You may have chosen Albertus Magnus College because of its degree programs, commitment to high-quality education, or for its affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church. AMC is a private, not-for-profit college set within the midsize city of New Haven, CT. This school was founded in 1925 and has, for 95 years, remained a small, private school.
Overview of Albertus Magnus College
As you walk around the campus, you’ll notice that, while it’s small, its size is sufficient to easily house and educate their 1,456 enrolled students. The student-to-faculty ratio is 13 to 1, which should allow you easy access to your professors if you need to discuss your classes. Campus housing is available, so you and your fellow students are able to live in dorms.
As you leave campus to get to know New Haven, you might want to scope out areas of interest such as the adventure ropes course and Lighthouse Point Park. You’ll also be able to find restaurants and other activities you’ll enjoy while you’re a student at Albertus Magnus College—taking some time to relax will help you in your studies. You’ll also notice that some of the building names are Italian (Tagliatela Academic Center and Siena Hall) and others are Latin—this is in accordance with Catholic tradition.
