WHAT I LIKED

Great community located right on the Hudson River. Beautiful campus with lots of ways to get involved. I met many enthusiastic professors that have now become mentors, and I have made friends that will last me for the rest of my life.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The art department is up and coming. The staff and resources are slightly limited but are growing with each year. If you are applying to an arts program, particularly art history, this is something to keep in mind. However, the Communication department is enthusiastic and reputable.
