19358328711_cb72f44094_oCollege-bound students and their parents are always looking for an academic environment that offers the best fit for the student and the best value for their tuition dollars. That is why Molloy’s latest honor, being ranked the “# 1 Value All-Star” in the nation by Money® magazine, is so rewarding. The recognition comes as part of Money’s annual college rankings, which acknowledge the best of the country’s institutions of higher education in a multitude of categories. Molloy’s top ranking was based on a variety of factors, including graduation rates and earnings of graduates. This category was designed to “determine which schools actually add the most value,” according to the magazine.
Molloy, one of the most affordable private colleges on Long Island, is an independent Catholic college located in Rockville Centre. Molloy was founded in 1955 by the Sisters of Saint Dominic in Amityville, NY. Molloy provides its 4,800 undergraduate and graduate students with a variety of high-quality academic programs including the liberal arts, social and natu¬ral sciences, nursing, business, education, social work, new media, speech therapy, music therapy, theatre arts, criminal justice and many more.
Molloy continues to evolve to meet the needs of its students, adding academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels. In recent years, Molloy added three doctoral programs (in nursing and education) and new master’s programs in clinical mental health counseling and speech-language pathology/audiology, as well as a new media major and a four-year degree in nuclear medicine technology. The College also offers flexible learning options for a number of programs, so that students can take night, weekend or online classes.
Molloy creates a challenging and nurturing environment for its students. In addition to its 50-plus academic programs, approximately 60 clubs and honor societies, a competitive honors program, various service and intern opportunities, and NCAA Division II athletics, there are abundant opportunities for each student not only to strive for academic excellence but also to explore new interests and enrich our community. Student surveys regularly earn Molloy recognition in both The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report listings of outstanding colleges and universities. Those rankings referenced Molloy’s 88% freshman retention rate, which is among the highest in the country. Also of note, Molloy graduates’ starting salaries have ranked among the highest in the country in surveys conducted by Georgetown University, and Molloy’s residence halls were also recently ranked the best in New York State by niche.com. Additionally, Collegefactual.com ranks Molloy as the #1 college to study health professions.
The College helps develop ethically minded leaders who strive to be catalysts for change and to ultimately improve the world in which we live. This commitment extends far beyond the campus. Molloy’s global learning courses take students around the world while innovative, collaborative community-focused programs take on the region’s toughest challenges.
Molloy remains committed to both its students and the communities it serves. The College continues to find new ways to help its students grow, sending them out into the world with the knowledge and confidence that they can, indeed, make a difference.
