“Let’s increase Pell Grants and increase our historic support of HBCUs, and invest in what Jill—our First Lady who teaches full-time—calls America’s best-kept secret: community colleges.”
We’re thankful President Biden highlighted the importance of community colleges in his State of the Union last night. Community colleges make higher education accessible, helping people achieve their dreams regardless of their life circumstances.
As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever are reevaluating their life paths and looking to create their best future. With over 30 degree and certificate programs (including microcredentials), SUNY Adirondack provides the tools to turn those dreams into reality.

SUNY Adirondack in Queensbury, SUNY Adirondack Saratoga and the Culinary Arts Center in Glens Falls are closed Friday because of the predicted inclement weather.
Nineteen-year-old pilot Zara Rutherford touched down at an airfield in western Belgium on January 20, Thursday, becoming the youngest woman to fly solo around the world, as she closed the loop five months after taking off on her record-breaking journey.
Rutherford's circumnavigation aboard her Shark UL plane took 155 days – two months longer than planned, thanks to loads of bad weather and visa holdups. Along the way, she crossed enormous stretches of desolate ocean and had to spend weeks in a tiny Siberian village. She also had to alter course to avoid North Korean airspace and wildfires in California.
"It's just really crazy, I haven't quite processed it," she told reporters after landing in Kortrijk. "Basically my dream is that in the future, if a girl wants to go into aviation or wants to go engineering, it's not special," she said. "It's just like, 'oh, cool, like, just another person who's doing a cool thing with their life.' But it doesn't matter what gender they are."
Congratulations Zara, you are a true inspiration for girls and women everywhere!

Did you know that flower waste could be recycled into incense sticks? Ethical and natural, Phool, meaning ‘flower’ in Hindi, is a flowercycling project recognized by UNESCO Green Citizens. It was created by Ankit Agarwal to combat floral waste in the Ganges River in India.
Flowers used in rituals are considered sacred and cannot be thrown in the garbage, so many of them end up in the Ganges.
Ankit Agarwal thought about a way of giving a second life to sacred flowers while continuing to respect religious practices. Despite the reservations of his friends and family, he quit his job as an automation scientist, and managed to convince temples in Kanpur to give him their flower waste. How? By transforming floral waste into handmade incense sticks, which will be used again for religious worship. As such, he both respects religious practices and creates jobs for 200 marginalized women at the same time.
His goal? To expand Phool to other locations and give work to 2000 women. Help him achieve this by supporting his project on the website. 💚
