Potsdam, N.Y., our little college town, isn’t the most central location. But here in the shadows of the Adirondack mountains, you’ll find there’s lots to explore.
A Location that inspires.
Secluded among the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, surrounded by stunning natural beauty, you’ll find a college that gives new meaning to the phrase “off the beaten path.”
Thanks in part to our out-of-the-way location, SUNY Potsdam has evolved over its 200-plus year history into something you might not expect.
Here, you’ll find a surprisingly sophisticated, richly eclectic, and creative college experience rooted in intellectual freedom and personal development.
