CampusEdit

SUNY Sullivan is situated on 405 acres (1.64 km2) of land and its campus features nine interconnected buildings plus the Paul Gerry Fieldhouse, the Lazarus I. Levine Residence Hall, and the EcoGreen Townhouses. A geothermal system provides heat and air conditioning for the campus. Sustainability is an important part of SUNY Sullivan's mission, and is reflected across campus via an organic farm in partnership with New Hope Community, a composting program, community gardens, a nine-acre solar field, and an apiary.

AthleticsEdit

The college's 12 intercollegiate sports teams compete in Division II (Varsity and JV teams) and Division III in the NJCAA. The school mascot is General Dunker, and its teams are known as The Generals. Sullivan Generals sports teams include: men's and women's basketball (Division II), baseball (Division II), women's volleyball (Division III), men's and women's cross country (Division III), men's and women's track & field (Division III), men's and women's golf (Division III), men's wrestling (Division III), and co-ed cheerleading (Division III). Intramural activities are ongoing throughout the year. The Sullivan Generals men's basketball team won three Division III National Championships in the 1990s, and won the 2007 Division III Championship with a 32-0 record. The college was the home of the NJCAA Division III Men's Basketball National Tournament through 2016.
