Cazenovia College is located in Madison County’s historic lakeside Village of Cazenovia, along U.S. Route 20 – a scenic byway commonly referred to as America’s Main Street or the road across America, which before the advent of the Erie Canal, was the major transportation artery across New York State.
In Cazenovia, a variety of restaurants, all within walking distance of the campus, offer casual and fine dining, as well as coffee, pizza and subs. Quaint shops, galleries and offices line Albany St. (Rt. 20), and provide all the goods and services necessary to college students.
East of Cazenovia is New York’s Central New York and Capital Regions, evoking the state’s pioneer history.
To the west, the City of Syracuse provides opportunities for social and cultural events. Beyond Syracuse is the Finger Lakes Region; the foothills of the Adirondacks rise just an hour north of Cazenovia, and to the south the rolling hills of New York’s farm country are home to several small ski areas.
