Binghamton is not a school that will hold your hand through the college experience. If you arrive here expecting to find your place while sitting in your dorm room, then this is not the school for you. You must make an effort and be proactive by joining clubs and getting involved in your academic, social, extracurricular, and professional life. Binghamton doesn't win recognition for the most beautiful campus, have a huge football program, or predictable weather, but Binghamton has everything you will need to make yourself feel at home. 

Binghamton is a mid-size school that rests upon a foundation of balance. If you are looking for the atmosphere of a large party- or athletics-oriented school or the hands-on attention of a small private school, you will not find what you are looking for at Binghamton. There are moments, though, when you can experience the benefits of going to a larger school as well as a smaller private school. Even though the basketball team isn't very good, there are times when the student section will be filled and cheering for the team, even though they're losing. A required "gen ed" class will be made to feel more intimate when the professor makes himself available at any time to answer questions. What really makes Binghamton worth it is the people you will meet. You just have to be willing to make the effort to find them! Add to this the affordable price tag, and you have one of the best bargains around.
