About The College of Saint Rose

We’re a college that values students for who they are. We believe that when everyone feels comfortable enough to be their true selves, it makes our community stronger and brings their unique gifts to whatever field they choose. Yes, you’ll be transformed as a Saint Rose student by what you learn here, but you’ll also transform the world around you and make a positive impact.

We ask students to work hard in the classroom and use what they learn to advocate for themselves and for others – no matter what field they’re in. We call it “service to the dear neighbor,” and it goes back to 1920 when our founders started the college in a city neighborhood so Saint Rose grads could make a difference in people’s everyday lives. They still do.

The College of Saint Rose is a private, nonprofit school in the city of Albany, New York. The College of Saint Rose was founded in 1920. The college currently enrolls around 3,314 students a year, including 1,798 undergraduates.
