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. Apply to Purchase.
