Student Life

Bring Your Curiosity, Find Your Community. 

Small enough that you won’t be able to walk across campus without seeing a friendly, familiar face. But also big enough that you couldn’t be bored if you tried. 

Just 20 miles north of Manhattan — in beautiful and tranquil New Rochelle — exists a tight-knit community with endless opportunities. 

Meet people and discover passions that bring out the best in you. Share the Gael spirit as you bring out the best in your peers too — across the hall, on the stage, in your favorite volunteering gig or out on the playing field.
