A colorful and informative introduction to the wealth of educational opportunities available at The City University of New York is now being offered in a new University-wide career and college guide entitled “Study With The Best.”
“Study With The Best” provides an overview of the high quality and expertise of the faculty, the excellence and reputation of academic programs, the successes of students and alumni, and new facilities and technology available to students. The guide explains how graduates are recruited for top jobs in private industry and public service. The guide also provides information on special services and programs, tuition assistance and scholarships such as The New York City Merit Scholarship, a cash award of $1,450 per year to high school graduates who have completed 12 academic credits and have maintained at least a B average.
“High quality of scholarship is a CUNY tradition, a formula for success since 1847. CUNY alumni include eleven Nobel Prize winners, distinguished teachers, business leaders, scholars, judges, editors, composers, singers, actors, elected officials and leaders in every field,” according to the guide’s introduction. “Today’s CUNY students are continuing the tradition of success. They win scholarships, fellowships, and entry into top graduate schools, including our own Graduate Center. They’re recruited by the largest corporations, local dotcom start-ups, community agencies and other colleges and schools.”
Students who access “Study With the Best” at www.cuny.edu/best can apply for admission to the University online and obtain additional information on academic course offerings. The site features direct links to the websites of CUNY’s senior colleges, community colleges, the Graduate Center, the CUNY law school and the CUNY Medical School.
Printed copies of “Study With The Best” are available by calling toll-free 1-866-CUNY-YES or visiting the CUNY admissions offices at 1114 Avenue of the Americas at 42nd Street, known as the Grace Building situated across from the main New York Public Library. The Grace Building is served by all major New York City Transit subway lines. Metro North and the Long Island Rail Road terminals are nearby.
