College of Saint Rose

Perhaps best known as the alma mater of Jimmy Fallon, host of NBCs legendary Tonight Show, The College of Saint Rose is a place that values creativity, treats each student as an individual, and empowers students to achieve their full potential. With a rigorous liberal education curriculum, a wide variety of academic programs, and a mission of service to the urban community, Saint Rose has the character of a private college with the opportunities of a large university - all in the heart of Albany, NY. This year Saint Rose has implemented a number of global initiatives including the building of the Center for International Programs. Undergraduate students are able to study abroad at the same cost of Saint Rose keeping all of their financial aid and scholarships. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 14:1, students are mentored by full-time faculty in their major. More than 93% of professors have the highest degrees in their field and engage in dynamic research with undergraduates. Accelerated dual degrees enable students to earn their bachelors/masters degrees in 5 years while retaining their UG college scholarships and grants. Students present their findings at the Colleges Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium and publish their work in the Colleges Journal of Undergraduate Research. Undergraduates co-author research papers in scholarly journals and present their findings at national conferences. Before the first week of classes, incoming freshmen choose from four early arrival immersion programs in the arts, social justice and service, or leadership skill-building. Beginning in the Fall of 2017, all first year students will participate in a leadership development program with the choice of five different leadership teams. Throughout their time at Saint Rose, students live out the Colleges mission through service both in the City of Albany and in alternative-break trips to Washington D.C, New Orleans, San Francisco Philadelphia and Guatemala. Nearly 76% of students who responded to a Career Center Survey complete semester-long internships/student-teaching or clinical practicums. Students are placed in multinational corporations, research hospitals, non-profit organizations, government agencies and school districts across the country and around the world. Many graduates are employed directly from their internship with employers preferring to hire Saint Rose graduates because they have the specific technical skills, the ability to write and analyze quickly, and a strong work ethic. Saint Rose ensures that students are job-ready and in the most recent Career Center survey, 96% of recent graduates said they were employed or pursuing masters or doctoral degrees, and 96% said that Saint Rose prepared them for entrance into law and medical schools as well as highly competitive masters and doctoral programs.
