“Green Then. Green Now.”

When Farmingdale State College was established as an agricultural institute in 1912—originally named the New York State School of Agriculture on Long Island—the surrounding area was a vast expanse of untamed pastures and unpaved roads. Today, Farmingdale has been transformed into an important resource for alternative energy innovation and a essential contributor to the region‘s development as a center of science and environmental research.

In fact, Farmingale is the largest college of applied science and technology in the State University of New York system. With its  pioneering sustainable efforts such as the Smart Energy House and Sustainable   Garden, the campus has literally embraced its roots while emerging as a leader in the exploration of eco-friendly power sources. 

It’s just one reason that at Farmingdale they say, “Green Then. Green Now.”
