Founded in 1904 by the Ursulines, the School of Arts & Sciences of The College of New Rochelle is located on a tranquil campus in the heart of New Rochelle, just 16 miles from midtown Manhattan. As a women's college, the School offers a challenging liberal arts curriculum, as well as several professional and pre-professional programs. Small class sizes allow students to work closely with talented faculty involved in cutting-edge research.
Among the ways SAS honors its Catholic heritage is through a curriculum emphasizing empowerment of the individual, self-reflection, and a commitment to social justice and service. The College creates a second home for its students, where faculty, administration, and peers recognize them by name. A walk around campus reveals beautiful grounds, historic buildings, and a state-of-the-art library--a perfect place for students to critically engage their world.
