Students agree that Genesee is special: Last year, in a survey of SUNY community college students, Genesee ranked among the highest in student satisfaction.
Our College is located outside the Upstate New York city of Batavia and nestled amid the scenic villages and farmland of the Genesee Region. Since its founding in 1966 as part of the prestigious
State University of New York, Genesee has become one of the most highly-respected community colleges in the United States.
Although we're a small college (about 4,000 full-time and part-time students) we've been able to bring to Genesee many of the top-notch programs you'd ordinarily expect to see only at large universities. That's why Genesee has become the college choice for students across New York State and many other parts of the United States as well. Thanks in part to available housing nearby, a growing number of international students have chosen to make Genesee part of their educational careers.
Genesee is a friendly college, a place where classes rarely exceed 30 students and where professors and students know each other well. Our main campus is located on 240 acres of gently rolling land situated in the quiet countryside. Yet, we're just minutes from Batavia, a half-hour's drive to the Buffalo and Rochester metropolitan areas, and not far from Niagara Falls and Toronto.
We offer day and evening classes at our Campus Centers located in Albion, Arcade, Dansville, Lima, Medina, and Warsaw.
