CNR graduates have made their mark in every field of endeavor!

After I graduated from CNR, I obtained a management position with an increase in salary of over $10,000 a year. That position took me to Columbia University Medical Center.  Without attending the Rosa Parks Campus of The College of New Rochelle, I would not have met the supportive academic family that assisted me with my life."
