Vassar College

Poughkeepsie, New York

Phone: 1-845-437-7000 


Admissions Contact:  admissions@vassar.edu

Vassar is a highly selective, coeducational liberal arts college on 1,000 acres in New York’s historic Hudson Valley. Through over 1,000 courses, and more than fifty academic departments and programs, the curriculum emphasizes multidisciplinary approaches across the arts, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Vassar also has a long tradition of students and faculty working closely together, both inside and outside the classroom and laboratory, including joint research and co-authored publications.

Small classes, personal interaction with faculty — these are features that all the liberal arts colleges share. So what differentiates them? Each college has a distinct character that’s the product of its location and its history. Vassar is in Poughkeepsie, a small city on the east bank of the magnificent Hudson River, 75 miles north of New York City — quite possibly the best location in the world for a liberal arts college. As one student put it, “Vassar looks the way a college should look,” yet it’s an easy commute to one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
