Underwater Wildlife New York

Keith Ellenbogen, the assistant professor of Photography,  has spent more than 500 hours capturing images of local marine life above and below the surface. Ellenbogen is an acclaimed underwater photographer who works in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society’s New York Aquarium, and now a new exhibition of his work, Underwater Wildlife New York,  is on view at Brooklyn Bridge Park through June 14.

The exhibition showcases the region’s most fascinating marine species through rarely seen underwater views of an astonishing variety of local marine species from Montauk, NY, to Cape May, NJ, and highlights the efforts of scientists to study and raise awareness of the conservation needs of local marine wildlife and their habitats.

The outdoor photographic display spanning 350 feet features nearly 50 images and takes viewers on a visual journey to reveal the extraordinary life hidden beneath the waves.

FIT Launches Programs at SUNY Korea

Campus of SUNY Korea

Fashion Designers and Fashion Business Managers:

FIT will become the second State University of New York (SUNY) institution to offer degree programs at SUNY Korea in Songdo as of August 2017. SUNY is the first American university in Korea and is also SUNY’s first global campus outside of the United States.

The FIT programs being offered in Korea are, you guessed it, Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management―two signature curricula of the college. These programs reflect the college’s commitment to providing industry-ready graduates for the fashion industry and its related businesses.

FIT’s location in Korea makes it the college’s third location abroad, along with Milan and Florence, and extends the institution’s global reach.

The application deadline is June 30 and, after that, admission is on a rolling basis. Admitted students will earn their AAS degree at FIT at SUNY Korea and may then apply to FIT’s bachelor’s degree programs in New York.

Make sure to take a look if you’re interested!
