SUNY Canton's Smashing Success
SUNY Canton is growing in nearly every way imaginable. Record breaking enrollment, new facilities, innovative international programs, and new career-oriented bachelor's degrees are just a few examples of how the college is experiencing remarkable success.
Record Numbers - Again
The College set a new enrollment record for the second consecutive year with more than 3,300 students enrolled in the Fall Semester, a ten percent growth from the previous record set just the year before. Enrollment numbers have grown remarkably the past several years. When President Joseph L. Kennedy came to the college in the early '90's, SUNY Canton's enrollment was slightly more than 2,000. It has since grown more than 100 percent. 'We're excited to experience back-to-back years of record setting enrollment,' said Kennedy. 'Prospective students and community members are continuing to recognize the excellent academic programs we offer, the affordable cost of tuition, and the flexibility of our class scheduling and online courses.'
Roos House Rising Up
Construction the new Roos House, otherwise known as the Convocation, Athletic, and Recreation Center, is progressing extremely well. Northland Associates of Syracuse reports the project is advancing well ahead of schedule.
The soon-to-be newest building on campus includes an ice rink, a swimming pool, a new fitness center, a basketball court, plenty of student space, athletic offices, and much more. The sense of pride and anticipation is palpable across campus eagerly awaiting a building that will literally change the personality of the college.

More Programs and International Innovation
The college continues to create new in-demand majors such as the recently approved four-year Nursing degree, Graphic and Multimedia Design, and the pending Sports Management program. SUNY Canton now offers nearly 20 bachelor's degree options.
Several hundred international students are enrolled through SUNY Canton OnLine this year. Over the summer, approximately 100 students from Bosnia, Russia, and China travelled to Canton to live on campus and enjoy the experience of upstate New York.
The Power of Four
SUNY Canton recently added to its renowned flexibility and convenience by switching to a four-day academic schedule instead of the traditional five-day class week. 'We originally began considering a four-day academic schedule as a way for our students and faculty to save money when gas prices were over $4 a gallon,' President Joseph L. Kennedy said. 'The state budget situation and current economic climate have now made this move even more sensible. It will assist in reducing operating costs for the college and personal costs for students. As an added bonus, it has given students added flexibility with part-time and even full-time jobs while they are attending school.' Kennedy pointed out that the extraordinary popularity of SUNY Canton OnLine (also known as SUNY Canton OL) helped him decide that this was a feasible alternative to the academic schedule. Each semester more than 1,000 students choose to take one of the college's more than 100 online courses.
