SUNY Delhi makes sure students are armed with everything they need when they graduate. The curriculum is frequently re-evaluated based on what is happening in the industry. As a member of the department’s advisory council, I help inform the faculty about new and cutting-edge developments so that they can be incorporated into teaching. The faculty are also directly involved in the business world outside of teaching, and bring those real-life experiences into the classroom. The professors encourage students to do internships, which proved to be a really beneficial experience for me personally. It’s such a great environment – I still get re-energized every time I visit the campus.”
