About Utica College

A Welcome Message from Dr. Laura Casamento


Thank you for your interest in Utica College, and on behalf of the entire UC community, welcome. I invite you to explore our Web site so that you can get a closer look at all we have to offer.

Utica College combines many of the advantages of a large university - such as innovative programs, world-renowned faculty, advanced research facilities, and real-world learning opportunities - with the personal attention and close-knit culture of a small, private college. We offer a unique blend of liberal and professional studies that provides our students with the skills, knowledge, and experience they need to build successful lives and achieve their dreams.

Though we are a relatively young college, we have a proud history. UC was founded in 1946 to serve veterans returning from World War II. Over the decades that followed, we have seen remarkable growth, earning a national reputation for excellence and innovation. Still, the core of our mission has remained the same - that of making the dream of a quality, private education more attainable for the families and communities we serve.

I am particularly proud of the passion that is shared by everyone associated with this institution, from students and faculty to our more than 20,000 alumni worldwide. You can hear directly from them via video interviews posted on our admissions and alumni pages, as well as on individual program pages. You can also learn a lot about UC by visiting our Athletics department site and listening to the voices of our more than 600 dedicated student athletes.

Of course, the best way to experience Utica College is to pay us a visit. When you come to campus for an admissions event or arrange a private visit, you will discover an extraordinarily welcoming community of students, faculty, and staff; a campus that celebrates diversity in all of its forms; a place that feels like home from the moment you arrive. While our programs, facilities, and learning technologies are of exceptional quality, what truly sets UC apart is its people, and I hope you will take the opportunity to meet them in person and share their stories.

I look forward to seeing you on campus in the near future.

Best regards,

Dr. Laura Casamento, President of Utica College

Laura Casamento, Ed.D.
