Grab your best jersey and favorite baseball hat because the 6th annual SUNY Alumni Night at the Ballpark is a great event for SUNY alumni to enjoy a fantastic night of baseball and networking with their family and friends! The push for the playoffs is on in Major League Baseball, especially in the American League, and we are excited on Wednesday, September 27th to root-root-root for the home team, the New York Yankees as they take on the Tampa Bay Rays!

Whether you majored in biology or art, graduated in 1975 or 2016, there is no better way to network and meet members of our SUNY community than this annual event. We encourage you to take this opportunity to meet your fellow SUNY alumni members (we do have over 3 million!) and watch the Yankees march towards the playoffs. Be sure to come to Yankee Stadium with your favorite SUNY gear to represent your campus as SUNY fills the stadium. All are welcome to this event, so bring your family and friends along to watch some all-star athletes with some all-star alumni!

All who purchase a ticket to SUNY Alumni Night at the Ballpark will receive a voucher good for 2 complimentary tickets to a select 2018 regular season home game at Yankee Stadium.

Of course, there is plenty of quality baseball to see this night. Yankee rookie outfielder Aaron Judge is nearing a record for most home runs by a rookie. You might have seen him hit one 495 (!) feet earlier this year that passed over the outfield bleachers. Catcher Gary Sanchez is already putting himself in the same group as all-time Yankee greats with his power at the plate too.

Event Details

Enjoy a networking event from 5:30pm-7pm with all-you-can-eat ballpark fare and drinks, including beer and wine, in the all new MasterPass Batter’s Eye Deck at Yankee Stadium. After a fun-filled networking hour with your fellow SUNY alumni, everyone will make their way to their seats in the 200-level (perhaps with some new friends!) to watch the Yankees take on the Tampa Bay Rays. This fun event and excellent seats are available for just $89 per ticket!

To recap, let’s go over six reasons you should go to Alumni Night at the Ballpark:

  1. It’s a great way to meet other SUNY alumni and share your favorite SUNY memories.
  2. All you can eat ballpark fare, including beer and wine!
  3. You can bring family and friends to enjoy this great event in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium.
  4. Watch all-star talent that will be on the field, like Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luis Severino, Starlin Castro, and more.
  5. Show your SUNY pride! We love to see Yankee Stadium filled with SUNY colors for the whole world to see and this night is always perfect way to make it happen.
  6. All tickets purchased for SUNY Alumni Night at the Ballpark will receive a voucher good for 2 complimentary tickets to a select 2018 regular season home game at Yankee Stadium! Full details will be available at the game.

Long Island’s 5th Annual Car Free Day

September 20, 2017

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:           Dr. Paul Beaudin, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs

SUBJECT:     Long Island’s 5th Annual Car Free Day

The College’s Office of Sustainability has actively promoted Long Island’s Annual Car Free Day, for many years.  I would like to thank Executive Director Nick Palumbo for his efforts related to this event.  Car Free Day 2017 is set to take place this Friday, September 22nd.  This event seeks to highlight the environmental, traffic and parking benefits of alternative transportation modes and is a great way to demonstrate our institutional commitment to sustainability.

Using alternative modes of transportation such as mass transit, carpooling, bicycles, walking and telecommuting helps reduce traffic and parking problems, conserve energy, reduce harmful emissions, and save money. Last year, as part of Car Free Day, more than 4,100 Long Islanders pledged to be car free or car-lite, resulting in the avoidance of 84,000 miles of driving and 42 tons of CO2 emissions.

Please join us by participating in Long Island’s 5th Annual Car Free Day this coming Friday—September 22, 2017. Take the pledge to join this effort at Carfreedayli.com

Frederick Hansley

The Suite Life: A Career in Hospitality Management

The Hotel and Resort Management program at Suffolk County Community College, strategically situated in Riverhead, is tailor-made to prepare students for rewarding careers in this booming industry….

Frederick Hansley graduated from the program in 2012 and was able to land a job right away at the Residence Inn in Holtsville as a result of connections made through the College’s job fair. Now, as the General Manager of the Hampton Inn in Islandia, N.Y., he reflects fondly about his education at Suffolk. “The professors have real-world backgrounds and I appreciated how the program is designed to provide hands-on experience for students,” he says.

Regarding Changes to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

September 6, 2017

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:           Dr. Shaun L. McKay, President

Subject:          Regarding Changes to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), has offered relief from the fear of deportation for certain individuals whose parents brought them to the United States as children.  For more than three years, the College has progressively worked to distribute information and implement programs that enhance the types of support it has been able to offer to students who qualified for DACA.

 

With yesterday’s announcement from the nation’s capital, I want to publicly state that the College will continue to hold its commitment to inclusion and student safety in the highest regard.

 

I have seen great progress as we have worked together to build a supportive culture that assists all students in attaining our nation’s promise of opportunity. We have a right to be proud of our accomplishments, such as: 1) In independent student surveys, the College ranks at the top of all SUNY institutions regarding its development of a culture of acceptance–and, we are at the bottom when it comes to students witnessing acts of intolerance; 2) We recently charged the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding with responsibility for communicating and promoting knowledge regarding issues of human rights, justice, equity, and equality; 3) We have restructured and funded our multicultural affairs efforts college-wide, in order to guarantee they are impactful and will provide enhanced support to a diverse student body. As a result, we are building an appreciation of the many facets of difference that exist within the College and across the County.

 

Through the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding, our work with Achieving the Dream, the activities contained within our Diversity Strategic Plan, and our updated approach to multiculturalism, it is clear that a reminder regarding our  continued commitment to our undocumented students could not be timelier.  I will look to the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding to now take an assertive stand in leading the conversation on this issue of social injustice. I can think of no higher priority at this point in our institution’s history, than for all of us to be working together toward passage of replacement legislation for DACA.  Better yet, an inclusive immigration policy that would strengthen our nation and propel us toward enhanced greatness as a country whose success has occurred through the contributions of immigrants.

 

It is at this precise moment when we must stand as a beacon of light.  It is more important than ever that we work to ensure an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcomed and anyone who wants an education and is willing to work for it, can come to us to achieve their goals and dreams.  Although we came to this institution with a multitude of differences, by working together we will achieve great things during this academic year that will ultimately benefit all communities.

 

As I stated in my remarks during yesterday’s Convocation, our College is, and will always be, a place of welcome and trust.  Thankfully, our college community has flourished as a result of the daily contributions made by thousands of individuals with integrity, who can accept and celebrate the existence of differences–realizing that those differences bring value to us all.  This has occurred intentionally, and incrementally, through each and every encounter that takes place here on a daily basis.

 

The only way to triumph over ignorance is through education. Here at this College we provide pathways of success for all, as well as supports that will help our students to complete the journey. Learning is infinite… and as a teaching and learning institution, we will continue to grow and expand as we work collaboratively with mutual respect for each other.

 

I have asked Dr. Christopher Adams, Vice President for Student Affairs, and Renee Ortiz, Director of the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding to compile DACA resource information for our use and for distribution to our students. This will be shared with you as soon as it is prepared.

 

Together, as a community, we must commit ourselves to tolerance, to understanding, and to advocating for those who need our help at this moment in time.  This involves a commitment from everyone.   Embracing social justice is at the core of why we do what we do.  This is, in fact, the greatest work of personal and professional transformation.
