About SUNY Orange:
SUNY Orange was founded in 1950 as the first county-sponsored community college in the State University of New York system.

The college has earned its reputation as a pioneer and innovator in meeting the needs of its students and the area it primarily serves. SUNY Orange was the first two-year college in the nation to offer the associate degree nursing program and studies in electron microscopy; and in 1982, the college was the first community college to plan and co-sponsor with local chambers of commerce a business institute.

SUNY Orange has touched the lives of countless numbers of the county's 350,000 residents through its credit programs, non-credit programming and cultural events. As the needs of the community grow, the college will continue to play a significant role in the county's endeavor to face the challenges and to profit from the opportunities that await it.
