 A Message from the PRESIDENT
 and Founder of the UNIVERSITY of
 NEW YORK in PRAGUE
Dear Students,

Our era is characterized by increasing globalization. Technological advances that allow for
the instant transmission of information are changing communication, business, education
and even lifestyles. The expansion of international trade and tourism coupled with world-
wide media communication are also changing the way we think and live. Individuals, cor-
porations, markets, and nation-states can reach around the world faster and more cheaply
than ever before. Traditional boundaries between culture, commerce, technology, politics
and the environment are rapidly disappearing. National borders are no longer barriers to
learning, living and working. People may speak different languages, eat different foods,
                                                                                              Elias Foutsis
and worship in different ways, but these are no longer reasons for isolation. The world       President of UNYP

today is truly a global village, and we are all members of the same community.

We know that advanced education is the cornerstone for meeting the challenges and seiz-
ing the opportunities that globalization presents. We also know that academic studies
and a degree from a well-respected university are prerequisites for a successful career in
a highly competitive environment. At the University of New York in Prague we have
applied the same successful models of academic collaboration with well-known interna-
tional universities as those being used at New York College in Athens, considered to be
one of the best colleges in Greece.

Our aim is to expand your global horizons and provide you with the knowledge, experi-
ence and multi-cultural perspective that will allow you to explore, learn, question, create
and thrive as productive members of a global society in your chosen careers.

UNYP prides itself in offering you a multiplicity of academic choices and opportunities
for you to study with a distinguished international faculty dedicated to an interactive
teaching style. UNYP maintains high expectations for its students and high academic
standards in the classroom. We are committed to giving you the personal attention, sup-
port and care necessary for you to be successful.

I welcome you to UNYP and wish you all the best in your academic studies as well as in
your personal lives and future professional careers.

Elias Foutsis
President, University of New York in Prague and New York College, Athens




                                                                                                                  5
                  UNIVERSITY of
                  NEW YORK in PRAGUE
     The University of New York in Prague (UNYP) was established in April
     1998 with the assistance of the State University of New York at New Paltz
     and Empire State College of the State University of New York. Through
     this cooperation, UNYP offers students the opportunity to obtain an inter-
     nationally recognized American Bachelor’s Degree. Students enrolled at
     the University of New York in Prague have the option of completing
     their Bachelor’s Degree by studying four years in Prague in cooperation
     with SUNY Empire State College or they may transfer to SUNY New
     Paltz after two years of successful preparation. UNYP also received assis-
     tance from its sister college, New York College, in Athens, Greece. New
     York College has a 13 year history of offering international Bachelor’s and
     Master’s Degree programs in partnership with accredited American and
     European universities.

     The undergraduate program is based on the American style of university
     education and classes are taught in English. The goal of the program is to
     introduce students to a range of academic disciplines, to prepare them to
     master the techniques of critical thinking, effective communication, analy-
     sis and research, and acquire the knowledge necessary for a professional
     specialization in a major field.

     UNYP offers programs in four major specializations: Business Admini-
     stration, European and International Economic Studies, Communication
     and Mass Media, and Psychology.

     UNYP also works closely with large multinational firms located in Prague,
     establishing internships that will give students the opportunity to apply
     their skills in a work setting.

     UNYP has recieved the support of various public universities in Prague
     and continues to maintain a close relationship with Charles University, the
     University of Economics in Prague and the Czech Technical University in
     Prague. Many of the UNYP faculty are also members of the teaching facul-
     ties at these universities.

     In a few short years, UNYP has gained a reputation for offering high qual-
     ity, challenging educational programs by providing a strong foundation in
     the liberal arts and professional majors with a cross-cultural and interna-
     tional perspective. Today, over 700 students from 58 countries are learning
     together and interacting with an international faculty. UNYP is proud of its
     accomplishments and its ability to blend the rich academic history of the
66   Czech Republic with American and European higher education.

 A Message from the DEAN of
 INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS
 of the STATE UNIVERSITY of NEW
 YORK EMPIRE STATE COLLEGE


Dear Students,

Welcome to the University of New York in Prague and to the State University of
New York Empire State College. The collaboration between these two institutions
has been established in order to offer students in the Czech Republic the opportu-
nity to complete a State University of New York Bachelor’s Degree while living in
the Czech Republic.

