School Notes:

The State University of New York at Canton is a public, coeducational, residential college located on a spacious campus along the banks of the Grasse River. Its northern location places SUNY Canton close to the Adirondack Mountains, the St. Lawrence River, and major Canadian cities such as Ottawa and Montreal. Originally founded in 1906 as the School of Agriculture (SOA) at St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton was the first postsecondary, two-year college in New York authorized by the Legislature. In 1941, SOA was renamed the New York State Agricultural and Technical Institute (ATI). ATI became a member college of the State University of New York in 1948. To recognize advanced technology programs added in the 1950's and '60's, the college underwent another name change in 1965, this time becoming the State University of New York Agricultural and Technical College at Canton, or ATC. In 1987, the University's Board of Trustees authorized yet another name change -- to the college's present designation as State University of New York College of Technology at Canton. SUNY Canton cultivates the minds of tomorrow as Northern New York's two and four-year college for technology, health, management and public service. SUNY Canton offers seven majors leading to bachelor degrees, 23 programs leading to associate degrees, and 12 programs leading to one-year certificates. Numerous articulation agreements with other institutions provide for other opportunities in fields such as business administration, forestry and medicine. Graduates of two-year programs may either stay and continue on in one of the bachelor degree programs, transfer to another institution, or begin their career immediately. Academic facilities include eight classroom buildings, containing many specialized labs for practice in technology-based disciplines; Southworth Library, which houses more than 65,000 volumes, 6,000 microfilms, 300 periodical subscriptions and 1,500 video and audio recordings, and access to more than 25 electronic information research databases. The State University of New York at Canton is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
