City College Named One of America’s Top Colleges

Forbes has named City College one of America's Top Colleges in the Northeast for 2014. One of only four New York State supported public institutions to make the top 100 list, City College is #92 in the Northeast and #215 overall.

Although highly reputed for its STEM education, students can select from majors as varied as childhood education, business, and the arts. Nine City College alumni are Nobel laureates, which is the most from any public college in the country. The college includes The Grove School of Engineering and the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, which are the only public institutions of those fields in New York City.

Through a unique five-year BS/MD program and 28-month Physician Assistant program, the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education aims to increase minority involvement in the medicine profession while helping medically neglected communities.  

Offering such a diverse student body along with opportunities to achieve academically, creatively, and professionally, while at the same time bearing minimal tuition burden; is what makes City College unique.
