SUNY Orange to Offer Pair of Receptions for Interested Prospective Students

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange will conduct a pair of upcoming admissions receptions that will focus on the College’s growing Arts and Communication degree programs as well as its challenging Honors Program for exceptional students.

Under the direction of its Arts and Communication Department, the College offers Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degrees in music and visual communications. Graduates from SUNY Orange’s arts degree programs have transferred to a variety of four-year colleges and universities, and the College has an agreement with SUNY Purchase that allows for smooth transfer for music graduates. Career opportunities for graduates include music, theater, fine arts, communication, computer graphics and multi-media. In addition to a presentation from faculty and admissions staff, those in attendance will take a tour of the College’s arts facilities.

To support its performing arts programs, the College sponsors a variety of performance ensembles, including symphonic band, community orchestra, Apprentice Players (theater group), jazz ensemble, choir and madrigal singers. Visual communication students are afforded opportunities to gain practical experience through a variety of internships and practicum courses.

The College’s Honors Program offers highly motivated and talented students opportunities for personal growth, educational discovery and academic achievement through advanced coursework, community service and an independent research project. Its goal is help students build self-confidence by tackling new academic challenges, become leaders on campus and in their community and establish a foundation for success in future academic and professional endeavors.

During the Honors Program event, prospective students will meet current Honors Program students and faculty members. There will also be a discussion on “Terrorism and Society,” which is the theme of the program’s Honors Seminar this semester.
