Colleges in New York

Here at Cappex, we heart NY, and we think you will, too. There are 261 colleges in New York, 83 public and 172 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. New York has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.


When it comes to colleges in the state of New York, there is definitely quite a bit of variety. One of the most important things to do before applying to schools is to think about the type of educational setting you want to be in for the next four years. For example, if you love math, science, or technology, if you're a computer geek or a future engineer, or if you just have a thing for the color orange, you should consider applying to the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Located in picturesque Rochester, far from the hustle and bustle of New York City, RIT provides a nurturing and cutting-edge educational experience in a beautiful New England setting. Andrew H., a freshman at RIT says of his New York experience, "New York is a great place to go to school. The diversity, people, and yes, even the weather, are all things that make it fantastic. The people here are all very nice, you can go out for a bike ride and almost everyone you see will say "Hi" to you. It makes it easy to make new friends and find a good group of people to hang out with."


On the other hand, if you're more of an arts, humanities, and sciences person, consider Vassar College, one of the nation's most prestigious liberal arts schools. Vassar is known for its open-minded and accepting environment, its breathtaking Hudson Valley campus, and its top-notch professors and classes. Notable alumni include actress Lisa Kudrow, who plays the role of the character Phoebe in the hit TV show Friends.


To truly take in all the city has to offer, consider a university in the heart of New York City. Ivy league member Columbia University and Fordham University are but 2 of dozens of universities with campuses or branches in NYC.


Other New York colleges include Cornell University in Ithica, St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, Syracuse University in Syracuse, University at Buffalo, and many, many more.
