100 Years of Excellence

It is hard for me to believe that The College of Westchester will reach it's 100 year anniversary in 2015.  That means thousands and thousands of CW graduates have graced the halls of virtually every company and organization in Westchester County, Rockland, Manhattan, Putnam, Bronx and Orange Counties and surrounding areas.  Thousands of success stories, tens of thousands of families whose lives were made better by our graduates' choice to attend college, persist, work hard, graduate and find employment that changed their lives for the better in so many ways.  Check out this interesting advertisement from 1915 which was placed in the New Rochelle Pioneer on July 24, 1915, when CW first opened their doors:

Back in the day, we were called Westchester Commercial School, then Westchester Business School, then The Westchester Business Institute, and now The College of Westchester.  Though our programs of study have changed to adapt to what the local and regional business community needs, one thing remains the same - we prepare individuals for careers that really matter, that can help make them employable, better their professional earnings potential and enrich their lives....and we still have the greatest instructors and professors!!

Here are a couple of CW Scholar stories.

Happy Fall and Welcome to the new College of Westchester website and President's blog!

Hello and happy Autumn!  Another school year has begun.  Of course, that is a misnomer at CW as we have classes starting quite often all year round.  Because of our commitment to academic, student service and technological opportunities to meet our students where and when they attend classes, we offer a variety of online, hybrid, and classroom based courses. Visit our website and check it out!

Being involved with development of CW's online division in these past few years, it continues to be important to me and our CW team for students have an excellent and successful educational experience in each and every course they take.  Students give us feedback which we utilize to make the experience more intuitive and meaningful. 

Our academic advisors and success coaches, our faculty and staff are all on board to help our students become polished professionals, to graduate and move on to many other professional successes and a solid career path.

Next stop, graduation!  Enjoy some clips from our 2014 Commencement Ceremony last May.
