The State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill is an accredited, baccalaureate, residential college with a rich academic tradition spanning more than 100 years. With an emphasis on experiential education, SUNY Cobleskill prepares students for successful careers, advanced studies, and engaged citizenship. Our founding principle that students “learn by doing” was formalized in 2016 with the SUNY system’s first applied learning requirement, guaranteeing that every student graduates with real-world experience in their field of study.
Students live and learn on a modern, 902-acre campus that features outstanding educational facilities, including:
The new Center for Environmental Science and Technology and the $38.7-million Center for Agricultural and Natural Resources provide students with state-of-the-art facilities to pursue study and research opportunities in Environmental and Energy Technology, Plant Sciences, Fisheries & Wildlife, and Animal Sciences.
The academic experience at SUNY Cobleskill is complemented by countless opportunities for students to challenge themselves inside and outside the classroom. Campus-wide events, more than 50 student clubs, and residence hall councils are just a few examples of potential leadership positions. Students can also participate in a full array of intramural and intercollegiate athletics on 20 Fighting Tigers sports teams.

Points of Pride
SUNY Cobleskill is a proud home to “Survivor Trees,” gracing the entrance of our campus at Route 7 and Schoharie Parkway. These trees were propagated from a lone surviving tree at Ground Zero in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. Originally a gift from John Bowne High School in Flushing, Queens, today these trees grow as a symbolic reminder of the tragedy of 9/11, and deeply-rooted pillars of our commitment to sustainability and resilience.
