Our Campus

Our scenic campus is located in Purchase, about 30 miles from New York City, which gives students access to tons of internships and other opportunities. The campus was founded in 1841 and spans 100 acres. It was designed by famous architect Frederick Law Olmsted and features a beautiful quad, conveniently located class buildings, and many renovated facilities.
