For those prospective students and parents in attendance, the College was able to showcase its academic programs, student support services and extracurricular activities, while providing information on financial aid, admissions, the Honors Program, tutorial services, Kindercollege, advising and counseling, the Community College Alliance with Franklin University, and the Hudson Valley Educational Consortium.

Interested students were also able to acquire information regarding courses offered at the Newburgh campus 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, provided guided tours of the College’s picturesque Middletown campus.

“This year’s Open House was a successful event in which prospective students, both high school students and adult learners, had the opportunity to discover the many benefits of a SUNY Orange education,” said Michael Roe, director of admissions. “We’re looking forward to providing another Open House in Newburgh, on Nov. 9, for prospective students living in the eastern portion of Orange County.”

The Newburgh Open House will run from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Tower Building, located on Lower Broadway at One Washington Center. For more information, contact the Admissions Office at (845) 341-4030 or visit www.sunyorange.edu.
