College can be the best time in a person's life. It's when you learn to do things on your own, figure out what it is that you want to do, and maybe, most importantly make some of your best friends.

With these things in mind, and my own graduation looming in the near future, I have begun to think about graduate school. Yes, graduate school is different from completing my undergraduate studies, but it will still offer me a taste of why I love college so much. Grad school allows people to continue to work on themselves and postion themselves for a better job in the future.

Thankfully, living in the Albany-area allows me the liberty in the future to attend a graduate school that is local and would fit into my schedule. This school is The College of Saint Rose, which is located in the heart of Albany. Through my experience with Saint Rose as an undergrad, I can attest to the fact that the feeling of community present at the school has had a positive influence on me. That coupled with the low student-to-faculty ratio lay the groundwork for a solid education.

Take a look at their 52 different programs online or stop into their next Graduate Admissions and Continuing Education open house on June 10.
