Another week filled with recruitment opportunities for the Admissions crew! This week, we were fortunate to have had opportunities to both host students on our campus, as well as to travel out into the surrounding community to connect with students where they’re at.

On Monday, the admissions team welcomed a group of 40 high school seniors from A Philip Randolph High School in Manhattan. During their time with us, students toured the campus and the Student Village, learned more about SUNY Broome and its support services with the help of the EOP and Financial Aid departments (thanks, Venessa and Rich!), and enjoyed lunch at our dining hall. We’re hopeful that some students from A Philip Randolph will consider SUNY Broome as they make their college decisions, and that we’ll be able to see them again next fall.

The second group that came to visit this week was a group of 15 with a much shorter commute, from Harpursville High School. The group consisted of students involved in the Fast Forward program, so they’re already SUNY Broome students, but their visit was a great opportunity to show them the full extent of what that means for them. During their visit, the group toured campus, learned more about library resources and tutoring opportunities, got their student IDs, toured the fitness center, and enjoyed lunch on campus (a big thank you to Paul, Loreta, Beth, and Heather for your help!)

As well as hosting students on campus, representatives traveled this week to Union-Endicott High School and Tompkins-Seneca-Tioga BOCES. Admissions director Maja Szostak traveled to Union-Endicott for a walk-in Instant Admit, at which nearly 40 students took advantage of the opportunity to be instantly accepted to SUNY Broome, check in on their existing applications, and ask questions about SUNY Broome and our admissions processes. Staff Assistant Anya Samiljan traveled to TST BOCES on Wednesday for their annual College Exploration event, at which over one hundred and fifty students from high schools from the surrounding area were able to speak with admissions staff and get more information about their local college options.

Looking ahead to next week, we are welcoming Deposit High School for a “College Express” day in which every senior will walk away with an acceptance letter. If you see us touring campus or popping into your class, please say hello and give a warm welcome to some new incoming Fall 2023 students!

Would you like to speak to Admissions regarding your program or department? We would love to connect with you! Each Wednesday, we are hosting “Information Wednesdays” in the Wales Office, where campus partners are invited to speak with the department so that we can learn more about your program, any upcoming events, highlights, and partnership opportunities.

If you are interested, you can sign up online at SUNY Broome Information Wednesdays.
