Scholarships: Although I have appealed for more financial aid, I still do not have enough to start the semester after taking out my maximum amount of loans. I am short over $5,000 and only make $8,000 a year.

Campus Dining: Campus dining is overpriced and not very good.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There's definitely a higher ratio of guys than girls, which kind of sucks.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is lacking. There's about 6 restaurants and then a couple of pizzerias and some fast food places, but, that's about it. Might not seem lacking to someone from a small town, but, if you're from a city, you'll miss certain foods pretty quick.

Off-Campus Housing: The prices are to be expected in a community with 4 universities. Basically, they know college students are looking for a place off campus and can get away with charging quite a bit. For the most part, the apartments are very outdated, but, if you look hard enough, you can find something decent. You'll get what you pay for.

Computers: Wireless access is lacking, but as far as computer availability goes, if you need one you'll always be able to find one and get your work done on campus if you don't have one of your own--which would be rare or unseen here.

2 College Junior

Weather: Being up in the Adirondack region, the winter weather is pretty intense. If you're not used to it, it can seem pretty harsh, and school is not cancelled for it.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Obviously, as far as the school goes, no illegal drug use is allowed and alcohol in relation to minors is not allowed. As far as peer pressure goes, it's a personal choice, with nobody being treated differently for their choices. Everybody looks out for one another in some way.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Being part of the Greek Life on campus myself, I guess I would be pretty biased, but, overall, I think plugging yourself into some form of community while on campus, is a positive thing.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process here is a positive one. The school is willing to work with you and you can ultimately get some form of aid if you apply.

Diversity: As far as ethnicity goes, the school is somewhat lacking, however, as far as international students go, the school ranks strong.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Potsdam is a very small town. The community is rural and is not the ideal place for someone seeking a vibrant college life, however, that isn't necessary to complete one's degree successfully.

Academics: Professors are very helpful, and the class sizes are a decent size, which means that time with a professor is possible.
