Purchase is a school that thinks "Wide Open". The school has a lot to offer by having four different Conservatories in the Arts and over twenty Liberal Arts degrees to choose from. The student life is extremely diverse here and there are a wide variety of clubs to join, i.e.. LGBTQu, LatinoUnidos, Cheese Club and many more. The Arts Conservatories are some of the best in the state and the facilities rank best among the country. The school is 30 minutes outside of Manhattan but has a ton of acreage to roam around on campus.

well, I'm a commuter and I didn't goQuite BrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
well, I'm a commuter and I didn't go to purchase to socialize, so I can't say much about that. I never realized Purchase was a "gay" school until I found this site. Though the entire campus is very liberal- professors included. Some of the people you see around campus are wanna be artist types, true- to be expected of an art school. The campus is ugly, but as a commuter- I don't care. It's mostly transfer students at Purchase, so it's transfer friendly. The best thing about the school for me is the art department- outstanding. As a psych minor- I thought the psych dept. was pretty good, too. I've has lots of great professors and inspiring ones. I guess most people at Purchase are not that friendly because everyone is busy being cool, but you're bound to find your niche if your arty. I would recommend this school to any commuter-I can't speak for living there. It's been a great experience for me.