After two–three years of study at UNYP, students who qualify are eligible to
continue their studies in Prague with Empire State College. They will receive aca-
demic advising, degree program planning, and other academic services from teams
of Empire State College faculty, and instruction from them along with instruc-
tors resident in the Czech Republic. Their credits from UNYP, if completed at the                Dr. Kenneth Abrams
grade of C- or better, will be transferable to Empire State College and be included    Dean of International Programs
                                                                                          SUNY Empire State College
as part of the 128 credits required for the Bachelor’s Degree from SUNY Empire
State College.

Since the language of instruction is English, students will have the opportunity to
develop and polish their English language skills. Since this program has attracted
a multinational student body, students are sure to have a genuine international
experience combined with the convenience of residence in the Czech Republic.
A curriculum with a western perspective, academic planning and counseling
with instructors from the United States, a replication of the style of intellectual
exchange common to much of the coursework in the United States; all of these are
meant to provide a North American approach to higher education for students in
Prague. While we cannot recreate the social environment of a university campus
in the United States, we hope to transmit some of the special perspectives of under-
graduate intellectual life.

We wish you well and look forward to celebrating the awarding of your degrees
with you. Good luck in your studies.

The University of New York in Prague also received accreditation from
the British Accreditation Council in 2001.

 BACHELOR’S DEGREE PROGRAMS
It takes an average of four years or eight semesters to complete a Bachelor’s
Degree. Most students enroll in five or six courses per semester. This time
may be reduced if the student registers for the maximum of six courses each
semester or attends one or more summer sessions.

During the first two years of study, students take a combination of introduc-
tory courses in their major and general education courses. Many of these
courses were developed in collaboration with SUNY New Paltz and are
approved for transfer to that university. The course content parallels the con-
tent of the courses offered at SUNY New Paltz. These courses are required
for students to earn a degree from the State University of New York at New
Paltz or the State University of New York Empire State College.

In the third and fourth years of study, students enroll in upper level courses
in their selected program of study. These courses have been approved for
each program of study or major by SUNY, Empire State College.

                                                                                                  17
                     ACADEMIC MAJORS and COURSES
      MAJOR
     A major consists of a series of courses at the introductory and advanced
     level within a defined academic framework leading to a Bachelor’s Degree.
     The institution granting the degree, either SUNY New Paltz or Empire State
     College, approves majors or programs of study and the courses included in
     the major. Through mastery of subjects taught in the major, students acquire
     the basic foundation and specialization necessary for a successful transition
     to graduate study or a professional career.

      GENERAL EDUCATION
     General education courses expose students to the areas of knowledge that
     characterize a broadly educated person, and are designed to assist them in
     developing both a global perspective and an understanding of the traditions
     and complexities of a democratic society. All courses emphasize critical think-
     ing and are designed to develop students’ ability in effective expression (writ-
     ten and oral), systematic inquiry, information literacy and ethical reflection.

      COURSES
     Most courses are assigned three academic credits, although a few courses
     may be assigned two or four academic credits. Courses may be placed in
     three categories:

     1. Required Courses: Courses at the introductory and advanced level that are
        required to complete the major.
     2. General Education Courses: Courses that are required for all majors and
        must be completed during the first two years of study.
     3. Elective Courses: Courses chosen by students according to their interests or
        courses added to a major so that students may specialize in a second area.

