fiske logoPurchase College, SUNY is proud to appear in the 2015 Fiske Guide to Colleges, which considers many qualities when selecting schools for inclusion, such as academic ratings, price category, and quality of student life on campus.

According to the guide, Purchase College is “…a perfect place to study the arts and still be able to indulge in academics of all kinds, or vice versa….Purchase offers the opportunity for a personalized, diverse education unique within the SUNY system.”

A literature major quoted in the publication says, “There’s a raw energy that exists on campus—in the students and professors—that I don’t think many other colleges have.”

Another student adds, “The professors are engaged, extremely qualified, and very interested in our education.”

The 2015 Fiske Guide to Colleges will be released July 5.
