97th Commencement Exercises at Farmingdale State College           

May 16, 2016

 

WHAT: 97th Commencement Exercises at Farmingdale State College            

WHEN: Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.  

WHERE: Nold Hall

DETAILS: Almost 1,400 students will process on Saturday – over 1,150 with bachelor’s degrees, 192 with associate’s degrees, and 12 with certificates.   Exceptional academic achievement – as reflected by Latin Honors – has been recognized for 479 graduates.

 At 10 a.m., students will graduate with degrees from the Schools of Business and Health Sciences; at 3 p.m., students will graduate with degrees from the Schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering Technology.

 Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Foundation and former State Legislator, will receive an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.

 A live video stream will be held for the two ceremonies.  Given Farmingdale’s continued enrollment growth, holding two ceremonies was the only way to accommodate the graduates and their guests in a building on campus.  And requests to live video stream the ceremonies come from the families of our increasing diverse student population, including those in other countries.

 Four graduating students have received SUNY’s Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence:

  • Kristin Bonura, Nursing
  • Kinza Nadeem Kasher, Visual Communications
