“I knew attending SUNY Orange would open many doors for me when I was ready to graduate. The A.S. Accounting program prepared me very well for transferring and assimilating to a four-year institution. I credit this level of readiness to the committed faculty and various resources the College has to offer. The professors make themselves approachable and go out of their way to help each student.”

-- Chris Skoog
