It’s the People and the Place

Often described as a bubble—in a good way—Purchase’s sense of community comes from the open-minded, collaborative, and supportive people drawn here. It also comes from the campus itself. The buildings lie clustered together in the middle of 500 protected acres of forest, fields, and wildlife.

It’s a campus built for pedestrian life—your walk to class is peaceful, surrounded by public art created by students and renowned artists alike. And you’ll meet peers, potential collaborators, faculty, and friends on the way.
