We are considered the “cultural gem” of all the colleges that are part of the SUNY system or State University of New York.

Support services for Latinx, first generation, or other underrepresented populations.
The Purchase Success Network organizes and coordinates efforts on behalf of our students, particularly, but not exclusively, first-generation freshmen. The Purchase Success Network is a web of support services including: advising, monitoring, encouragement, and overall student advocacy. One of our goals is to make sure that students do not fall “between the cracks.” A free, three-day summer orientation program is also provided to assist the needs of this population. The Success Network also runs programs and events to support degree completion.
