We have partnerships with Columbia and Dartmouth in engineering, SUNY Upstate Medical School’s PhD and MD programs, and Oxford for study abroad. Our students are curious, bright, mature, independent. They want to be challenged, they want to dig deep, and they want to ask big questions. They want to be treated seriously as learners and want to be with other students who are eager to learn.
