HARRISON, N.Y. -- Purchase College in Harrison was ranked the tenth-best drama school in the world by the Hollywood Reporter.

In the magazine's May 30 ranking of the world's top 25 drama schools, Purchase came just behind Northwestern University and the National Institute of Dramatic Arts. The ranking was determined through a poll of casting directors around the world.

"The style these actors have is unique," Monika Mikkelsen of the Casting Society of America told the Hollywood Reporter.

Alumni of Purchase College's drama school include Melissa Leo, Edie Falco, Parker Posey and Stanley Tucci. Click here to see the story from the Hollywood Reporter.
