Molloy College

Rockville Centre, NYhttps://www.molloy.edu
Long Island, N.Y., is home to a number of small liberal arts colleges, but Molloy, a Catholic school with about 3,500 undergrads, stands out as a particularly good value. It can't hurt that students get lots of attention -- the student-faculty ratio is among the lowest in MONEY's rankings. There are only two residence halls, with a third set to open, so many students also live at home with their parents, which brings down the cost of their education even further. While the large number of commuters limits the campus social scene, Molloy students are generally more focused on building practical career skills in health services, education, or business. Most seniors take part in a practicum, internship, or co-op before graduating. Molloy has clubs, too, including the Gaelic Society, Investment Club, and Love Your Melon Crew, which helps children battling cancer. Students describe the campus as small and safe, but you always have an easy escape: Manhattan is less than an hour away and the vibrant beach town of Long Beach is only a few train stops away.
