Vassar offers a free shuttle bus service into Poughkeepsie, operated by the Leprechaun Lines company during the Fall and Spring semesters.

More Information »


Poughkeepsie, the Arlington neighborhood, and Dutchess County are home to Vassar College. This is where our students spend four significant years of their lives. It's where our neighbors and employees live, work, raise families, and serve the community.

More Information »


Offered by most departments for academic credit, field work enables students to examine the way the theories and the practical experiences of a particular discipline interact. It provides opportunities for observation and participation which are not ordinarily available in classwork. Depending on their academic interests, students undertake internships in a variety of organizations and agencies in the local community and other places.
