New Kaplan Hall facility making impact in community

SUNY Orange Opens Doors In Newburgh

Though functioning as a magnet for learning and academics since January 2011, SUNY Orange (Orange County Community College) recently officially opened its new Kaplan Hall facility in Newburgh.

The man for whom the 87,000-square-foot academic center is named, William Kaplan, says he’s confident it will “help turn around the lives of countless young students in our community.” And County Exec Ed Diana believes SUNY Orange’s commitment to making its college a centerpiece in the rebuilding of the city of Newburgh is “monumental.” (The community college’s main campus is in Middletown.)

“We will soon be able to accommodate double the amount of students that can be served in Newburgh, and are now able to offer full degrees, accredited programs and an outstanding nursing program,” Diana says.

Kaplan Hall’s third-floor nursing wing features two nursing simulation laboratories.
