MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. -- SUNY Orange will highlight the newest academic building on its Middletown campus when it hosts its annual Fall Admissions Open House from 9 a.m. to Noon, Saturday, Nov. 8 in the Rowley Center for Science and Engineering.

During the open house, the College will provide information on its academic programs and student support services. High school students, adults looking to return to the classroom and any other interested prospective students are encouraged to attend in order to gather information about the College’s nearly 40 academic majors, as well as transfer and career possibilities students enjoy following graduation from SUNY Orange. Financial aid, scholarship guidelines and admissions information will be provided as well.

The Rowley Center is a state-of-the-art science center that opened this past August. The 107,000-square-foot building serves as home to the College’s STEM-related programs in architectural technology, biology, engineering and the sciences. It also houses 18 state-of-the-art learning laboratories as well as classrooms, small lecture rooms, a tutorial and study center, an architecture studio, faculty offices, computer laboratories, the Sandra and Alan Gerry Forum (for College and community events), conference rooms and a cafe. The upper floors deliver breathtaking views of the 37-acre Middletown campus and the nearby Middletown skyline.

The College boasts one of the finest student transfer success rates in the State University of New York system and provides diverse educational opportunities to help students meet their goals. SUNY Orange is also a member of the Hudson Valley Educational Consortium, which allows the College to bring emergency responder and innovative technology programs from other community colleges in the region to the campuses of SUNY Orange.

Students at SUNY Orange also enjoy many extra-curricular endeavors, and College representatives will have information regarding many of the programs, clubs and organizations available for students. SUNY Orange also operates a challenging academic Honors Program for highly motivated and talented students.

Tours of the Rowley Center, as well as the rest of the Middletown campus, will be provided throughout the morning and light refreshments will be available.
