Learning Resource Center Unveiled in Brentwood
This past fall, Suffolk County Community College opened its new $30 million, nearly 75,000-square-foot Learning Resource Center (LRC) on the Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood. It includes a lecture hall, computer classrooms, writing and reading centers, tutoring rooms, glass-enclosed group study rooms, an outdoor roof garden and a green roof with vegetation. “The new Learning Resource Center will serve as a powerful symbol of the value that the College and its students bring to the vitality of our shared community,” says Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.
Success Doesn’t Stop for Summer
Summer Sessions at Suffolk allow college students to build on what they’ve been learning while moving towards the fast-track to graduation. Studies even show that students who take classes year-round are three times more likely to graduate. High school students can also get a jump start by taking summer classes at Suffolk before starting college. Suffolk’s credits transfer to SUNY schools, as well as many private four-year colleges and universities.
