“We need to have a discussion at the national level about college affordability,” Stefanik said. “Fortunately, we have some great institutions in Northern New York that are cost effective, and SUNY Canton is one of them.”

Her visit included a discussion with students who are enrolled in the college’s Early Childhood program, as well as a tour of the program’s lab facility. Stefanik asked students about their career goals and noted the importance of job creation in the North Country to allow graduates who want to stay in the area the opportunity to do so.
