Short Ride To Anywhere.
e’ll let you in on a little secret: This is a great place to live.
For one thing, traffic is not a problem at all. You can go shopping, catch a movie, get an amazing meal (any cuisine you can name), see a Broadway production, visit a first-class art museum… even do some downhill skiing, all within a few minutes’ ride of campus.
Go a little further and you’re in the Adirondacks – a storied paradise of forested mountains, crystal-clear lakes and streams, ski resorts, and other attractions. Head south and there’s Cooperstown, the birthplace of baseball. Syracuse is less than an hour away; New York and Boston about five hours.
It may seem a little out-of-the-way, but the Utica area is a place rich in history and cultural heritage, with many of the benefits of a larger community and virtually none of the drawbacks.
Now you’ve learned something that few other people know. That’s what UC is all about.
