Nature

Students are often so enthralled by Vassar's campus—its 1,000 acres of arboretum, its two lakes, its forests—that they can forget the natural beauty just beyond the college's gates. Inhabitants enjoy incredible rock climbing at the Gunks, sailing on the Hudson, hiking through the Mohonk preserve, and much, much more.

Shopping

The Arlington Business District—one of the most vibrant communities in Dutchess County—sits directly outside of the campus. Arlington includes specialty retail shops featuring fine jewelry, clothing, art and collectibles, gifts, books, art supplies, hardware and health foods.
