Some colleges are quite isolated, while others are located in such big cities that the experience can be overwhelming. Albany is a city that students from both rural and large metropolitan areas find “just right”—surrounded by plenty of outdoor areas including the Hudson Valley and the Adirondack and Catskill mountains. Students benefit from the excitement of a vibrant Capital City filled with thousands of college students as well as museums, shops, restaurants, and galleries. With a coffee shop, movie theater and plenty of pizza and sub places, the blocks surrounding the Saint Rose campus are full of things to do. The Capital Region is also becoming known as Tech Valley, with many firms locating in the Albany, NY area providing a diverse economic base when combined with all of the New York state agencies, law firms, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions.
