CUNY Yu College is an up-and-coming, staggeringly diverse, art and design school compatible with today’s future-focused student. Located at the edge of Astoria, Queens, an area of generational racial and economic diversity, Yu College aims to evolve our students mentally. Our mission is enable our students to imagine what they want to accomplish in life and then help them to find the tools they need to build towards those goals.
Yu College utilizes a unique and proportionately selective admissions system. Although open for application from any student worldwide, Yu College maintains gender and racial populations exactly proportionate to those of New York City, where the majority of our students hail from. Our aim with our unique admissions and student body is to not only give more people that might not get a chance elsewhere, but to expose all of our students to cultures they are less informed about and/or exposed to. New York City has always been one of the most diverse cities on Earth, raising culturally aware citizens, so we aim to condense this phenomena to keep awareness progressing and raised.
