Molloy College

College-bound students and their parents are always looking for an academic environment that offers the best fit for the student and the best value for their tuition dollars. That is why Molloy College's latest honor, being ranked the "#1 Value All-Star" in the nation by Money(r) magazine, is so rewarding.The recognition comes as part of Money's annual college rankings, which acknowledge the best of the country's institutions of higher education in a multitude of categories. Molloy's top ranking was based on a variety of factors, including graduation rates and earnings of graduates. This category was designed to "determine which schools actually add the most value," according to the magazine."We invest in student success and we challenge our students to succeed. Molloy students are committed to a value system that stresses a strong work ethic, resiliency, professionalism and leadership," said Drew Bogner, Ph.D., President of Molloy College. "This is why they graduate, and why they get hired. We reach beyond the classroom and educate the entire person."Molloy, one of the most affordable private colleges on Long Island, is an independent Catholic college located in Rockville Centre. Molloy was founded in 1955 by the Sisters of Saint Dominic in Amityville, NY. The College provides its approximately 4,900 undergraduate and graduate students with a variety of competitive academic programs, including liberal arts, business, education, nursing, biology, social work, new media, speech language pathology, music therapy, theatre arts, criminal justice and many more.Molloy creates a challenging and nurturing environment for its students. In addition to its 50-plus academic programs, approximately 60 clubs and honor societies, a competitive honors program, various service and internship opportunities, and NCAA Division II athletics, there are abundant opportunities for each student not only to strive for academic excellence, but also to explore new interests and enrich our community.Molloy continues to evolve to meet the needs of its students, adding academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels. In recent years, Molloy added three doctoral programs (in nursing and education) and a master's program in clinical mental health counseling, new MBA options (one in healthcare and one in personal financial planning), as well as a new media major and a four-year degree in nuclear medicine technology. The College also offers flexible learning options for many of its programs, so that students can take night, weekend, hybrid or online classes.Molloy recently opened the new Barbara H. Hagan Center for Nursing, which houses the College's School of Nursing and serves Molloy's nationally-ranked nursing programs. This follows significant additions to the Molloy campus in recent years, including a new student center (which houses the Madison Theatre) and two new residence halls.The College continues to find new ways to help its students grow, sending them out into the world with the knowledge and confidence that they can, indeed, make a difference.
