College is holding an open house, welcoming prospective students and their families
to its new Campus Center, off of Route 110/Broadhollow Road.
The event provides students the opportunity to meet with current Farmingdale students as well as professors, financial aid specialists, and athletic staff.
Tours of the 380-acre campus, led by Farmingdale “Rambassadors” provide opportunities to see the new interior of Gleeson Hall, laboratories, technology-enhanced classrooms and art galleries. For those considering living on campus, tours of Orchard and Dewey Halls are also offered.
Parents and students can join financial aid, admission and nursing information workshops which begin at 10:15 a.m.
Early application is encouraged as the number of applications to the college continues to grow.
“Our robust enrollment continues to speak to the value of a Farmingdale education,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Enrollment Management Patrick Calabria, in a statement. “Visiting a college campus is one of the best ways to determine whether or not a particular school will be the ‘right fit’ for both student and family.”
The college specializes in career-focused degrees, including aeronautical science, global business management, applied psychology, visual communications, horticulture, criminal justice, sport management, professional communications, medical technology, and more.
The college’s open house is held on the same day as “Waste Not Want Not,” an educational field day at the campus’ Sustainable Garden. Offered by the newly re-named Department of Urban Horticulture and Design, the day-long event (8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.) will also feature a CSA Fair from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. There is no admission fee to the Community Sustained Agriculture Fair; admission to the field day is $10 in support of the Sustainable Garden.
