Leonardo Figueredo won Suffolk County Community College’s Chopped-like culinary competition Battle for the Beach with a delectable baked airline chicken breast with natural au jus and butternut squash risotto seasoned with cream and fresh thyme.

Student contestants were presented with a mystery basket of ingredients – a whole chicken and butternut squash —  that they had  to turn into a mouth-watering dish. The competition is similar to the popular reality television show “Chopped” airing on the Food Network.

The judges — five of Suffolk’s faculty chefs and Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun McKay– evaluated each student’s creation on creativity, presentation and taste.

Huntington’s Victoria Shannon placed second with her roasted breast of chicken paired with roasted cauliflower, garlic mashed potatoes and butternut squash. Candice Weiss of Bayport placed third with baked chicken, roasted maple glazed butternut squash and asparagus spears.

Top Chef Leonardo Figueredo won a seven-night stay at the Sheraton Clearwater Beach Resort in Clearwater, Fla., and an opportunity to work under the supervision of the resort’s executive chef.  The prize includes round-trip airfare and ground transportation.

Suffolk County Community College Honors Students Meet with Distinguished Columbia University Scholar

Students from the Suffolk County Community College Honors Program traveled to Columbia University last week to meet with Dr. Thomas Bailey, Director of the Community College Research Center (CCRC).

Housed at Teachers College, Columbia University, CCRC is the leading independent authority on the nation’s nearly 1,200 two-year colleges. Bailey, who holds a Ph.D. in Economics from MIT, has authored or co-authored nine books about various topics connected to higher education. One of his areas of expertise is student persistence, completion, and transfer. Honors students spent a few hours discussing some of the CCRC’s research findings in these areas and also had an opportunity to discuss higher education equity and funding issues with Dr. Bailey.

This is the third year that the Honors Program has visited Columbia University. Honors students met with Dr. Andrew Delbanco, author of College: What It Was, Is, and Should Be in 2012; and in 2013, Honors students met with post-doctoral research associates to discuss a journal article about the community college first-year experience.

Honors Program counselor, Professor Matthew Zisel, hopes to continue this collaboration with Columbia University. By visiting an Ivy League college for a day and discussing issues related to higher education with Ivy League faculty, Honors students feel empowered and motivated to transfer to highly selective colleges and universities. And indeed, many Honors students have done so with the assistance of the Honors Program faculty.

Spreading Good Cheer! In The Cards For Suffolk County Community College Student

 Evan Feliciano

Suffolk County Community College student Evan Feliciano, 21, of Hauppauge, holds his S.H.A.R.K! Card

Spreading good cheer during the holiday season has taken on new meaning for Suffolk County Community College student Evan Feliciano, 21, of Hauppauge, who created a unique way to pass forward the good tidings of the season all year round.

“I think it’s important to spread kindness and get a chain reaction going,” said Feliciano, who attends classes on the college’s Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood.

Feliciano created S.H.A.R.K! cards to help his mini on-campus movement that he hopes to spread to Suffolk’s two other campuses. The card’s name, a take-off on the College’s athletics teams’ name – is an acronym for “Students Here Are Really Kind” — and Feliciano and a team of helpers pass the cards out whenever they see students or campus visitors being nice to one another. Feliciano and his friends, in turn, encourage the card recipients to likewise pass the card along if the holder witnesses a good deed.

“So far, it has been received very well,” Feliciano said. “I hope I can spread it to our other campuses.”
