College Catalog Fall 2004 - Spring 2006
Special Features

SUNY Delhi's modern, 625-acre campus is comprised of 44 specialized buildings. Many house unique academic programs and highly specialized laboratories. Some deserve special note.

The Veterinary Science Technology program was the first of its type in the United States, and the College continues to be the preeminent program in the nation. The program features instruction in Farnsworth Hall, a highly sophisticated facility that includes a surgical suite, radiography laboratory, and on-site primate colony. A vivarium at the Valley Campus provides students with experience working with live animals, including some exotic species.

Delhi has been producing hospitality industry leaders for over 40 years and now offers the most comprehensive menu of associate's and bachelor's degree programs in New York State. The College's Alumni Hall Hospitality Center is a major program asset. This facility features model guest suites, a beverage laboratory, kitchen and dining facilities for a student-operated restaurant, a catering kitchen, and multi-purpose conference rooms and dining areas. The College's culinary team has earned the reputation as the Northeast's best, capturing the American Culinary Federation's New York State and Northeast region hot food titles. In addition, the 2003 team brought home a national gold medal.

The College's baccalaureate and associate degree programs in Golf Course Management are unique. The College's close alliance with the golf industry makes the College uniquely qualified to offer these training programs for superintendents, assistants, and aspiring golf professionals.

Extensive facilities support the Golf Course Management programs, including an 18-hole golf course. Students get extensive "hands-on" experience maintaining this unique facility, as well as in operating the pro shop and restaurant. The College also owns the John Lennox Demonstration Forest, a managed plantation and instructional laboratory that includes 185 acres and 20 compartments of varying acreage. This is one of the oldest plantations in New York State and cannot be duplicated anywhere in the Catskill region.

Students in Delhi's building programs get on-the-job experience constructing residential homes. Students have also received commercial building experience by participating in the construction of a laboratory complex for applied technologies programs at the College, building a new Turf Management Center, and building a new clubhouse at the College golf course.

SUNY Delhi has made a significant investment in technology for students. The Technology Center, open 100 hours a week, offers students affordable computer access and technical assistance. With approximately 300 computer workstations, Internet connections, and specialized hardware and software, the Tech Center is one of the reasons SUNY Delhi was named one of the most wired colleges in the United States by Yahoo Internet Life. Wireless computer access on the campus is growing as well, with students having wireless access in all residence halls, the Resnick Library, and lounge areas in academic buildings.

SUNY Delhi also offers specialized courses designed to help students meet various educational and career goals. For example, Delhi is one of an elite group of colleges selected to offer Leadership Development, a three-credit course created by Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year college students. The course is part of an expanding Honors Program for exceptional students. Student Success and Freshman Seminar courses are also available.
