The College of Mount Saint Vincent is situated on a 70 acre campus of forested hills that overlook the magnificent Hudson River and the Palisades. Rich in natural landscapes and history, the campus should be a place that is architecturally engaging and inspiring. Yet, what the campus has is only sufficient.

NATURE. Forests & Hills
HISTORY. Sisters of Charity
ACADEMIA. Students & Faculty
