Open House: April 14

Molloy is where you’ll become who you were always meant to be.

“We invest in our students’ success and prepare them to succeed,” said Molloy University President James P. Lentini, D.M.A. “Molloy students are committed to a value system that stresses a strong work ethic, resiliency, professionalism, service and leadership.”

Investing in Students’ Success

“At Molloy University, we provide an education that leads to success in areas that include the health professions, arts and sciences, education, and business, rooted in liberal arts to develop critical thinkers who are prepared for the future,” said President James Lentini. “This is why they graduate and find success individually and professionally. Inspired by our Catholic Dominican tradition, we welcome a diverse community of students and reach beyond the classroom to educate the entire person.”

A small student-to-faculty ratio (10:1) means that students are more than a number to Molloy’s professors, who go above and beyond serving as mentors to students. Molloy makes it easy to earn a degree, offering flexible learning options and resources for transfer students, career changers, and veterans.

Academic Programs That Fuel Careers

Students can earn degrees in a variety of outstanding academic programs that lead to rich and rewarding careers (including nursing, business, education, fine arts, social work, psychology, biology, and computer studies). Classes are taught by an accomplished and innovative faculty who are always approachable.

Molloy also offers a variety of graduate and doctoral programs that provide the opportunity for students to further their careers or take a new direction while pursuing their passion. Graduate and doctoral programs include a variety of MBA options, including the new business analytics track, as well as programs in clinical mental health counseling, criminal justice, music therapy, speech-language pathology, education, and nursing.

Molloy Emphasizes Value & Values

Molloy was recently recognized as one of Money magazine’s 2023 “Best Colleges,” receiving a coveted 4-star rating. The Princeton Review also named Molloy one of the “Best Regional Colleges” for 2023, and the University was ranked #1 on a list of the “Safest Colleges” in New York State. Molloy was recently named one of the top 50 “Value” institutions in the country by Niche, the only Long Island university or college to earn this distinction.

In addition to being recognized as a great value, Molloy is one of the lower-priced private universities in the region, and approximately 90 percent of Molloy students receive some form of institutional aid.

“We provide our students with the best possible value,” said President Lentini. “If you come to Molloy, you graduate with a job in your field at a salary that’s significantly higher than average.”

Drawing on the Strength of the New York Metropolitan Region

One of Molloy’s many strengths is its proximity to New York City. Nestled in the Long Island suburbs just a short ride from Manhattan, Molloy takes advantage of the NYC metro region to provide its students with the highest quality internships and clinical placements. The largest metropolitan region in the country, the NYC metro area is a world leader in healthcare, business and finance, education, criminal justice, performing arts, and much, much more.

Vibrant Student Life

We know you are serious about your education, but not all learning occurs in the classroom. With more than 50 clubs/student associations, evening and weekend activities and trips, a 550-seat theatre, exciting dining options, extensive service opportunities, and popular study and meeting areas, Molloy gives you the opportunity to enjoy yourself and make new friends.

Additionally, Molloy competes in NCAA Division II Athletics and has an array of club sports teams. Molloy recently added a sprint football team. The only program in the region, the inaugural season begins in the fall of 2024.

Are you interested in living on campus? Molloy’s three residence halls house approximately 350 students and provide energy for a campus already buzzing with activity. Living with roommates, meeting new people, and learning to live independently will help you succeed in and out of the classroom.
