Farmingdale is a great school. There are so many activities on campus and clubs to join. Farmingdale was the best decision I've made.
Rachael from Centereach, NY
Farmingdale State College is truly a safe and wonderful campus. This college has great student activities throughout each semester and the professors are very understanding of their students.
Kirshani from Farmingdale, NY
Farmingdale has become a renown SUNY institution- coming here was a last minute decision, but one of the best decisions I've made for my future. Farmingdale is doing an exceptional job at readying me for the future in my hopes of being a psychiatrist. Between the small class sizes to interact at a personal level with my professors, the great opportunities on campus to get involved and make your mark and to start new traditions and just learning about the real world has made Farmingdale a great place for me to continue my education and to ready me to go even further.
