Colleges! Can i study there?

Hi there! My girfriend is going to study and live in Hyde Park at the Cullinary Institute of America. I decided to live there with her , and to study in a Comunity College, since I dont have enough money to pay a private one. I decided to study something related to Hotel and Tourism. Therefore i visited the [original link] to find out what colleges offers those courses. There are lots of them. The problem is , that I have no ideas , which colleges are far from where im going to live. I mean , I dont know if I can get in these colleges by train, how long it takes, if is worth going there everyday. The colleges available are... DELHI / Broome / Schenectady / Tompkins Cortland / Clinton / Plattsburgh / Finger Lakes / Genesee / Sullivan County / Mohawk Valley / Onondaga / Erie / Dutchess / Jefferson / Morrisville / Buffalo If you know how to go from Hyde Park to at least one of these colleges, or how to help me discovering this information please let me know. Your information will surely be very helpfull. Thank you in anticipation Looking forward to know these information Max

Dutchess is the closest. You also have SUNY New Paltz across the Hudson river from Poughkeepsie.

Dutchess Community College would be closest to Hyde Park. Mapquest.com estimates 7 miles between Hyde Park, NY and Poughkeepsie, NY. If you do not have access to a car then you have to rely on the bus or taxi as a form of transportation. There appears to be a bus schedule which may fit your locations: [original link] There's several bus routes between Poughkeepsie and Hyde Park. See Express A and CTC Morning/Evening bus route maps. And for weekend excursions you can take the Metro North train from the Poughkeepsie Train Station to NYC! See: [original link] For Dutchess Community College see: [original link]

Hi thank you both!!! Thank you very much!!! I would love to study at dutchess.... it is one of the cheapest, and it is surely the clostest. But i still dont know if its a good college. And I think its to risky to apply in only one college. I could be not accepted. I already choosen dutchess, however I dont know much about there. If I could I would study there, but i need some options if im not accepted there. Is Dutchess a good college?? Looking forward to recieving your replys Thank you in aticipation!!

You can also look for other alternatives at: [original link] They publish college guides in the US and the website provides statistics on getting in, selectivity, address, etc. When you go to the site do a search: Location - New York Major - click on detailed listing for "business management and administrative services" and check/select "hospitality/administration management", and "hotel/motel and restaurant management", and "travel-tourism management". This search should give you 2 pages in the state of New York. To find out how far a city is from Hyde Park, just go to [original link] and do driving directions from Hyde Park, NY to {cityname}, NY while leaving the address line blank. This should give you an estimate of how many miles from Hyde Park, NY. Good Luck!

The two major colleges in the area are Dutchess Communty College and SUNY New Paltz. Sullivan County is about 80 miles away. The rest are well over 100 miles away.

Hi Max, I can't tell you about the location, but if you have any questions about travel and tourism's student life in the US, drop me a line. Nathalie
