Frederick Hansley ’12 The Suite Life: A Career in Hospitality Management

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.

LANSDOWNE, Va., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Today, the Cooke Foundation announced the opening of the application period for the largest private scholarship in the United States for community college transfer students. Exceptional community college students with financial need and plans to transfer to a four-year college or university have until noon ET on October 24 to apply for a prestigious Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, which is worth up to $40,000 per year.

“Community college students are more likely than students at four-year schools to come from families with low and moderate incomes. Yet they are just as likely to possess the capacity and drive to succeed at our most elite colleges and universities,” said Cooke Foundation Executive Director Harold O. Levy. “If a high-achieving community college student wants to transfer to a four-year institution, we want to remove financial need as a barrier to their success.”

Since 2002, 860 Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholars have received over $36 million in scholarship assistance. A 2015 Cooke Foundation study found that the Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholars routinely do better at elite four-year institutions than many students who started as freshmen.

One former recipient of the scholarship, Christina Simons, began her studies at Suffolk County Community College in New York. After receiving a Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, she transferred to the California Institute of the Arts, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in photography and media in 2012. She now plans to attend the University of Oxford to study for a master of fine arts degree and a Ph.D. in contemporary art practice.

A total of 45 Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarships will be awarded in the spring. A review panel of university admissions professionals and faculty will judge scholarship applicants based on their achievements and academic ability, financial need, persistence, leadership and service to others.

To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must: 1) currently attend an accredited community college or have graduated from a community college since 2013, 2) have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or better, 3) demonstrate significant unmet financial need, and 4) plan to enroll in a full-time baccalaureate program at an accredited college or university in fall 2018.

Cooke Scholarships fund the costs of attending college not covered by other financial aid, plus academic advising, stipends for internships, study abroad, and opportunities to network with other Cooke Scholars and alumni. In addition, after earning a bachelor’s degree, Cooke Scholars may be eligible to apply for the Cooke Graduate Scholarship.

To find out more about the Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, and to start your application, please visit our site.

The Cooke Foundation is dedicated to advancing the education of exceptionally promising students who have financial need. Since 2000, the foundation has awarded $175 million in scholarships to more than 2,300 students from 8th grade through graduate school, along with comprehensive counseling and other support services. The foundation has also provided over $97 million in grants to organizations that serve such students. www.jkcf.org

It’s Now the Bridgehampton National Bank / Suffolk Community College Golf Classic Thanks to BNB’s Generous Donation to College Foundation

BNB_Logo_Tag_4C
F_Suffolk Golf Logos-Reflex
The Suffolk Community College Foundation Annual Golf Classic is renamed the Bridgehampton National Bank / Suffolk Community College Golf Classic thanks to a generous sponsorship donation from Bridgehampton National Bank (BNB), both the bank and college announced today.

Kevin M. O’Connor, president and chief executive officer of BNB and a Suffolk County Community College graduate (’82) was previously named as the event’s honoree.

“Our investment in Suffolk County Community College is an investment not only in education, but in the future of Long Island. This is where I got my start and I appreciate that education every day.  I encourage more of our best and brightest students to choose Suffolk, and make a career on Long Island. BNB is committed to the success of local business and that starts with the next generation,” O’Connor said.

“Bridgehampton National Bank and Kevin O’Connor are enthusiastic supporters of our college and this major foundation event. We are honored by BNB’s support of the Foundation and our college,” said Dr. Shaun L. McKay, president of Suffolk County Community College. “Our students and the residents of Suffolk County directly benefit from BNB’s presence in our county,” McKay said, “and this is another example of how BNB demonstrates its devotion to the community at large.”

The Bridgehampton National Bank / Suffolk Community College Golf Classic will also feature opportunities to win unique prizes.

Your golf drive might not be the only “drive” you can show off thanks to  Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island who has generously donated a hole-in-one prize of a new Maserati for the Suffolk Community College Foundation 33rd Annual Golf Classic on August 22.

A 2016 Maserati Ghibli will be driven away by a lucky golfer if he or she can score a hole-in-one on the fourth hole of the Hamlet Golf and Country Club in Commack.

Not a golfer? Support the college by attending the awards reception and dinner.
The reception and dinner will provide another opportunity to drive a sleek Italian sports car.

A Maserati Weekend experience will be auctioned along with dozens of other prizes during the dinner hour.

The proceeds from the Bridgehampton National Bank / Suffolk Community College Golf Classic will support need and merit-based scholarships, emergency student loans and quality academic enrichment programs for Suffolk County Community College students.

“Last year, more than 500 students were helped by more than $650,000 in aid from the Suffolk Community College Foundation,” said Dr. Sylvia A. Diaz, executive director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.

The Classic will tee-off on Monday, August 22, 2016 at the Hamlet Golf and Country Club in Commack.  Registration includes 18 holes of golf, access to the driving range and putting green, golf cart, lunch, a cocktail reception and a celebratory dinner featuring raffle drawings, auction and awards ceremony.

Early registration is $300 per golfer and $1,100 for a foursome.

Register for the Golf Classic at the Foundation’s website at www.sunysuffolk.edu/golf .
