COLLEGE PLANS FOR NOV. 9 ADMISSIONS OPEN HOUSE IN NEWBURGH

10/25/2010

College Admissions Staff to Highlight Curriculum, Newburgh Degree Programs, Campus Expansion

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – With seven degree programs, a new building set to open in January and a full slate of support services available to students at its Newburgh campus, SUNY Orange will showcase its programs and services in Newburgh during a Fall Admissions Open House on Tuesday, Nov. 9 in the Tower Building, One Washington Center.

Admissions staff, student services personnel, faculty members and representatives of extra-curricular activities will be on hand from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Assembly Room (Room 221) of the Tower Building. Prospective students and their families are invited to learn more about the many new opportunities afforded to students on the Newburgh campus, including financial aid, scholarship guidelines and admissions information.

Construction of Kaplan Hall, located at the intersection of First and Grand streets, is nearly complete. The 87,000-square-foot building will anchor the expanded Newburgh campus and will open for classes when the Spring semester begins on Jan. 18. By February, the Tower Building will be closed for a year’s worth of renovations which, when complete, will allow SUNY Orange to double the number of students it can serve in Newburgh, from the equivalent of 600 full-time students now to nearly 1,200.

The Newburgh campus has already received “branch campus” status and has been offering full degrees in six academic programs: business management, criminal justice, criminal justice-police, human services, individual studies and liberal arts-humanities. The College just recently learned its planned “spring” nursing program for Newburgh has received state approval and certification.
