When I was in high school, my mom attended SUNY Empire State College, obtaining a degree in social sciences. When I was a young adult, my dad was a civil engineer for the entire SUNY system working his final job with the university its construction fund out of the SUNY Empire State College facilities in Saratoga.

Now, one of my baby brothers who was accepted into every university to which he applied, has decided instead to follow in the footsteps of our parents and attend SUNY Empire State College to obtain his bachelor's degree in business administration.

SUNY Empire State College and SUNY Broome Community College have joined forces and SUNY Empire State College now has an office inside SUNY Broome's Business Building in Binghamton. The collaboration formalizes new transfer agreements which will enable SUNY Broome County College students who have an associate degree in select programs to transfer into a bachelor's program through SUNY Empire State College.

Quite a large number of SUNY Broome Community College students end up transferring to SUNY Empire State College after they graduate with their associate degree so creating a space on the SUNY Broome Community College campus for SUNY Empire State College only makes sense.

The new SUNY Empire State College space will offer guidance and resources for SUNY Broome Community College students who are looking to transfer to SUNY Empire State College.
