I Feel Close to the Faculty and Have Gained so Much From Them

"What I enjoy most about the Marketing Program at Plattsburgh State is the faculty, which I have always felt very close to and have been able to gain so much knowledge from. One of my favorite group activities is the Marketing Club, which is very active! I have made so many amazing friends through the program while gaining professional experience at the same time. The entire marketing program is a strong one, in my opinion, because the classes touch on projects that involve working with real businesses around the community."

An Internship and Travel with the Marketing Club Make the Program Exciting

"The Marketing Program at Plattsburgh State has been both fun and exciting for me. Some of the highlights of the past year have been a great internship experience with Graymont Materials as well as the chance to travel to New Orleans with the Marketing Club to attend the 27th Annual International Collegiate AMA Conference."

Mr. Stephen Smith, Senior

Stephen Smith is from South Setauket, New York, and transferred to Plattsburgh State from SUNY Oneonta.

I Like the Small Classes with Friendly Faculty and a Hands-On Approach

"I came here because one of my friends told me about the Marketing Program. Most of the professors in Marketing and the School of Business and Economics are friendly, excellent teachers, and they take a hands-on approach in their courses.

I like the fact that there are not 600 people in a class, but rather only 25 or 30 students in my business courses. Plattsburgh is a perfect setting in the Adirondacks for a college. I find time here to be able to handle my studies, my job, and my social life.

After I graduate, I'm looking forward to doing a master's degree in sports marketing. My goal is to work in the sports marketing department for ABC Sports!"
