A Letter From President Nader

Every issue of FSCNow is a new opportunity to tell the stories that bring to life the many ways we celebrate success at Farmingdale State College. We’re immensely proud of our commitment to supporting students throughout their college experiences. Our dynamic programs complement the industrious nature of our students and speak volumes about those things that make FSC such a special place.

Many of you have shared that FSC is one of the best stories never told. We’re looking to change that with a new brand initiative that clearly defines our identity and a strategic plan that provides measurable goals for the next five years. This helps sharpen our focus and ultimately will better serve our students and ensure their academic success. We’ve paid particular attention to stories that reflect a more engaging student experience, a more inclusive campus, and a carefully curated program mix that positions the College and the greater FSC community for a very bright future.

In this issue, we share stories that reflect our commitment to accessibility, affordability, and student support, backed by the strong vote of confidence from SUNY and new funding that enables many of our most important initiatives. We offer an affordable SUNY tuition that has remained unchanged for the past several years. We have successfully increased our scholarship fundraising efforts and this year awarded $1 million in additional scholarship aid, after need-based federal and state financial aid.

It’s important to note that our students’ success reflects the unrelenting efforts of our faculty and staff. You’ll read stories about them, too, and how they work tirelessly to create and sustain the best possible experience for students, during their time on campus and beyond.

The stories in this magazine truly demonstrate all the ways we are reimagining what’s possible here at FSC. Thank you for your support and for being a part of our distinct, vibrant, and continuously growing community.
