high school senior who came to see us recently said, “I have never felt so at home on a college campus until I visited here”.
Albertus Magnus College, a four-year, private, liberal arts college located in the heart of vibrant southern Connecticut, has chosen it’s small size on purpose. Our aim is to make all our students feel that they have found their academic home. Our student-staff ratio of 13-1 means that the faculty and staff are committed to knowing who you are, understanding how you learn and helping you discover what your contributions in the world will be. We believe that a foundation in the liberal arts is excellent preparation for life and offers the groundwork for a multitude of professions.
Founded in 1925 by the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs, Albertus Magnus College educates men and women to become leaders in all areas of their lives. Faculty members at Albertus come from leading universities of the United States and abroad and are one of the College’s greatest assets. Ninety per-cent of the 75 full and part-time faculty members hold a Ph.D. or the equivalent. Their primary concern is teaching, although the work of many faculty members has been published. Students find faculty members accessible for academic or personal counseling and for campus sports and activities.

The 500 students who attend the traditional undergraduate program at Albertus come from various parts of the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia, and South and Central America. Though we are small we are proud to lay claim to being one of the most diverse small schools in the state of Connecticut. We feel that by living and studying in a community with a wide range of people you are putting yourself in the best position to live in the multi-cultural world as it is. About 50 percent of the students live on campus in housing that has been converted from large former estate homes. The housing program fosters a strong sense of community spirit, and students often plan parties and other social events in their residence halls. The Campus Center is a hub of student activities such as comedians, live music, contests, and other unique celebrations.
Albertus Magnus College and the New England community are fresh, up to date and exciting. We are small by design, personal in nature and ready to talk to you about choosing your academic home.
