Broome Community College Students Welcomed By Clarkson University

POTSDAM, N.Y. -- Clarkson University recently welcomed a group of potential transfer students from Broome Community College in Binghamton. The students took a guided tour of the ALCOA plant in Massena and toured the Clarkson campus.

I love the school, said Greg Dilmore, a second-year chemical engineering student at Broome. "It has a great atmosphere to learn in. I noticed the emphasis on teamwork and involvement. Plus, there's hockey--you can't beat that. It's very well-rounded here."

I liked (Cheel) Arena, said Jacqueline Gonsalves, a 2nd-year engineering science major who was interested in transferring to Clarkson and wanted to see what the campus was like. "I haven't seen that many schools with their own arena. It was huge."

In order for the BCC students to get a more personal view of Clarkson, each visitor was paired up with a Clarkson student for the rest of the day and spent the night in the residence halls. The following morning, they sat down with counselors to discuss the possibilities of transferring here.

Tours such as these benefit both parties involved, according to Gerald F. Lambert, director of Transfer and International Admission at Clarkson.

It is our plan to have many two-year science and engineering programs visit our campus, Lambert said. "These are great students who have a history of being successful at Clarkson."

Clarkson University is an independent institution located in northern New York, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. The University has 2,745 graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in programs in its schools of Business, Engineering, Liberal Arts, and Science, and its Interdisciplinary Engineering and Management program.
