Dowling College Graduates Wonder If They’ll Ever Get Their Diplomas

How could the school’s president and board of trustees, all educated and accomplished professionals from across Long Island – have allowed things to get to this point? What were they doing while the college was racking up $54 million in long-term debt? On behalf of the 300-plus graduates who stood on that football field at Dowling’s Brookhaven campus on May 21, I implore the Board of Trustees to listen to their consciences and not let our lasting impression be that Dowling cheated us from what was rightfully ours. Only then will they gain a glimmer of redemption in this dark chapter of Long Island’s history of higher education.
