This new university, the 65th campus within the SUNY system, will be an educational sea vessel.
Students will gain professional experience:
At SUNY Deep Blue, applied learning opportunities will be available for all students. Enrolled students will be able to be a part of the ship’s operations centers, from engine maintenance to culinary work, as a way to get the most out of their education and bridge the gap from college to career.
And the vessel, and its students, will travel:
A Study Abroad opportunity is available to all students. Every week, the ship docks at a different location allowing for maximum cultural exposure. Long Island, Lake Ontario, Albany, Niagara Falls, and even the occasional excursion overseas, every day will simply be an adventure at SUNY Deep Blue.
