In Addition
Research has shown that graduates of women's colleges earn more than the national average of all women with college degrees. They represent 33% of all Fortune 1000 corporate board members and 42% of all female members of Congress. And, they are more than twice as likely to receive doctoral degrees and enter medical school than women graduates of coeducational colleges. The more than 31,000 graduates of CNR, who have made their mark, however big or small, in virtually every field of endeavor, clearly attest to our success educating women for more than nine decades. Among them are: * Mary Donohue, Lieutenant Governor of New York * Mercedes Ruehl, Academy Award and Tony Award Winning Actress * Anne Sweeny, President, The Disney Channel and ABC Cable Networks * Aulana Peters, former Commissioner, United States Securities and Exchange Commission * Patricia Tracey, Rear Admiral, United States Navy.

The College Of New Rochelle   
29 Castle Place 
New Rochelle, New York 10805 

College Description 
Founded in 1904 as the first Catholic college for women in New York State, The College of New Rochelle provides an environment where young women participate more fully in and out of class, have more opportunities to take on leadership roles, build greater self-esteem, and are surrounded by excellent women role models. Our caring and dynamic faculty bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom, and with a faculty to student ratio of 11 to 1, our small classes allow students to receive individual attention. Because of the College's excellent location in a quiet residential neighborhood just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan and less than a mile from Long Island Sound, students may take advantage of the many professional internships at such sites as CBS, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the United Nations and just have fun visiting the Bronx Zoo, Yankee Stadium, and the Statue of Liberty.

Academic Life 
CNR offers more than 20 degree programs in the liberal arts and a number of professionally oriented fields, including art, business, education, nursing, psychology, and social work. Whether a student is clear about her major or still not sure, CNR provides a solid foundation on which to build. The Liberal Arts Core Curriculum exposes students to a broad spectrum of cultural achievements -- art, literature, language, mathematics, philosophy, religious studies, and the sciences -- and enables them to sharpen critical thinking and communication skills and to develop technological competence. Freshman year is a coherent experience extending throughout the year, during which students develop greater self-knowledge, while discovering the value of a liberal arts education for their own development and for their future career success. In addition, through our Internship, Study Abroad and Honors Programs, students complement their work in and outside the classroom and are better prepared for the job market after graduation.

Campus Life 
The wealth of campus activities at CNR helps students sharpen leadership and communication skills and have fun in the process. Over 25 clubs and organizations, including intercollegiate sports, a theater group, student government, the yearbook and student newspaper, and dances and special events provide opportunities to interact with fellow students and socialize with male students from other institutions. In addition, many students perform volunteer service in a variety of local community organizations. CNR offers four residence halls with all rooms wired to the College's network, enabling students to have their own e-mail address, access to the Internet, personal phone line, and cable television in their room, if they choose. Each residence hall is staffed with a Residence Director and Resident Assistants and has kitchen and laundry facilities and comfortable lounges. For safety, the entrance to each residence hall has a card-access lock system and is monitored by the Campus Security Office.

Facilities and Resources 
The College Center houses computer laboratories and classrooms; a computer graphics studio and desktop publishing work stations; photography laboratories; a television studio; art studios and exhibit space; a "model" classroom for student teachers; and the H.W. Taylor Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies. Gill Library now holds more than 220,000 volumes, an extensive periodical collection and provides access to the Internet. More than a dozen laboratories in Rogick Life Science Center and Science Hall include a research microscope room and plant/animal tissue culture room. The Learning Center for Nursing features a nursing skills laboratory with complete patient care units, medication areas, and special mannequins, models and simulators designed for realistic performance of many nursing skills; a computer center with computer interactive video systems and numerous software programs; and an audiovisual media resources center where students can reinforce classroom instruction. The Student Campus Center, housing a modern food service facility, student activity and meeting rooms and lounge areas, offers a place for students to come together to participate in extracurricular activities or just relax with friends.

CNR's Intercollegiate Athletics program is an integral part of the total education process. The College competes in the Hudson Valley Women's Athletic Conference and is a member of Division III of the NCAA and NYSWCCA. Sports teams include basketball, tennis, softball, volleyball and swimming.

Financial Aid 
CNR offers a full range of financial aid programs, including scholarships, grants, loans and employment opportunities. Scholarships, based on academic potential, range from $1,000 to full tuition. In addition, awards are offered to students who have been involved in community service and other school-related activities. CNR also offers an early financial aid service that will enable students to receive an estimate of the amount of financial aid they could receive from the College even before they apply.

Admission Requirements 
The admission process is a simple, straightforward one, designed to determine if you will be successful at CNR. A strong well-balanced program in high school is the best preparation for success in college studies. A minimum of 16 academic units should be taken. High school seniors interested in applying to CNR must submit a CNR application for admission, an official copy of their transcript, SAT I or ACT scores, and a recommendation. The College operates on a rolling admission system which usually allows a decision to be reached within two weeks of the completion of an applicant's admission folder. Students may also apply for an early decision on admission and financial aid. Applications must be received by November 1. Notification of acceptance will be sent by December 15. High school juniors who has completed 15 academic units and can submit evidence of strong academic ability are eligible for early admission after three years of high school. To be considered, they must submit SAT scores, if available, a recommendation from their guidance counselor and written approval from their parents. They must also have an admission interview.
