SUNY Orange Mission: We are a community of learners dedicated to reaching out to all citizens of Orange County to enrich their lives through the highest-quality education possible.


“Some people question the quality of the education received at a two year institution. The education we obtained at SUNY Orange was not about memorizing facts or regurgitating equations back onto tests. What we learned was to take that knowledge and information and apply it to our everyday life. We now have the tools we need to be successful. We do not need to wait for opportunities to knock; we can build our own doors.” Alex De La Rosa, Class of 2014

currently enrolled in the International Studies program at American University

“Teaching at SUNY Orange is very rewarding and gratifying. I truly enjoy contributing to the intellectual development of the students and being part of their journey of lifelong learning. Students here have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education through close interaction with their instructors and peers. Faculty and staff--all employees for that matter--are committed to maintaining high academic standards, yet providing close support and assistance to help students succeed.” Joe Zurovchak Biology professor

“As a SUNY Orange student, I received more than a great education—I was afforded the ability to build local relationships that laid the foundation for my company’s success in the county. As a President’s Scholar, I was fortunate to directly benefit from the generosity of the College. Today, I am honored to return my experiences to others who follow a similar path, and support the many SUNY Orange students who bring immeasurable value to our community.” Mike Martucci, Class of 2005 Owner, Quality Bus Service LLC

“Let’s find the next Mark Zuckerberg. He or she could be here in Orange County. We need to find who they are and we need to get them here. This is the people’s college, given to us by the people of this county, and we are proud of what we do here.” Rich Rowley Chair, SUNY Orange Foundation Board of Directors

“Going to college affords you the opportunity to find yourself, define yourself or rediscover who you are. The best thing about doing that here is the people right alongside you doing the same. I never felt alone, through any hardship, because I met some of the most genuine and giving people you could hope to meet in a lifetime. I have made friends that I will be sure to hold onto, because they have enriched my life and experience here beyond measure.” Brittney Flaherty, Class of 2013 currently enrolled in the civil engineering program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
