5/1/17 In Our Backyard Series

In Our Backyard

The Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding (CSJHU) recognizes that when incidents occur and issues arise in our surrounding communities, they impact the day to day lives of our Suffolk County Community College students.

Most recently, our college community has been deeply affected by the violent incidents and increase in gang activity within areas surrounding our campuses. In response to these incidents the CSJHU, in collaboration with the College Wide Office of Multicultural Affairs and College Campus Activities, would like to introduce a new and ongoing program entitled, “In Our Backyard”.

In Our Backyard is a forum created to offer a safe and supportive environment for our students to discuss and share their feelings, thoughts and concerns regarding these incidents as well as organized training to develop productive ways to respond through community advocacy and engagement.

The first in the series will take place College wide, on Monday, May 1st during common hour (11am – 12 pm) at the following locations on each campus.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact the CSJHU: (631) 451-4117.

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Give the Gift of Sight

FACTS: 

In the western world, we take vision for granted  !!!  

We think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars for eyeglasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery. Good eyesight for us is essential as it affects every aspect of our waking lives.

It is equally essential for hundreds of millions of people in developing world countries who need glasses but don’t have them. Poor eyesight for them can mean the difference between working and not working, gathering enough food or going hungry, being able to read or remaining illiterate.

13 Million Children around the world need glasses. Many of these children risk missing their education because they cannot see well enough to learn    :  (

Imagine yourself with blurred vision…all day long….all month long…all year long.       :  (

YOU get the picture!  SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ???   While  you are SPRING cleaning,  when you find those old glasses that you usually toss back into the draw  (for emergencies) … pick them up and send them to US so we can help some of the half billion people of all ages to be able to have SIGHT !!

You can send your used (but not broken) eyewear to me at the address below.  Please do NOT send eye glass cases.  Just wrap in a bubble wrap or a paper towel- mark your package FRAGILE and send to:

Ammerman Campus –

Newsday – With state grant, Suffolk community college opens new vets center

Suffolk County Community College has long reached out to a special group of students: veterans. Last spring, the school opened dedicated resource centers for the veterans on all three of its campuses.

A new $23,000 grant from the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council will go toward building a 1,700-square-foot permanent facility on the Ammerman campus in Selden to assist veterans, moving the center out of its temporary home and into a new facility in Kreiling Hall, which is also slated for renovation.

The grant was part of a total of $62 million awarded to 101 projects on Long Island, announced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Dec. 8.

“The crux of the new grant we’re getting will help us to renovate the new facility,” said Shannon O’Neill ’00, director of veterans affairs for Suffolk County Community College.

O’Neill said the school has about 700 veterans or military-connected students among its 26,000 students. The resource centers gather all of the relevant programs and information for the students and help veterans apply for various benefits and assistance.

“The resource centers provide benefit advisement for the GI Bill as well as tuition assistance. We also assist with some job placement programs, especially for specific organizations and corporations looking to recruit veterans,” O’Neill said. “In addition, we work with all local organizations to assist veterans transitioning from the military back into civilian life.”

Vincent Miller, 43, a student from Westhampton Beach, said he’s made use of the SCCC centers as a physical sanctuary as well as a place to learn about benefits.

“It’s been a great asset for veterans coming back in to school – [it] points them in the right direction and a place where you can just come back and relax inside an area with people who have been through the same situation as you,” said Miller, who is studying business management and hopes to run his own automotive or craftsman business someday. “A lot of times you get the resources here you need, like reading materials or scholarships that are strictly for veterans.”

Miller served in the Army as a sergeant first class and was deployed to Iraq in 2003. He’s met fellow veterans in the resource centers as well. “It’s just a great way to reach out and touch other people who have been in the same position,” Miller said.

Another student and veteran, Jason Chervin, 27, of Holbrook, works part-time at the center and says the resource centers offer veterans a sense of community.

“We have veterans coming in with questions that they had coming out of service that aren’t completely answered, and they’re able to use the resources that the VA has to help guide them through the program,” said Chervin, who is planning to transfer to Stony Brook University’s nursing program upon graduating from SCCC. “They have a path, they have some place to go with questions where there’s people who have been through it already or understand or specialize in the field.” he said.

Chervin served in the Navy as a petty officer third class.

Nassau Community College also has a veterans center on its Garden City campus for its 310 veteran students, according to NCC spokeswoman Kate Murray.

The renovation of Kreiling Hall and the construction of the new veterans resource center are to begin in April, and school officials hope to open the center in the spring of 2018.

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 .
