Under the steady guidance of Dr. Hubert Keen, Farmingdale State College continues to grow in structure and stature, garnering more admiration for its academic offerings, its “smart” classrooms and its verdant campus. The new $25 million Campus Center opened this year as part of a $185-million capital improvement project. Farmingdale College has consistently ranked as one of the best regional colleges in the north in U.S. News & World Report’s rankings, rising from No. 39 in 2012 to No. 31 this year. And when compared to only public colleges in this region, Farmingdale College scored impressively again in the top ten, coming in at No. 8. They also scored extremely well in regard to student loans, a subject that hits students hard. Farmingdale College was the only SUNY school (and the only Long Island college) listed in the “least” debt category in the section, “Student Debt Load at Graduation.” That accomplishment is another feather in Dr. Keen’s cap, as his school reached its 100th anniversary with plenty to celebrate.
