St. Joseph's College-New York

St. Joseph's College is a private liberal arts school with campuses in Brooklyn and on Long Island. The college's education degrees are popular, particularly a program for special education teachers. And its Dillon Child Study Center, created in 1934, was one of the first teaching labs for preschools on the East Coast. The college offers more than 50 majors to its roughly 4,000 undergraduates. Students say their instructors appear to take classes seriously, which aligns with the student-faculty ratio of 11:1. St. Joseph's graduation rate is 71%, which is an impressive 45% higher than schools that serve similar populations, according to MONEY's analysis. The Brooklyn campus is a short walk away from many cultural attractions, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Brooklyn Museum of Art, and it's a 20-minute subway trip into Manhattan. The Bears participate in basketball, soccer, and tennis, among other sports. During Halloween, Dillon children can be seen trick-or-treating around campus.
