With 2023 coming to an end, there is a list that no college in New York wants to be on, but three schools found themselves on the list of "Worst Colleges In America"

Looking at colleges and Universities can be a daunting task. From Big to small, rural to urban, there are so many factors that come into play when picking the perfect school for you or your family.

Recently the website, Avocadoposts.com, put out a list of the worst colleges and Universities in the country and three schools in New York made the list.

The schools were ranked on high tuition costs, low graduation rates, and poor return on investment.

The three New York colleges that made the list are:

Hartwick College

Located in Oneonta, New York, Hartwick was put on the list for a low graduation rate, which was at %58 along with the high cost of school. The average student plats around their starting salary of $48,000.

Skidmore College

Skidmore was founded in Saratoga Springs, New York, and is known for it arts and liberal arts program. The school boosts an 89% graduation rate, but the biggest issue is that most students pay more per year than they will make when they graduate. At $50,000 per year, Skidmore lands on the list for a low return on investment.
