8. SUNY New Paltz

The State University of New York at New Paltz has origins in the New Paltz Classical School, an institution founded in 1828. SUNY New Paltz has received more student applications than any other SUNY school for several decades – and for good reason, as it has won several accolades and rewards for being affordable yet not compromising on educational quality.

Not only is SUNY New Paltz known for its bachelor programs, but it is also ranked eighth among the best public universities in the north for its comprehensive master’s degree programs. Offering more than 100 undergraduate and 50 graduate degree programs, SUNY New Paltz has consistently emphasized the importance of an inclusive, productive environment. The school’s environment has helped to foster many influential people like Chief Financial Officer of the New York Times Company James M. Follo, former Federal Communications Commission Chief of Staff Daniel Gonzalez, and Professor of Government at Harvard University Gary King – just to name a few.

The state University of New York at Stony Brook is a public research university that partakes in the National Sea Grant College Program and the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. These programs enable faculty, students, and the college to engage in outer space related and sea conservation research.

Founded in 1957, Stony Brook University has expanded to more than 200 major buildings across more than 1450 acres of land. Even though public entities fund Stony Brook University, it is still compared to private institutions like Cornell, Columbia, and Rochester University.

Stony Brook University shares similar accolades, as it is also part of the Association of American Universities. This organization recognizes leading universities that are devoted to maintaining a strong system of academic research, with the total group membership represented by only  60 schools. Stony Brook University is a torch of excellence as demonstrated by the many awards from the National Science Foundation as well as fostering Noble Peace Prize winners in its faculty.
