OUR BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS
Our students enjoy a beautiful and peaceful setting for learning and exploration in suburban Westchester County, just 16 miles north of Manhattan. Located in the heart of New Rochelle, our tree-lined campus combines historic buildings like the iconic Leland Castle, and cutting-edge facilities such as our award-winning Wellness Center. Our proximity to New York City gives students access to the rich and varied intellectual, cultural, and professional opportunities it offers.
Our academic and extracurricular programs give students access to practical learning experiences in diverse environments – from internships with nearby companies and organizations including HBO, Human Rights Watch, JP Morgan Chase, and the United Nations to study-abroad opportunities in Europe, South America, Africa, and Asia. These transformative experiences instill the confidence, and knowledge students need to succeed not only in their first job, but over the course of their entire career.
