As an alternative to high school for young men interested in agriculture, the State Agricultural and Technology College at Cobleskill opened the doors of its only building to a class of 10 in 1916. It was an experiment at the time, although now it would be part of New York's BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) system. Evolving over the years, it was first a postsecondary institute for men and women interested in agriculture, home economics, and teacher training; then it became a junior college offering a multitude of degrees, including not only those listed above but also business and liberal arts; and now, 100 years later, it is a comprehensive college offering baccalaureate as well as associate degrees. Today, the campus covers over 900 acres with 70 buildings.

SUNY Cobleskill alumni have been active since the college's first graduating class in 1918, when it was still known as the Schoharie State School of Agriculture. In the 1960s, an organizational structure began to emerge, and in 1975, the alumni association of the State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology, Inc., was established. SUNY Cobleskill has graduates across the country and across the globe. The alumni association has worked hard to remain connected to its members in the last century and will continue its efforts into the next 100 years.
