Enrolling in Summer Session classes at Suffolk allows college students to build on what they’ve been learning while advancing toward graduation.

Hotel and Resort Management Students Tour Hilton Headquarters
Students from Suffolk County Community College’s Hotel and Resort Management Program recently became the first college or university group to tour Hilton’s Innovation Gallery at Hilton’s Worldwide Headquarters in McLean, Virginia. The Innovation Gallery allows Hilton to present its new hotel brands, products, and cutting-edge vision to key constituents, inspiring them to think differently about hospitality and the future of the service industry. Following this visit, two Suffolk students were awarded internships — one at the Doubletree Hotel in Boston, MA and one at the Hilton Hotel in Seattle, WA. Suffolk’s Hotel and Resort Management Program is a vital part of the College’s overarching Culinary Arts and Hospitality Program that partners with many hotels and resorts to prepare students for rewarding careers within the industry.
Innovative “RN NextStep” Nursing Partnership with Farmingdale State College
Suffolk County Community College and Farmingdale State College have announced an exciting new joint admission program that will allow selected students who are accepted into Suffolk’s nursing program to be simultaneously accepted into Farmingdale’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program. Designed with an eye toward creating a pathway for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) to earn a baccalaureate degree, “RN NextStep” students will complete their first two years of study at Suffolk then directly matriculate into Farmingdale State College’s BSN degree. The program accepts students each spring semester and will allow aspiring nurses to affordably study – and potentially – stay right here in our region. Suffolk also has a similar partnership with Stony Brook University that starts nursing students during fall semesters through their NursingFirst joint admissions program.
