At SUNY Broome, we work with students to foster their growth not just academically, but emotionally, culturally, ethically, socially, psychologically, and spiritually. Knowing that living on campus is an integral part of the student’s overall collegiate experience we have carefully developed a program that allows for the students’ educational and personal development.
In doing so, we ask that each student takes responsibility for their own experience. We serve as guides and advocates while they experience collegiate life on their own terms. Living in a community goes beyond the neighborhood and is now a global endeavor. Students will be exposed to various cultures while living on campus and it is expected that each student develops an appreciation for the differences amongst one another.
Lastly, we expect that all students take advantage of the wide variety of opportunities afforded to them while they are a student at SUNY Broome. There are many cultural, social, academic, and developmental activities available, all organized to assist every student grow academically and globally.

Cooking Safety Tips
- Keep clothing and hair away from open flames and heating Appliances. Avoid wearing long or loose fitting clothing and tie long hair back.
- Use oven mitts or hot pads when handling heated items.
- Keep pot handles turned toward the center of the stove to avoid accidently knocking the pot off the stove.
- Keep pot lids handy in case you have to smother a fire.
- Know where the fire extinguisher is (under the sink- neatly labeled).
- Watch what you heat! Don’t get caught up tweeting, snapping, Facebooking, Instagramming, or doing homework.
- Use caution with electrical appliances. Plug them directly into a wall outlet. DO NOT use extension cords or multi-plug adapters.
- Replace appliances with frayed or cracker cords or exposed wires.
- Keep stoves, ovens, microwaves, and other appliances clean and ready for use.
- Wipe up any spills when they happen – grease and spills often cause the smoke detector to go off.
- Turn on the vent fan while cooking. If it is not working correctly, submit a work order.
- Keep hot surfaces and the area near your cooking free from things that can melt or catch fire.
- Always read the directions provided on the label.
- Don’t just crank up the heat – most cookware you use is thin and heats up fast, which can cause food to burn or smoke.
