What Students Are Saying

4.21 Average Rating
There is such an open and understanding atmosphere. Everyone takes academics very seriously, but I have never felt tension on campus as a result of that. It's not a place you will ever want to leave.

Vassar has challenging academics and a vibrant social atmosphere, and students here are very good at balancing both. Vassar advocates an environment of inclusion and social awareness that ensures every student is made to feel at home. Overall, Vassar is as much of an experience as it is an education.
