SUNY Canton broke an attendance record March 21 when it welcomed 155 incoming students to campus for the first spring Admitted Student Day.
Director of Admissions Bruce L. Smith credited the high turnout to the appeal of the College’s career-focused majors and the faculty’s reputation for possessing professional, real-world experience.
“SUNY Canton is well-known for providing an affordable, accessible education, as well as a dedication to creating an environment that encourages personal and professional growth,” he said. “With more than 40 majors available, students are able to choose from a one, two or four-year curriculum.”
During the event, students and their families had the opportunity to learn more about the College through guided tours and meetings with faculty, staff and current students. Guests also were also able to sample campus cuisine and some enjoyed ice skating in the new Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center, nicknamed Roos House.
The next Admitted Student Days are scheduled for April 11, April 18 and May 2. The College is also hosting an Open House April 25. For more information on all upcoming events, visit www.canton.edu.
