What is the best thing about SUNY Empire?:
The best aspect of SUNY Empire? Trick question! There are many “bests:” from affordability, personalized service, mentors, support staff and services that go above and beyond, to programs designed for those who have prior learning and transfer credit, flexible class options and online/distance accessibility. Perhaps at the very top of the best list- are the people of SUNY Empire. Phenomenal individuals who work tirelessly on your behalf, at ESC, YOU are important, valuable, and not just a number, a statistic or contributing to the bottom line. They are there for YOU to empower and facilitate you to realize your academic goals and succeed in your quest to complete your degree. Stop in to any SUNY Empire office and see for yourself!