     UNYP and SUNY Empire State College Bachelor’s Degree Track

     This option is designed for students who wish to complete their State
     University of New York (SUNY) Bachelor’s Degree requirements in residence
     in Prague. Empire State College is authorized to award SUNY Bachelor of Arts
     and Bachelor of Science Degrees through its International Programs. The first
     international program was established in London in 1971. There is no distinc-
     tion between an Empire State College degree earned through study in the
     Czech Republic or New York. Graduates of Empire State College International
     Programs work in American and international companies and have earned
     Master’s degrees and doctorates from American and international universi-

     of study students earn an additional 30 to 36 upper level credits. A total of
     96 credits are required for advanced standing (a combination of lower—and
     upper—level courses). 32 credits in Empire State College courses are required
     to earn the Bachelor’s Degree. All students must complete the 32 credit Empire
     State College course requirement.
     In order to ensure that students are fulfilling their degree requirements, all stu-

                 ADMISSIONS


      UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION
     The University of New York in Prague (UNYP) seeks to enroll a student
     population which is representative of today’s global society. Admission
     to the University of New York in Prague will be based primarily on the
     applicant’s academic credentials and his/her knowledge of the English
     language. Admission is granted without regard to sex, age, religion, race,
     color, national origin, sexual orientation or marital status.


      FRESHMAN ADMISSION
     Admission to UNYP is competitive. Primary consideration will be given
     to the candidate’s academic preparation.

     The general requirements for consideration for admission are as
     follows:

       Graduation from an accredited high school or its equivalent, as shown
       by the applicant’s diploma or examination records.
       An official TOEFL score of 197 (computer-based test) or above or 530
       (paper & pencil test) or above.

     Prospective students without an official TOEFL score may take the
     Institutional TOEFL exam at UNYP.

     UNYP does not require supplemental documents in addition to the neces-
     sary documents listed above to complete a UNYP application. However,
     candidates may enhance their application by providing a variety of addi-
     tional information, including, but not limited to senior mid-year grades;
     recommendations from academic teachers and advisors; and resume
     of school activities, honors, awards, and/or leadership positions. These
     materials should be sent with a candidate’s application form.

 ADMISSIONS

 TRANSFER ADMISSION
UNYP welcomes qualified candidates from accredited two- and four–year
colleges and universities. Prospective transfer students must present a
competitive grade point average (G.P.A.) for all previously completed
coursework to be considered for admission. Transfer candidates in good
academic standing with fewer than 24 credits must submit, in addition
to the official college transcripts, their official High School Diploma and
an official TOEFL test score above 197 (computer-based) or 530 (paper-
based).

 EVALUATION and AWARDING OF TRANSFER CREDITS
The evaluation of previous college or university credits is provided to
accepted candidates who have indicated their intention to enroll at UNYP
through payment of the Pre-enrollment deposit (PED). Should the evalua-
tion be needed in order to make an enrollment decision, candidates should
contact the Bachelor’s Degree Program Coordinator.
Students must provide official transcripts (with official English translation,
if necessary), course descriptions and course syllabi for all courses they
wish to have considered for transfer. These courses must be appropriate
for credit towards a Bachelor’s Degree. Some courses may fulfill UNYP
requirements; however, some courses may be transferred as electives only
or may not be accepted.
Credits transferred to UNYP from other institutions do not automatically
transfer to SUNY New Paltz or Empire State College. Students completing
their degrees at SUNY New Paltz or Empire State College must also submit
transcripts and course materials for evaluation.
Normally, UNYP allows for the transfer of a maximum of 60 credits from
a two-year college or a maximum of 75 credits from a four-year college/
university, or a combination of both two-year and four-year institutions. A
maximum of 30 non-liberal arts credits may be awarded in transfer.
UNYP will not accept for credit any course with a grade below “C”.

                        ACADEMIC PLACEMENT

      ENGLISH COMPOSITION PLACEMENT
     Prior to enrolling at UNYP, all prospective UNYP students must take an English
     Composition Placement Test. This placement test measures the student’s
     understanding and mastery of grammar, mechanics and syntax, as well as the
     ability to compose a well-developed short essay. Students must produce one
     written essay in response to a general topic provided by UNYP; the test is 45
     minutes long. The English Language Faculty will evaluate each essay to deter-
     mine student placement. Students with limited writing skills will be required
     to enroll in English Pre-Composition. All other students will enroll in English
     Composition I.


      MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT
     All prospective UNYP students also will be required to take a Mathematics
     Placement Test to determine whether they meet the proficiency requirement
     to enter Basic Calculus. Students who do not meet this requirement will enroll
     in College Algebra. The test lasts one hour and consists of 25 questions about
     the basic concepts of algebra. The Mathematics Faculty will evaluate each test
     to determine student placement.


