College of Mount Saint Vincent

If you dream of going to college on 70 pastoral acres overlooking the Hudson River, this school may be your reality. Though rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, this liberal arts college -- located in the Riverdale area of the Bronx -- is proud of the inclusiveness it has fostered since its founding in 1847 by the Sisters of Charity. With an average class size of about 20, the Mount provides an intimate educational setting for its 1,800 undergraduate and graduate students, who major in everything from Arabic, economics, and nursing to philosophy, studio art, and women's studies. The college's core curriculum requirement extends over four years, providing students with a grounding in literature, foreign languages, art, music, history, philosophy, religion, and sciences. Its average annual cost is about on par with the national median, and about 80% of students get federal loans. Student athletes will appreciate that the Mount offers 15 varsity sports for men and women as well as a new 7,500-square-foot fitness center. Does campus look familiar? That's because you may have seen it in an episode of "Law & Order."
