Farmingdale State College Alumni Association



Hello Farmingdale Alumni:

NEW

The Office for Alumni Relations will soon relocate to the first floor of Ward Hall. Renovations are almost finished and we look forward to a centralized location housed in a vintage campus building. The main contact phone number remains 631-420-2369. Watch the Alumni web page for our Grand Opening in early September. Please be sure to visit the Alumni web page often for updates and event information at www.farmingdale.edu/alumni.


Professor Becker’s BBQ Sauce Update

Thanks to our retail partner, Zorn’s of Bethpage, for promoting sales of our wonderful product. Recently, alumnus Joe Egan and I appeared on the News 12 morning show where we were able to present recipes featuring the sauce. We met lots of hungry News 12 staffers that day. You can become a fan on Facebook at the Professor Becker’s BBQ Sauce Lovers’ group page. Also, you can friend us on the Facebook Farmingdale State College Alumni Association page.


Nominations for Centurion Club

We seek candidates for inclusion in the Centurion Club, which identifies the top 100 alumni of our first 100 years. To nominate yourself or other outstanding alumni, contact Alumni Relations at 631-420-2369 or email alumni@farmingdale.edu.


Contribute Through Annual Campaign

We have just concluded our Annual Campaign mailing. Watch for your materials to arrive in September. As we grow our outreach, your encouragement enhances alumni programming and scholarships. And, reconnecting during this special Centennial campaign is significant in documenting our college’s legacy. Thank you for your continuing support of alumni goals at Farmingdale State College.


Stay in Touch Through Harris Direct

Look for a Harris Direct postcard in the mail shortly. Your inclusion in the special Centennial Edition of the directory with enhanced features will enable us to verify your information. The directory is a great networking tool.
