The oldest community college in New Jersey, Union County College, has been in existence since 1933. The College has been providing the path to success for students by preserving their promise to education by supporting a strong liberal arts base in addition to an ongoing commitment to new programs. Union County College opened its new biology labs in January of 2015 in the Sidney F. Lessner building located on the Elizabeth, NJ campus.
Sullivan County Community College located in the beautiful Catskill Mountains on a 405 acre campus is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system. The campus is located less than two hours from New York City and boasts nine interconnected buildings as well as the Paul Gerry Fieldhouse. The college offers over 40 associate degree and certificate programs and last year had over 1,600 students. The college recently underwent a renovation of their chemistry lab and chose Sheldon Laboratory Systems products for the project. These upgrades were purchased off the Middlesex Regional Educational Services Commission (MRESC) contract.
