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.
Time: All DayFreshmen residents must be registered for 12 or more credits by July 1, 2018 to maintain their housing assignment.
Purchase College, which has a long tradition of encouraging student activism, reaffirms its commitment to supporting peaceful protest. Whether applicants or accepted students have been working to bring about social, racial, economic, or environmental justice, Purchase College values their voices.
While many schools and colleges have threatened suspension for participation in demonstrations of peaceful protest, Purchase College will not rescind acceptances or look unfavorably at these disciplinary actions in the admissions process.
