A short ride on Metro North brings me from Newburgh NY to the Big Apple. Mitchell has some great statistics on how many students there are in NYC going to the Universities and Colleges. I never realized how much of a college town it is. I was always under the impression that Boston has more, but New York City has quite a few students.. and a plan for more!
Lucky for Newburgh... New York City is only 60 miles away!
NYC has more undergraduate and graduate students than Boston has people."
New York City colleges and universities have become powerful magnets for talent and an excellent generator of new jobs.
Recently the City approved expansion plans for Columbia and Fordham campuses and the planned tech campus on Roosevelt Island by Cornell University.
Applications for admission are being accepted for the “beta” class of computer science students at Cornell NYC Tech, the new world-class applied sciences campus in New York City. This first class of full-time students will begin in January 2013, pursuing a one-year Cornell Master of Engineering degree in computer science. Applications for the small and highly selective beta class are due on October 1, 2012. The program will be housed at the temporary campus location in Chelsea, in space donated by Google. In 2017, the campus will move to its permanent home on Roosevelt Island. Information about the program and the application procedure for prospective students is available online at http://tech.cornell.edu/.
The latest approval is New York University’s 2031 development plan.
For the 20-year project, NYU will develop more than 1.9 million square feet which will provide necessary space for classrooms and other educational facilities, a new athletic facility, study areas, performance and theater spaces, faculty office and research space as well as student and faculty housing.
The project calls for open space enhancements, including making the Sasaki Garden accessible to the public, and early commitments to build public spaces on Bleecker Street and LaGuardia Place. Plans also include a commitment to convert a 6,000 square feet of existing space in Washington Square Village to accommodate a community use.
The University’s expansion will add to this economic impact by creating an estimated 18,200 construction job as well as 2,600 long-term employment opportunities.
NYU’s 2031 development plan is another example of enhancements made by universities to attract top-notch brainpower that in turn will benefit our great city.
The NYU plan allows for growth on its own property while maintaining the neighborhood character of Greenwich Village.
To all the new undergraduate and graduate students entering NYC, I wish you all great success.
