more than 100 degree programs, the University at Albany is frequently
the destination of many exceptional high school students. Not surprisingly,
the New York Times recently cited the University at Albany as
the second most popular choice for high school graduates in Westchester
In a survey of 27 high schools by the Westchester section of the Times,
it was found that last year, 129 students from the county attended Albany,
which is second only to Westchester County Community College.
The article listed various reasons for the University's popularity,
ranging from its affordability to its metropolitan location.
"Westchester County has some of the best public and private high schools
in the country and many outstanding graduates," said Harry Wood, director
of undergraduate admissions and recruitment at UAlbany. "We are fortunate
to attract the interest of enthusiastic students who are drawn to the
many highly regarded programs at Albany. Many of these students have
gone on to distinguish themselves here and in graduate schools and professional
UAlbany's School of Criminal Justice and Department of Public Administration
were among the top ten in the nation, according to the U.S. News
and World Report's annual rankings, "2002 America's Best Graduate
Schools guidebook." Criminal Justice was ranked #4 and Public Administration
