New York Colleges and Universities

Colleges and Universities in New York

New York residents know about the fine dining and fast culture available in New York City, but they also enjoy the state's hidden hot spots, wine country, and unique regional areas like Long Island or the Finger Lakes. Never a state synonymous with "boring," New York is replete with festivals, such as Brazilian Day in New York City and the four-day Grassroots Festival in Trumansburg. Educational opportunities within the state are as varied as the people themselves. At Cornell University in Ithaca, you can pursue programs in fields such as agriculture and the life sciences, engineering, hotel administration and more. Other educational institutions, like Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx or the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan, can give you the training needed for a specific career. In New York, you can also study the arts, music, theology or technology or find a school to pursue the kind of vocational training you need.
