The College of Saint Rose is home to students from more than 40 countries, with the list growing every year. In addition to their academic work, our international students play an active role in our campus community. When you ask an international student at Saint Rose what makes their experience a special one, they will tell you it is the quality of relationships that they build with people – their professors, classmates, colleagues at their internships, and others throughout the Albany area.
