I did one year of college at Nyack. I did not go to Nyack for the academics. I went more for the community and people. I met some of the most kind-hearted, intentional people at Nyack that truly care about you in every way possible. The academics were ok. They got the job done, I learned some things, but it wasn't anything amazing. The communication from admin to students was quite literally the worst, but of all the admin, Dean Velez was one of the most amazing women that I have met. If you have the chance to get to know her, do it! Overall, not a bad school. The professor are incredible and the students are awesome. If you are looking for a school that values your emotional health and cares about the relationships during your time as a student, then this school is the one for you. Also, if you want to go into ministry, this is a fantastic school, it just wasn't what I was looking for.

I currently hold a B.S. in Organizational Management from Nyack College. As a military veteran, I appreciated the Adult Education programs. I received high job offers over the years and the degree has been worthwhile. I would recommend this college to anyone. The faculty members were willing to assist and friendly. After Nyack College graduation, I then moved on and graduated with an MBA. Currently, I work as a Program Analyst in Washington DC Metro Area and am very happy with my career opportunities.
My daughter completed her first year of college at Nyack and although the overall experience was good, we found out in mid October of last year that they were shutting down the Nyack campus and if she wished to continue going to Nyack she would have to transfer to the Manhattan campus. I understand that these things can happen but I also know that the college knew this was at least a distinct possibility when we signed up to over the summer and I believe they did not tell anyone because they were afraid they would lose some of the new students and with that the tuition money.

We did not want an urban setting for here college experience and chose Nyack over some other colleges primarily because we liked the Nyack campus. I wish Nyack would have been upfront with the parents and students who were in the process so we could have weighed the options and made an informed decision at the time.
