Seventy to graduate from MSC-Norwich on May 19

MORRISVILLE, N.Y.--Seventy Norwich Campus students will graduate during Morrisville State College’s 96th commencement ceremony May 19.

The ceremony will feature the first graduates who have completed their studies at the Norwich Campus’s new academic building, Roger W. Follett Hall, which opened in 2005.

Students will receive associate degrees in accounting, business, computer information systems, office administration, nursing, and general education/transfer programs.