      PLACEMENT OF NON-NATIVE SPEAKERS OF ENGLISH
     Before entering UNYP, students who are non-native speakers of English must
     either submit an official TOEFL test score or take an Institutional TOEFL test at
     UNYP. The number of non-ESL courses a student takes in his/her Fall semester
     of his/her freshman year is determined by a student’s TOEFL score, interview
     and placement essay.
       A student who scores 197 or above on the computer-based test or 530 or above on
       the paper-based test may take five credit courses.
       A student who scores between 190‒196 on the computer-based test or between
       520‒529 will take three courses, plus 6 hours of additional English language classes
       per week.
       A student who scores between 180‒189 on the computer-based test or between
       510‒519 will take two courses, plus 9 hours of additional English language classes
       per week.
       A student who scores between 173‒189 on the computer-based test or between
       500‒509 will take one course, plus 12 hours of additional English language classes
       per week.
       A student who scores between 150‒172 on the computer-based test or between
       470‒499 will be enrolled in 20 hours per week of intensive English languages only.

 SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM

 ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE PROGRAM
Students who do not meet the TOEFL criteria for admission may enroll
in a number of English language classes and a limited academic program
depending on his/her TOEFL score and placement essay (see “Academic
Placement”).

The goals of the intensive English language courses are to develop English
writing, speaking, and listening skills needed to succeed in an academic envi-
ronment in which all teaching is done in English.

Students will develop academic skills that will enable them to:

  Effectively and critically analyze academic texts
  Understand the importance and necessity of effective study skills
  Improve lecture note-taking skills
  Write effectively in an academic tone
  Build their vocabulary
  Improve their TOEFL scores.

These English language classes do not count towards the number of credits
a student needs to complete a degree. Rather, they are designed to improve
students’ English language abilities so that they may enroll in at least five
courses in their study program and complete these courses satisfactorily.




                                                                                 33

 GRADING

 UNIT OF ACADEMIC CREDIT
Generally, one credit represents the equivalent of one hour of lecturing, or
at least two hours of laboratory work, each week. Students are expected to
spend approximately two hours outside of class preparing for each hour
they spend in class.


 GRADING SYSTEM
Student performance is evaluated by the following letter grades:
   A or A-      Outstanding work exhibiting a high level of excellence
   B+, B or B- Good work which is distinctly above average
   C+, C or C- Acceptable work that is neither distinctly above nor
                below what is expected from the average student
   D+, D, or D- Passing work that is significantly below average
   F            Work that does not meet the minimum standards for
                passing the course

Courses in which a student receives a grade of D+ or below will not be
accepted for transfer or counted towards a degree by SUNY New Paltz
and SUNY Empire State College or most other institutions of higher edu-
cation in the United States.


 GRADE POINT AVERAGE (G.P.A.)
Semester and cumulative grade point averages (G.P.A.), the basis for
assessing a student’s academic standing and their graduation eligibility,
are derived as follows: each credit graded “A” through “F” is given a cor-
responding numerical value called “quality points”.
The following chart shows the quality points earned by one credit:
          A 4.00        B-   2.67      D+   1.33
          A- 3.67       C+   2.33      D    1.00
          B+ 3.33       C    2.00      D-   0.67
          B 3.00        C-   1.67      F    0.00

The grade point average is determined by dividing the credits graded
“A” through “F” into the number of quality points earned. The semester
G.P.A. includes the credits and quality points of that semester. The cumu-
lative G.P.A. is based upon the combined total of the credits and quality
points for all semesters of study.

                                                                               39
                 GRADING

      INCOMPLETE GRADES
     An “I” or Incomplete is granted to a student when, and only when, the
     student has completed at least three-quarters of the required coursework,
     and due to unavoidable circumstances the student is prevented from fin-
     ishing the remaining quarter. The student must complete the course by the
     middle of the next semester, or the “I” will be converted to an “F”.


      COURSE WITHDRAWALS
     A grade of “W” will be recorded on the student’s transcript for approved
     course withdrawals. Students may withdraw from a course for any reason
     during the official withdrawal period, approximately two weeks after the
     mid-point in the semester.

