Freshman Admissions

Join Keuka College After High School

Why Keuka College?

We're small. Private. Affordable. And located on the shores of one of the world's most spectacular freshwater lakes.

At Keuka College, you'll have the chance to work one-on-one with extraordinary professors. You'll work with faculty to design an internship every year, starting your freshman year. You'll not only learn to master tech tools and digital devices, but to understand how they work and how they'll impact the future of your field—and the future of life on earth. You'll have plenty of opportunities to become a leader, lend a hand to those in need, and live day-to-day life in one of New York's top travel spots. Here, it's not about keeping up. It's about pushing forward.

Our small campus is a community of people who genuinely care about you. Who want to see you succeed. Who will give you every tool, opportunity, and bit of knowledge you'll need to excel in your career and as a citizen of the world.

We believe in the power of teamwork. We celebrate the flavors of diversity and individuality. We empower each other to solve complex problems. We're respectful of our differences, and supportive of each other's failures. In the end, we know greatness is achieved only when people come together to address the challenges of the age.

Yes—we'll prepare you for an outstanding career. But we'll also help you find yourself. We'll help you unlock the potential that you can feel burning inside you. Prepare you for an extraordinary life full of enormous opportunities and endless possibilities. At Keuka College, we Believe in What We Can Do Together. And we can't wait for you to join us.
