Suffolk’s First-Ever Student Radio Station Will Live-Stream 24-7, Launch 11-15 at 11:15!

scccir-logoPlaying “your fresh new variety of hits from yesterday and today,” Suffolk County Community College’s first-ever radio station will begin streaming live on Wednesday November 15 at 11:15 a.m. when College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay throws the switch to make the station live.

The new station was constructed over the summer adjacent to the college’s radio and television production studios. Programming will be pre-recorded by students and streamed 24 hours per day at scccir.com.

“This is a unique opportunity that provides our radio and television production students the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art technology that is incorporated into our curriculum,” McKay said. “Our faculty, staff and especially our students worked very hard over the summer and through the first half of the semester turning what started out as a storage room and a dream into a fully functional, live internet radio station,” McKay added. “This dream has finally become a reality.”

“Accessibility is the key to our station,” said Alan Bernstein, assistant academic chair and professor of radio and television production. “The greatest aspect of this new station is that we are here to stay.  We will be on the web, 24/7, 365 days a year, from this point forward.  So settle back and enjoy us.”

Suffolk’s pioneering  Radio- TV students who have been instrumental in the launch of the college’s first-ever radio station.

Alumni and friends, please consider a contribution to one of the following funds:

Ron Orlando Memorial Scholarship  – Help us endow this educational scholarship with an additional $6,000 in donations from alumni and friends!

First-Generation College Student Celebration 11/8/17 #celebratefirstgen

Finish_Strong

November 7, 2017

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:           Dr. Christopher Adams, Vice President for Student Affairs

Dr. Paul Beaudin, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs

SUBJECT:     First-Generation College Student Celebration

Tomorrow, in honor of the 52nd anniversary of the Higher Education Act, institutions around the country are celebrating the presence and experiences of first-generation college students, faculty, and staff.  Many of you may be first-generation college students and your story would undoubtedly be of interest to our students. On that day, we invite all members of our campus communities to wear apparel from their alma mater to highlight, celebrate and encourage our first-generation college students. The wearing of the apparel may help to engage in a conversation in which you share your own college experience as a discussion starter.

While being a first-generation college student is a real accomplishment, it is often fraught with challenges.  We have a number of tips and resources to facilitate student success. Many of these resources were highlighted last week as we encouraged all students to Finish Strong. Please refer to this website for additional details: https://www3.sunysuffolk.edu/finishstrong

To be an active part of First-Generation College Celebration tomorrow and beyond, please use #celebratefirstgen in your social media posts so the festivities can become a national event!

Thank you for all you do for our students.