     Students must submit a Course Withdrawal form approved by their
     instructor and Academic Advisor to the Registrar. Course Withdrawal
     forms with unauthorized signatures will not be processed and students
     will be subject to disciplinary action.

     If the instructor and/or the Academic Advisor do not approve a course
     withdrawal request, the student must continue to attend class and com-
     plete all assignments, including the final examination. A student who
     stops attending class without obtaining an approved Course Withdrawal
     will receive the grade of “F”.

      COURSE FAILURES
     In order to graduate, students must repeat all courses in which they
     received a grade of F. Students who receive a D+, D or D- in a course must
     also repeat the course in order to transfer the course credits to SUNY New
     Paltz or SUNY Empire State College.




40
 ACADEMIC STANDING

GOOD ACADEMIC STANDING
A student with a cumulative grade point average (G.P.A.) of 2.00 or higher
is considered to be in “good academic standing”.


ACADEMIC WARNING AND PROBATION
Students with a semester G.P.A. or a cumulative G.P.A. of less than 2.00
will be placed on academic probation. First semester freshmen will not be
placed on academic probation, but will receive an academic warning.

Students who have received an academic warning or have been placed on
academic probation are required to do the following:

  Meet with their academic advisor to identify problems encountered
  in the past semester and develop a learning contract with a plan for
  improvement;
  Meet with their Academic Advisor and/or the Academic Dean every
  three weeks during the following semester to review their learning
  progress in all courses;
  Earn a G.P.A. of at least 2.25 in the following semester.

Students may also be required to carry a limited course load.

ACADEMIC DISMISSAL
Students who do not meet the minimum G.P.A. (2.0 or higher) are subject
to academic dismissal. A student who has been academically dismissed
for the first time may appeal the dismissal. Appeals must be submitted in
writing to the Academic Dean. If the student’s appeal is granted, the stu-
dent will be reinstated for the following semester with conditions for aca-
demic improvement. If a student does not appeal, or the appeal is denied,
the student may apply for re-admission in subsequent semesters. Students
who have been dismissed a second time will not have the right to appeal
and will not be readmitted to UNYP.

All decisions of the Academic Dean are final and are not subject to appeal.
Students’ parents or guardians will be notified in writing if they are given
an academic warning, placed on probation or dismissed from UNYP.


                                                                               41
                  ACADEMIC POLICIES

      DROPPING OR ADDING COURSES
     Students may change their schedule by adding or dropping a course dur-
     ing the first ten days of the semester (the official course change period). No
     record of course enrollment will appear on the student’s transcript if the
     course(s) are dropped during the official course change period.

      FINAL EXAMINATIONS

     Comprehensive final examinations are required in all courses. Final exam-
     inations are given at the conclusion of the course. The time and place for
     all examinations will be posted at the beginning of each semester.

     An unexcused absence from any final examination may result in a failing
     grade for that course. A student who has an excused absence from a final
     examination may be permitted to take a make-up examination with the
     approval of the professor and the Academic Dean. All make-up examina-
     tions must be taken within three weeks of the original final examination
     date.

      GRADE CHANGES
     All instructors must submit signed copies of the final grades to the
     Registrar’s Office within one week of the final examination.

     A reported grade may be changed only if an error has been made in
     computing or recording a student’s grade. The instructor must submit,
     in writing, a documentation of such an error(s) to the Academic Dean for
     approval within one week after the beginning of the following semester.
     When a question arises concerning a possible error in a grade reported by
     an instructor who is no longer teaching at UNYP, the Academic Advisor
     and the Academic Dean will take joint responsibility for determining the
     appropriate grade and authorizing, if necessary, any changes.

 ACADEMIC POLICIES

 DEAN’S LIST
Placement on the Dean’s List in any semester is reserved for full-time stu-
dents who complete twelve or more credits in a semester with a semester
G.P.A. of 3.50 or higher, and who have no repeat or failing grades for that
semester. A student placed on the Dean’s list may qualify for the Academic
Excellence scholarships for a reduction in tuition for the following semes-
ter.


