Nyack’s roots are in New York City. Our school was founded in Manhattan in 1882. With one campus in Nyack, NY and another in Manhattan, Nyack College serves the entire metro NYC area.
Most of our 3,100 students come from New York City’s five boroughs and the surrounding suburbs.
Our students and faculty reflect the diversity of the New York area: one-third of our students are African American, one-quarter Hispanic, one-third white and one-sixth Asian American. Our international students come from 60 different countries. Overall, our students belong to more than 80 different Christian denominations.
Nyack's graduates are successful because they receive a strong liberal arts education with a Christian foundation. Many of our 32,000 alumni work in New York area churches, counseling centers, social service agencies, health care facilities, schools, local government, businesses and corporations.
"The primary objective of The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is to help provide a broad range of services to the student, who because of academic and economic circumstances, would otherwise be unable to attend college, yet has the potential and desire to obtain a college degree. HEOP is sponsored jointly by the State Education Department and the College."
"HEOP is funded jointly by the University and the New York State Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program and programming activities are supported, in part, by a grant from the New York State Education Department."
