Amity Education Group Acquires 170-acre Campus in New York


Amity has acquired a 170-acre waterfront campus from St. John's University located in Oakdale, Long Island, New York. The property consists of 11 buildings with views of the Great South Bay. 
     At the centre of the campus is the Georgian-style Bourne Mansion, built in 1897, which was the waterfront estate of Frederick Bourne, president of Singer Sewing Machine Co.
     St. John’s University sold its 170-acre waterfront campus in Oakdale to the private, nonprofit international education group for $22.5 million announced last month.
     Amity Education Group, which operates Amity University, one of the largest multi-campus colleges in India, purchased the property and has assumed control of the land.
     According to Dr Aseem Chauhan, Chancellor, Amity, "The Amity New York campus will be a platform for research collaboration, faculty and student exchange programs as well as innovation and entrepreneurship development between institutions in the US and India. The campuses will act as a bridge allowing people and organizations to connect and communicate between the US, India and other countries. This includes the large Indian diasporas, which is keen to further its bonds with India."