 STUDENT ‘INDEX’
At the beginning of the students’ first academic year, they will receive a
Student “Index”. This document will function as the students’ record of
the grades received for each course taken during their four years of study
at UNYP. At the end of each course, the instructor will enter the student’s
grade into the index, and sign their name next to the entered grade. This
index will also serve as a student identification card.


 TRANSCRIPTS
Unofficial transcripts may be picked up in person by the student at the
Registrar’s Office approximately three weeks after the final exam period.
Official UNYP transcripts must be requested by the student in writing and
the request submitted to the Registrar’s Office. Under no circumstance will
grades be released over the telephone or copies of grade reports given to
other individuals (except as noted in the section titled Confidentiality).



 CONFIDENTIALITY AND STUDENT RECORDS
No information or document referring to a student’s academic or personal
life will be released by UNYP except under the following conditions:
1. A student may waive this provision by signing the appropriate section
of the Academic Contract, in which case his/her parents or legal guardians
will receive copies of the student’s grade reports.
2. A student may submit written and signed requests to forward Official
UNYP Transcripts to named individuals, employers, or institutions.
3. Copies of letters notifying a student of an Academic Warning, Academic
Probation, or Dismissal will be sent to his/her parents or legal guardians.

                                                                              43
                  ACADEMIC POLICIES
      ACADEMIC HONESTY
     Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of honesty at
     UNYP. All homework assignments, projects, papers and examinations
     submitted in a course are expected to be students’ own work.

     Cheating, plagiarims, forgery and bribery are serious offences, and stu-
     dents found guilty of any form of academic dishonesty are subject to dis-
     ciplinary action, including dismissal from the University. All students will
     be asked to sign the UNYP Honor Code and to agree to act in accordance
     with these academic regulations.

      WHAT UNYP CONSIDERS CHEATING:
     The student is considered to be cheating if:
      A student uses some sort of “cheatsheet” (tahak) or some other form of
      printed material to assist him/her in writing answers to a test.
      During a test, a student copies answers from another student’s test.
      During a test, a student willingly provides another student with
      answers to the test: verbal, written form, hand signals, or by any
      other means.
      A student provides other students with advance copies of test questions
      before the test is administered to those other students.
      A student intimidates a fellow student for answers to test questions
      before or during a test.
      A student uses a mobile phone to communicate answers by SMS.

      PENALTIES FOR CHEATING
     First offense: Any student observed cheating during a test will automati-
     cally receive an “F” for the course. The name of the student will be report-
     ed to their Academic Advisor and the Academic Dean. A student whose
     answers indicate that he/she cheated during a test shall also receive a
     grade “F” for the course.
     Second offense: If a student who has cheated once before is caught cheat-
     ing again, that student will be expelled from UNYP.

 ACADEMIC POLICIES
 WHAT UNYP CONSIDERS PLAGIARISM:

Plagiarism is the representation, intentional or unintentional, of someone
else’s work or ideas as one’s own. If students have any questions about
what constitutes plagiarism, it is their responsibility to clarify the definition
by conferring with their professor, Academic Advisor and/or a member of
the English Faculty. Students’ should also take great care to distinguish
their own ideas, opinions and information from primary and secondary
sources, including the Internet.
Plagiarism includes:
   Copying, in whole or part, someone else’s essay, assignment,
   paper, and/or project.
   Copying material from the Internet.
   Repeating passages from books or other texts without including the
   proper references, citations and/or quotation marks.
   Copying material from any source and passing it off as one’s own
   work.


 PENALTIES FOR PLAGIARISM
If a student plagiarizes in a class, the student will automatically receive an
“F” for the course. If a student who has plagiarized once before is caught
plagiarizing again, that student will be expelled from UNYP.


 FORGERY AND BRIBERY
Forgery is defined as the alteration of UNYP forms, documents, or records,
or the signing of such forms or documents by someone other than the
proper authorized person. Bribery is the attempt to influence the actions
or decisions of any University official, faculty member, or employee
having any evaluation authority or official record-keeping responsibil-
ity, by the offering or giving of anything of value.


