Semester Study Abroad

Vassar College

Founded in 1861 in Poughkeepsie, New York, Vassar College is one of the United States’ top liberal arts colleges. Similar to other colleges of this caliber, Vassar maintains a strong dedication to undergraduate education with small class sizes and a vibrant student life for its diverse student body. Vassar is located in a stunning natural setting, set among idyllic, rolling hills, only a short drive from the Hudson River.
