I have decided that I need to go to College to get a job and I am wondering if anyone knows anything about colleges that offer learning and classes. Or a Yeshiva that is near close to a college.
Anyone know anything?April 1, 2014 1:29 am at 1:29 am #1010137
I think the mesivta of Boston is very close to Harvard. Check it out.
Likewise, there is a chabad yeshiva in New Haven that is near Yale.April 1, 2014 1:43 am at 1:43 am #1010138Sam2Participant
YU exists. Touro exists. Ner Yisrael has UMBC and Johns Hopkins nearby.

Popa – any idea how close the mesivta is to MIT’s campus?April 1, 2014 1:44 am at 1:44 am #1010140
Why end the thread?
Ner Yisroel does have UMBC and John Hopkin nearby. But it also has Georgetown, no?????April 1, 2014 1:45 am at 1:45 am #1010141
Who cares. Real men go to Harvard.April 1, 2014 1:51 am at 1:51 am #1010142
yeah but MIT is better in robotics. Anyways anyone know about anything near Stanford, Northwester, or Carnegie Mellon?
Sam2 – Aside from YU am I able to get a good job after attending any of these places? (only reason I am not saying this about YU is because they are a top 50 school)
Popa – Georgetown is in DC, Ner is in Baltimore 40 miles awayApril 1, 2014 1:52 am at 1:52 am #1010143

Not to mention that one can get a fully accredited degree from any of several distance education programs run by public universities (University College at University of Maryland, Empire State College in New York, etc.).April 1, 2014 3:18 am at 3:18 am #1010148EpisParticipant
There many yeshivos in flatbush which aloow college at night.April 1, 2014 3:19 am at 3:19 am #1010149👑RebYidd23Participant
But what abut the ladies?April 1, 2014 3:36 am at 3:36 am #1010150
Im not really looking to go to college in the New York area and if I got into universities like Stanford and Carnegie Mellon why would I want to go to places I have never heard of like Empire State College?
but now that you mentioned University of Maryland, does anyone know how far silver spring is from the main campus?April 1, 2014 11:21 am at 11:21 am #1010151Mr SfardiParticipant
If you want to stay in the NY area, you could try NYUApril 1, 2014 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #1010152
UTAH: Maryland’s University College is largely online, though you can take classes at any other accredited colleges for subject you prefer not to do online. It is part of the University of Maryland, and the degree says “University of Maryland”.April 1, 2014 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #1010153TheGoqParticipant
sem613 THE!! Chicago Yeshiva!? ummm hello its Chicago its not Tuscaloosa there are several Yeshivas in Chicago yeesh.April 1, 2014 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #1010154sem613Participant
goq, chicago is famous for the telshe yeshiva, where I’m from, thats what puts chicago on the Jewish map, because that was the original one thereApril 1, 2014 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #1010155🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Goq – funny you should say that. I was gonna post that I didn’t know we had one.April 1, 2014 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #1010156
Back to the original question:
The only colleges that offer Torah learning are Touro and Yeshiva University. Both are quite expensive. Yeshiva University is a reputable second tier university (places such as NYU and Columbia are top tier), Touro is accredited by much less respected.
Every yeshiva is near colleges. America has a system in which colleges abound. Arranging a learning seder while going college can be a problem but is possible.
If you goal is to continue learning in a regular way while getting an academic degree, focus on distance education.
Don’t look at “going to college” as a path to parnassah. Pick a parnassah, and then pick a college to get there.April 1, 2014 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #1010157benignumanParticipant
There is no Yeshiva in Pittsburgh (where Carnegie Mellon is). However there is a Lakewood Kollel where one can pretty easily get a chavrusa for night seder.
The University of Maryland at College Park is 15-20 minutes from the Yeshiva of Greater Washington. A substantial number of the Yeshiva students also take classes at Maryland.April 1, 2014 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #1010158Sam2Participant
Utah: It is much easier out of YU, but you can get a job out of Touro. It’s a less valuable degree, sure, but it is still a degree that will give you a leg up over anyone without it.
Silver Spring is about a 15-minute drive from UM. I highly, highly suggest that if you go to UM, you live in the Jewish community in Silver Spring (either Kemp Mill or Woodside) and not on campus.
Akuperma isn’t wrong, though. Many Yeshivos throughout the country have decent colleges within driving distance. Find a college that could work for you, make sure there is a Yeshiva that fits you nearby, and just go for that.April 1, 2014 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #1010159joshmoMember
U. Maryland is 20 minutes from silver spring. If you’re interested, the Yeshiva of Greater Washington has a Yeshiva Gedolah where many people have learning seder during the day and then attend college classes in afternoons/evenings. Go to yeshiva.eduApril 1, 2014 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #1010160ddParticipant
Carnegie Mellon is walking distance from the main Jewish neighborhood in Pittsburgh.April 1, 2014 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #1010161
Thanks for all the helpApril 1, 2014 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #1010162TheGoqParticipant
ok sem u are forgiven but please educate yourself before you speak, syag lol.April 2, 2014 12:33 am at 12:33 am #1010163RisingSun613Member
maybe look into the Ner Yisroel/ johns Hopkins programApril 2, 2014 1:18 am at 1:18 am #1010164
Im thinking that I would rather be in YU, I feel that it closer to what im looking for. But would like more information if anyone knows anything about yeshivas near StanfordApril 2, 2014 2:17 am at 2:17 am #1010165zahavasdadParticipant
The problem is many yeshivas make it almost impossible to attend yeshiva and college even if they are close by.
How many yeshivas have night seder so you can attend Brooklyn college as an example