 PENALTY FOR FORGERY OR BRIBERY:
Any student who commits forgery or bribery will be expelled immediately
from UNYP. Students expelled due to forgery or bribery forfeit the right to
an appeal and will be denied readmission.




                                                                                    45
                  ACADEMIC POLICIES

      ATTENDANCE
     Regular attendance and active participation in class are an essential part
     of learning and academic success. No absences will exempt a student
     from the completion of assigned classwork. All excessive absences will be
     reported to the students’ Academic Advisor and the Academic Dean.



      BEHAVIOR STANDARDS
     Students are expected to observe all rules and regulations of UNYP gov-
     erning student behavior and conduct, and are expected at all times to
     behave with the dignity befitting a student. The use of mobile phones
     is prohibited in all classrooms, labs and the library. Smoking, the use or
     possession of alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs and other dangerous sub-
     stances are prohibited on the UNYP campus. Failure to observe these rules
     and regulations will result in disciplinary action, including dismissal with-
     out financial refund. All students are required to sign a code of conduct
     which details all university rules and regulations.

                 STUDENT MEMORIES

     I remember when I was 10 years old in Croatia and after school came to see
     my grandparents. After lunch, my grandfather and I worked on my homework
     and he gave me this valuable advice. He said that if I ever want to accomplish
     anything in my life, education is the path I must take. At that age I thought
     it was funny, since the only things that occupied my mind were video games
     and movies. However, it was when I came to Prague that I understood the
     importance of his words.
     Four years ago, I decided to pack my bags and leave Croatia to study in
     Prague. During my four years of education in Prague, I have to say that I
     have learned a lot more than I have expected. Apart from the education I have
     received I have also learned and shared different cultural values in everyday
     life. Studying in Prague at a multicultural university gives us an opportunity
     to re-experience our own culture better and to understand how other people
     see us.
     Today, people often ask me why I chose to study in Prague. I have no simple
     answer to that question, but I know I can always tell them that the experience
     I went through changed me and I have become a person that my grandfather
     would be proud of.
                                                         Nikola Jellačic, Croatia
                                                           UNYP Class of 2002

     UNYP offers me a unique opportunity to study with an outstanding interna-
     tional faculty that expects high academic standards in the classroom. I have
     benefited from my studies at UNYP immensely, because professors motivated
     me to study hard. They expect us to approach every problem and idea inde-
     pendently and creatively, while they emphasize our critical, analytic, and
     interpretive skills. Their exceptional instruction combined with individual
     attention provides the best education to create truly independent thinkers.

 STUDENT MEMORIES

I don’t regret my decision to come to UNYP for a minute. I knew I would get
a quality education at a reasonable price. The only problem I have had since I
came to Prague is that I don’t want to leave! I love it!
                                         Simon Stastny, New York, U.S.A.

After graduating from high school, I had a couple of options to choose from,
but UNYP was the only one that offered me what I was looking for. It offers
a high-level education with an American style of teaching, which I consider
the best and most effective method of teaching. In addition, I wanted to have
a degree that would be recognized in India and anywhere else in the world.
                                                    Pushpa Chhokar, India

I spent a year in the United States studying at Palmer High School in Alaska.
While I was there, I heard about UNYP and decided to attend this university
for several reasons. First of all, I have always wanted to study business, and
UNYP has this area of study. Secondly, I wanted to continue my studies at
an English-speaking university so that I could further improve my English.
Another reason is that I like the American style of education and teaching,
and now I can find this at UNYP. Finally, I wanted to study in Prague. It
is an awesome city with a long and rich history. There are colorful clubs,
pubs, and restaurants and many concerts and festivals. I definitely think that
Prague is one of the best places in the world for me to study.

New York is a state, above all, of enormous contrasts and staggering variety. Its diversity is mirrored in the design
of its State University system – a network of advanced education tailored to meet the myriad needs of people it
serves. There is almost no aspect of New York’s life that is not being taught or researched at the State University
of New York. All institutions or aspects of campus life at each college is highlighted in the regional presentation
of the University, affording a brief insight into the many different contributions – educational cultural, athletic
                               39�          and public service – which the State University is making in communi-
