The College of New Rochelle Top Questions

What is your overall opinion of this school?


The College of New Rochelle is a small, private, Catholic college that only admits women to their School of Arts and Sciences. CNR is a pretty small school that the majority of people outside of Westchester County are not familiar with. I spend a lot of time in my room, but there are plenty of opportunities to be social and hang out if you are so inclined. New Rochelle as a town is pretty walkable, and there are two other colleges in the area that are prone to inviting the other colleges to events. Student complaints generally revolve around the administration's inflexibility on school policy, and the School of Nursing faculty's lack of compassion for students. There was also recently a bit of a controversy when some students tried to get an LGBTQA group started on campus called "Spectrum." The effort went south when the office of Student Services claimed that "as a Catholic institution CNR could not be 'accepting' of 'the gay lifestyle.'"
