Community Engagement

Farmingdale State College seeks community and industry partners to strengthen relationships with the Long Island community and surrounding areas, to promote civic engagement, and to engage in public outreach activities so that our students may be educated to become engaged citizens who are prepared to contribute to the public good.

  • Dress For Success Fashion Show: FSC students volunteered to participate in an interview-wear fashion show and resume workshop to promote career readiness. This service event was hosted by the Nexus Center in partnership with Dress for Success, a non-profit organization providing interview-ready clothes for underemployed women and female college students. Thanks also to corporate sponsors, Lord & Taylor and Men's Wearhouse.
