Molloy College’s Open House Set for April 24
Molloy College’s Open House is scheduled for Sunday, April 24, at 1 p.m. “One of the strengths of a Molloy education is the direct contact our students have with their peers and their professors,” said Dr. James P. Lentini, Molloy’s president. “These positive interactions take place on campus every day and we are looking forward to bringing that same energy to our open house on April 24.” Molloy College Emphasizes Careers, Value and Values College-bound students and their parents are always looking for an academic environment that offers the best fit and the best value for their tuition dollars. Molloy was recently ranked the #18 “value added” college in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal, arguably the nation’s premier financial publication. Molloy has also earned other honors, including being ranked the #10 best value among Catholic colleges nationwide by College Values Online and consistently being ranked as one of the best colleges in the region by U.S. News & World Report. In addition to being recognized as a great value, Molloy is one of the lower-priced private colleges in the region. Approximately 90 percent of Molloy students receive some form of institutional aid, and Molloy’s retention rate of nearly 90 percent (one of the highest in the country) means that most of its students graduate on time. “We are dedicated to providing our students with the best possible value. If you come to Molloy, you graduate with a job in your field at a salary that’s significantly higher than average.” – Dr. James Lentini, President, Molloy College Investing in Student Success “We invest in our students’ success and we prepare them to be successful. Molloy students are committed to a value system that stresses a strong work ethic, resiliency, professionalism and leadership,” said President Lentini. “This is why they graduate, and why they get hired. We reach beyond the classroom and educate the entire person.” A small student-to-faculty ratio (10:1) means that students are more than a number to Molloy professors, who provide input and guidance that enable students to pursue their dreams. Academic Programs That Fuel Careers Molloy students can earn degrees in a variety of outstanding academic programs (including nursing, business, education, social work, music therapy, computer studies and many more) that lead to rich and rewarding careers. Additionally, Molloy offers a variety of graduate and doctoral programs that provide the opportunity for students to further enhance their career or take a new direction while pursuing a passion. These programs include a variety of MBA options, as well as programs in clinical mental health counseling, criminal justice, music therapy, speech-language pathology, education and nursing. What’s New Some of Molloy’s newer offerings include an online MBA, as well as a new degree completion program that will enable returning students to easily complete their undergraduate degree. In fall 2021, the School of Business launched a new major in entertainment and sport management. One of Molloy’s newest programs is The Experiential Academy. This two-year program enables students to fulfill their entire general education requirements through hands-on, active, in-the-world learning. This program meets only one day a week on campus and uses online modules and assignments to create flexibility in the learning environment. At the end of two years, students will have completed an associate degree and have the opportunity to transition into most majors at the College.
