The City College of New York was the first college in The City University of New York system. Since its doors opened in 1847, the school prides itself on serving a diverse student body. When CCNY sought a new home it considered 40 different sites before selecting land between St. Nicholas Terrace and Convent Ave, stretching from 138th street to 140th in Hamilton Heights. This is where the school remains today. CCNY offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs along with 13 doctoral programs.
