Other universities promise to transform you. To mold you into something else —

something “better” — so that one day you’ll achieve success... however they define it. 
 

But not us.
 

Sure, the University at Albany is a premier public research university with incredible faculty

and a historic campus… but we know there’s also greatness in you, and it’s been there

all along. So our promise is a simple one: To help you be the best you. To get you

to see what we see — a blazing potential that’s ready to be unleashed.
