Spotlights Pattern

One College, Two Campuses

Having two distinct campuses allows us to provide an experience as diverse and engaging as our students.

Our two locations are just a short shuttle away from each other in the neighboring cities of Albany and Troy, New York. You’ll have the opportunity to learn, explore and connect on both campuses. This unique advantage provides an education with more depth, a community with greater perspective and a student life with more to enjoy.
