Smiley celebrates 50 years as faculty member

Distinguished Teaching Professor Marilynn Smiley recently celebrated 50 years as a faculty member at SUNY Oswego. The Indiana native ‘cut a deal’ with her father to pursue music in college. Smiley, who came to Oswego in 1961, still carries a full load as a professor of music with a specialty in musicology — and a long résumé of eclectic research, talented students, women’s equality efforts, organization work with such groups as Vega and the American Association of University Women, musical groups like the SUNY Oswego Recorder Consort and much more.
