Many levels of excellent education

From Manhattan to Buffalo, Rochester to Albany, the state is home to an array of excellent schools that offer courses of study in just about every subject you can imagine.

The New York Metropolitan Area alone boasts more than 200 public and private colleges and universities. These schools attract the world's best and brightest aspiring bankers, chefs, artists, business people and world leaders. Outside of the city, the gorgeous Upstate and Western regions are also magnets for students who want to major in everything from political science, to biomedical engineering to creative writing.

New York is the only state that's home to more than one Ivy League school. Columbia and Cornell Universities give it some serious bragging rights. With more than 60 community colleges, technical schools, and the colleges and universities in the state public university system--called SUNY--there are ample academic opportunities for students of all backgrounds, abilities and interests.

Some of the world's top schools are here, including prestigious arts schools like Juilliard and the Art Institute of New York City; business schools like NYU's Stern School and Fordham Graduate School of Business; and world-class cooking schools including the Culinary Institute of America, the French Culinary Institute, and the Italian Culinary Academy. Top trade schools in New York include ITT Technical Institute, the Everest Institute and Sanford-Brown Institute. There are also plenty of trade-specific schools that focus on disciplines, such as massage therapy or health care technical and administrative services.

Things to do when you're not hitting the books

As a student in the Manhattan area, you'll have access to some of the world's finest theater, arts, food, sports, nightlife and culture. Take a break from cracking the books to hit world-class museums, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim or the Museum of Television and Radio. Stroll around fabled Central Park; catch a Yankees, Mets, Knicks or Rangers game; or just enjoy the weird and wonderful clashing atmospheres of the Big Apple.

Smaller, but still vibrant metropolitan areas, like Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo and the capital city Albany also have plenty to offer culture vultures and sports fanatics, including top professional and NCAA sports teams, and flagship restaurants for classic American foods--here you'll find the original Buffalo wings. Cap it all off with award-winning wine regions, gorgeous rural scenery and countless acres of state and national parks. The question is how could you not want to go to school in New York?
