Find your place.
Purchase College attracts all kinds of students: activists, makers, performers, entrepreneurs, researchers, storytellers, and explorers. Our students are exceptionally diverse, in every sense of that word. There is no “typical Purchase student.”
But some common principles unite us all. We value the things that differentiate us from each other. We look for underlying connections. We have a high tolerance for outrageous ideas.
Sound like you? If so, great. Let’s do this.
The 2020 edition of The Fiske Guide to Colleges selected Purchase based on its strength in academics, arts and culture, social life, financial aid, campus environment, extracurricular activities, and more.
The program is designed to attract students from a diverse range of undergraduate study programs.
US News and World Report ranked Purchase among the top ten in their annual Best Colleges list.
