We can be proud of SUNY


In our area, SUNY Cobleskill and SUNY Delhi have also received national recognition for providing a high-quality education while keeping costs down to a minimum.

This is, of course, important. The Sallie Mae “How America Pays for College” study released Tuesday reported that almost 70 percent of families wouldn’t consider some colleges because of their cost, compared with 58 percent who did that only five years ago.

In 2008, half of the families reached by the survey said they used scholarships and grants to pay for college. This year, that number went up to two-thirds of all students.

If Gov. Dewey could see the value-for-money of a SUNY education today, it would make him proud. Local students and parents should be proud of it, too.
