PursueSomethingGreater A great education should develop disciplined minds and shatter preconceived notions. It should unlock opportunities for meaningful careers and advanced degrees. It should be a transformational experience that inspires you to pursue something greater than you ever imagined. But obtaining one shouldn’t have to require accumulating crushing debt — a burden that forces many to put the next stage of their lives on hold. The College at Brockport, State University of New York, is proof. Each of our top-notch professional programs — ranging from business to arts to the sciences — is grounded in an outstanding liberal arts education. That means that we don’t just train our students for particular jobs; we sharpen their critical thinking skills, preparing them to compete in an ever-changing world.

Brockport students are instructed by distinguished faculty in modern facilities, yet pay one of the lowest tuition rates in the nation. That’s value.

But don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs: • Kiplinger’s Personal Finance ranks Brockport among the “Top 100 Best Values in Public Colleges” • US News & World Report lists us as one of “America’s Best Colleges” • The Princeton Review rated us a “Best Northeastern College” • Brockport was named a “College of Distinction” by CollegesofDistinction.com

YourFutureInvestment As part of their liberal arts education, all Brockport students take classes in subjects such as English, history, math and science — in addition to courses in their chosen field of study. This broad curriculum equips students with a diverse knowledge base that will prepare them for the rest of their lives. Some Brockport students will go on to become teachers, physicians, lawyers and corporate executives. All of them will be citizens who make decisions that impact the lives of others. A liberal arts education gives students the tools to face these challenges in an informed and thoughtful way — preparing Brockport students to confront the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Dr. Steve Ireland has taught at Brockport for more than 40 years. He believes a liberal arts education has never been more important. “A high quality liberal arts education empowers you,” Ireland said. “It doesn’t train you for a particular job; it trains you for every job. It provides you with the knowledge, the understanding, the analytical and the communication skills necessary to adapt to the ever changing-world.” To read more about Dr. Ireland, visit www.brockport.edu/greater.

A Dynamic New Facility The liberal arts will have a sparkling new home on the Brockport campus come fall 2014. The new three-story, 61,000-square-foot Liberal Arts Building will feature rich technology integration, an auditorium, and gallery space to display Brockport’s E.E. Cummings artwork collection. It is also registered with the US Green Building Council and will take advantage of natural light and utilize bioretention and open pond areas to retain rainwater.

LauraClark ’13 Laura Clark earned her bachelor’s degree in Brockport — and in China, Italy, Greece and Chile. That was before winning a prestigious Fulbright Award that sent her to Spain. “Studying abroad taught me that education needs to occur both inside and outside of a classroom,” Laura said. “It made me a leader. It helped me develop a determination to succeed in any situation.” Learn more about Laura’s experience at www.brockport.edu/greater.

The College at Brockport offers one of the most expansive study abroad programs in the United States, allowing students to discover how education really comes to life in an international context. Explore the globe by participating in one or more of the College’s 120 programs in 37 countries — on all seven continents.

The opportunities are endless: • Study at a prestigious international university • Develop and enhance your language skills • B  e immersed in different countries, cultures, and cuisine • Create lifelong memories and friendships

DiscoverTheWorld Internships Internships are a crucial element in educational training and personal development. An internship helps build the professional interpersonal skills necessary for success in the job market. As competition for jobs increases, it’s even more important for students to participate in internships to give them a competitive edge after graduation. The College at Brockport offers many different internship opportunities that allow our students to gain practical experience.

Our internship and research programs include: • International Internships: spend a semester abroad living, working and learning in countries such as England, China, Australia and others • Washington Program: gain exposure to behind-the-scenes action of the Beltway • T  he Disney College Program: enjoy this multicultural experience working at Walt Disney World in Florida or Disneyland Resort in California • B  rockport Career Exploration Course: a college-wide internship program offered to all academic majors

MattLuther ’14 Matt Luther didn’t spend his summer bagging groceries. He spent it conducting research in a genetics laboratory as part of the Brockport Foundation’s Undergraduate Summer Research Internship Program. “It’s invaluable,” Matt said. “Hands-on learning is much more effective than sitting in a classroom learning off slides. I had the opportunity to work full time doing something in my field; doing something that is definitely going to help me when I apply to medical schools.” To read more about Matt’s experience visit www.brockport.edu/greater

Undergraduate Research At Brockport, research opportunities aren’t reserved just for graduate students. Research experiences provide undergraduates with the opportunity to build upon what they’ve learned in the classroom and discover even more as they work side by side with professors on projects with realworld applications.

Limitless opportunities: • Analyze Great Lakes water quality while preserving fragile wetlands

• C  horeograph a national touring dance performance • N  avigate the complexities of international business and trade • E  nhance athletic performance using state- of-the-art biomechanics equipment • Build a mobile application

UntapYourPotential The Honors College The Honors College brings together outstanding students to form a dynamic community of scholars and artists. Small, interactive Honors courses promote collaboration with faculty and peers, creative problem-solving, awareness of global perspectives and mastery of skills that are essential to success in college and beyond. Selected students with a high school GPA of 95 and SAT score of 1279 benefit from a full-tuition scholarship, iPad tablet and accelerated registration.

The Delta College Program The Delta College Program offers undergraduate students an alternate interdisciplinary approach to earning a bachelor’s degree. Small seminar-style classes, robust experiential-learning experiences and professional preparation are all essential components of the Delta Program. Completion of the bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree in three years is an option: however, many Delta students choose to stay the full four years, as they may want to complete a double major or minor.

DanielaBulos ’15 Daniela Bulos understands that only part of her Brockport education takes place inside the classroom. The junior psychology major participates in Brockport’s Leadership Development Program — a program designed to develop and sharpen key leadership skills so that students can discover their unlimited potential. “In the real world, you have to be able to work in a team. You need to be able to understand others,” Daniela says. “The Leadership Development Program has taught me how to do that.” To read more about Daniela visit www.brockport.edu/greater.

Leadership Development Program The Leadership Development Program assists students in developing leadership and career-related talents and helps students strengthen and enhance the skills necessary for academic success, civic responsibility and career achievement. The application of sound leadership principles enables Brockport students to hone their skills in order to take on larger and more critical challenges.

Opportunities within the Leadership Development Program include: • Attend leadership conferences • B  e considered for a Student Leadership Award • Apply  for campus leadership positions including Welcome Week assistant, student conduct board member, Living Learning Communities mentor and Community Development positions • Become involved in community service

The Brockport residential experience provides a safe and comfortable living and learning environment. Our residence halls are located in the heart of our vibrant campus community, connecting students with a network of classmates who will become lifelong friends. A Resident Director (RD) and a staff of Resident Assistants (RAs) lead each residence hall community.
