Molloy College is an independent, private and liberal arts institution located in Rockville Centre on Long Island, New York. It was founded as a women's college by the Dominican Sisters of the Congregation of the Holy Cross Amityville in September 1955. It wasn't until the early 1970s, under Sr. Mary Celeste, that it accepted men into its programs and not until 1982 when it officially became co-ed.[1]

Nationally ranked, yet conveniently located in Rockville Centre, New York - Molloy is one of the most affordable private colleges on Long Island. It is what many consider an "optimally-sized school" with a total student population of approximately 4,450 undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students.[2] Molloy is large enough to offer students an academically-challenging and quality educational experience yet small enough to provide the personal attention to enhance every student's intellectual, ethical, spiritual and social development.
