Keuka College

Keuka College is an independent, liberal arts-based, four-year, residential, coeducational college that emphasizes experiential learning as well as career and pre-professional education. Founded in 1890, the school is located in Keuka Park, on the shores of Keuka Lake in the U.S. state of New York's Finger Lakes region. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies Keuka College under the "Master's Colleges and Universities (small)" category, noting its curricular engagement and outreach and partnerships.[1] Keuka is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.[2] The school offers both bachelor's and master's degrees on its home campus.

In addition, its Accelerated Studies for Adults Program (ASAP) offers degree completion at more than 20 sites throughout Upstate New York, as well as through online courses. The traditional student-faculty ratio is 14:1. The ratio of women to men is 3:1. Total enrollment of the college is 1,873. There are 921 ASAP, 1,546 full-time and 327 part-time students. Keuka College aims to provide an affordable, private liberal arts, sciences, and career education. As a result, over 93% of the full-time undergraduates at Keuka receive some form of need-based financial support, with the College awarding over 11 million dollars in aid each year.[3][4]

Since the early 2000s, Keuka has also become a major educational provider in the Pacific Rim, with more than 3,000 students pursuing Keuka degrees at partner universities in China and Vietnam.[5][6] Situated on picturesque Keuka Lake, picked by the Weather Channel as one of the best lakeside retreats,[7] Keuka College students, faculty and staff enjoy more than a thousand feet of shoreline, including Point Neamo, a private beach with a boat house and equipment for checkout. For additional recreational and artistic pursuits, Keuka students have access to the 34-acre Jephson Community Athletic Complex, the indoor sports facilities at the Weed Physical Arts Center, and the Aben and Lightner Art Galleries inside the Lightner Library.
