Shepard Student Center.

More than 175 people attended the event, with nearly half registering as prospective students. Faculty and staff members were available to answer questions regarding nearly every academic and support department on campus, including financial aid, admissions, the Honors Program, tutorial services, Kindercollege, and advising and counseling. Interested students were also able to acquire information regarding courses offered at the Newburgh Extension Center and the College’s satellite locations at Monroe-Woodbury, Port Jervis and Warwick Valley high schools.

In addition, members of the SUNY Orange Ambassadors, a service-oriented student group, joined with staff and faculty members to provide guided tours of the College’s picturesque Middletown campus.

“Our Fall Open House is a great opportunity for high school seniors to compare the opportunities available at SUNY Orange with those at other schools they may be visiting at this time of year,” said Michael Roe, SUNY Orange director of admissions and recruitment. “It is important for us to offer prospective students a chance to learn about what we have to offer. There are many things that factor into their decision, but we don’t want them to forget about SUNY Orange and the wonderful opportunities we can provide for them right in their own back yard.

We appreciate them giving us a chance to showcase our fine academic programs and comprehensive student support services,” Roe added.

While high school seniors dominated the list of attendees, a sampling of potential adult students and high school juniors were on hand as well.

The Admissions Office will continue its community outreach efforts on Sunday, Oct. 21 when it will staff it’s monthly information booth from Noon to 4 p.m. in the lower level center court of Middletown’s Galleria Mall.
