Campus Facilities & Equipment

The College of Saint Rose has spent $7 million recently on new technology. The College's Networked Writing Lab allows students to write in teams and edit each other's work. The journalism, science, business, and education departments also have their own computer labs with software specific to those career fields so that students are trained in the latest technology in their particular industry. The Massry Center for the Arts (Spring 2008) It has been said that it is the arts which gives life meaning, the arts which make the heart want to create and the soul to sing. On December 9, the heart and soul of the College collectively sang with joy as the College announced a $2 million gift by the Massry family that will permanently and symbolically ensure that the visual and performing arts will always be a centerpiece of a Saint Rose education. The largest gift ever by this prominent Capital Region family, it will help fund the construction of the new Massry Center for the Arts on Madison Avenue. Additionally, a $7.5 million Events and Athletics Center, features a new gymnasium, new team and training rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and two-story lobby. With the creation of this facility, The College of Saint Rose provides an on-campus venue worthy of welcoming best-selling authors, Nobel Prize winners, and world-famous performers. This space will also serve as a unique collegiate basketball venue in the Capital Region, large enough to showcase the premier Saint Rose NCAA intercollegiate athletics program, and to accommodate the Golden Knights loyal fan base
