Mercy College Named 2020 Best College for a Second Year in a Row by Westchester Magazine

Dobbs Ferry, New York – June 23, 2020 – For the second year in a row, Mercy College is proud to announce that it has been honored by Westchester Magazine as the 2020 Best College in Westchester. Mercy will be celebrated in Westchester Magazine’s Best of Westchester issue, as well as at this summer’s Best of Westchester party.

This is the second time Mercy College has been recognized as Westchester Magazine’s Best College and the only college to receive the honor twice.

“We are honored and humbled to receive this accolade for the second year in a row,” said Timothy Hall, President of Mercy College. “It is wonderful to know your community of alumni, students and neighbors believe you stand out among the many fine institutions of higher education in Westchester County. After the unprecedented spring and summer term brought on by the coronavirus this recognition is even more meaningful, and we are looking forward to welcoming our students back for the fall term.”

Mercy College finished with the highest number of votes in the College/University category in the Services section of the readers’ ballot. Readers of Westchester Magazine voted during a period of online balloting from December 2, 2019 through January 22, 2020. The Best of Westchester party will take place on Wednesday, August 19, at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. Best of Westchester winners from various categories are expected to attend.
