One Dozen Honored for Outstanding Contributions to FSC’s Intercollegiate Athletic Program 

On September 29, 2023, Farmingdale State College (FSC) received one dozen new honorees into the Athletic Hall of Fame for their positive impacts on FSC’s intercollegiate athletic program, during the annual induction ceremony held in the Campus Center Ballroom.

Established in 1995, the Farmingdale State Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes exceptional athletes and contributors throughout the College’s history. This year’s inductees join 69 Farmingdale State Athletic Hall of Fame members, dating back to 1929.  

“We are thrilled to add these extraordinary individuals to our prestigious Athletic Hall of Fame,” said Tom Azzara, director of athletics. "It was an amazing night. Listening to the bios being read, you sometimes forget how amazing these 12 honorees are, and what they have meant to Farmingdale State College. It was a great way to kick off Homecoming Weekend, to say the least." 

“[The ceremony] brings us all back to celebrate not just the inductees, but the school,” said inductee Nicole Farber ’12, a senior administrative assistant at Naval Nuclear Laboratory. “Being a student athlete is a privilege, and working within an athletic department is no easy task. You are working amongst young adults, trying to figure their next chapter out. You have to be a role model for them, so to be able to honor those professionals, it speaks volumes on the success of the school. Above all, we get to see how far the school has come.”   

Farber and her husband, inductee Kevin Curtis ’11, a chemical operator for Sabic, traveled from their home in Glenmont, New York for the ceremony. The couple met their freshman year in Knapp Hall “getting our laundry and meal cards.” 

“Nostalgia is an understatement,” she added. “Kevin and I are so excited to be able to come back to where it all started. We just have so many great memories with our friends here. We dormed, we played sports, we took advantage of everything the school had to offer. We had nothing but fun during our time at Farmingdale. To be able to walk the campus and check out Nold Hall—we will never be able to put into words how excited we are! It’s just a really special time for us and our families.”
