"Soldiers can continue their education, thanks to SUNY Empire State College." That's the message in a piece recently aired on the Syracuse, Oswego and Auburn YNN station. To view more, go to here
For almost 30 years, the college has served several hundred soldiers at Fort Drum as well as military spouses and civilians. To learn more about the services the college offers veterans and active military students visit: www.esc.edu/military.
SUNY Empire State College was established in 1971 to offer adult learners the opportunity to earn associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the State University of New York.
In addition to awarding credit for prior college-level learning, the college pairs each student with a faculty mentor who supports that student throughout his or her college career. Students engage in guided independent study and course work onsite, online or a combination of both, which provides the flexibility for students to learn at the time, place and pace they choose.
The college serves more than 20,000 students worldwide at more than 35 locations in New York state and online. Its 63,000 alumni are active in their communities as entrepreneurs, politicians, business professionals, artists, nonprofit agency employees, teachers, veterans and active military, union members and more.
More information about the college is available here.
