This Upstate New York College "Does More for America" Than Any Other School

A story from New York Upstate told the story of SUNY Geneseo, an Upstate New York college in the area near the Finger Lakes, which was featured in a recent study done by Washington Monthly.

The study ranked all liberal arts colleges based on research done on three major categories: social mobility, research, and promoting public service. With that in mind, SUNY Genesco was ranked No. 1 on the list, setting the pace for the 604 master’s universities considered in the study.

If you've never visited the campus, here is where it's located in New York:

Out of the three major categories, SUNY Genesco was ranked 1st in service, 2nd in research and 69th in social mobility. The school was also ranked first out of the six schools in New York that made the list, with Cornell, Buffalo State, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, SUNY Cortland and SUNY Potsdam also being ranked somewhere between 2nd and 604th.
