3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: You can always grab a bite at a local place foe cheap- like pizza. You can also got to Wegman's or Walmart as well. If you really want to spend money, you can go to the Big Tree Inn which accepts meal plan, but is extremly over priced.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus security is aways around scouting people, whther it is early in the morning or late at night. You feel secure on campus, however many suggest using the buddy system for safety.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The social life in Geneseo is easy to manage, and always expanding. Many are friendly open people, and guys and girls interact based on their social circles. Many students also wear Geneseo-supporting clothes any day of the year.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Many students and members of the community attend the games- especially the Hockey Ice

Knights and womens soccer. These are the most popular, and the teams are known for their great performance.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is very close to on campus, as in right across the street. It is easily accesible and mnay students opt to live off campus.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity on campus is one of the best things about Geneseo! There are people from many different cultures, and each adds a unique flavor to the campus. As far as I've seen, the Geneseo community is very acepting and they embraces differences.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining halls are resonable, however somewhat over priced. The school allows you to keep track of meal plan and other balances (like the printer).The best place to go is South Side- Red Jacket Dining Hall. They have the best late night treats as well!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I applied and recieved very little aid. I had attended a community college before Geneseo, and I recieved much more there.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am part of Greek life by being in a Service Fraternity Alpha Phi Omega. The Greeak community does a lot to contribute to the Geneseo atmosphere. I love being part of APO because it is a great way to meet new people and provide service to others.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great experience for college students! Living in close quarters with perople you have never known is interesting, and good for the most part. The dorms a nice, but can be pretty far away in the snow! I lived on the "North Side" of campus and it was the furthest from any educational building. Great exercise though!

Off-Campus Dining: Great pizza places on Main Street. New European restaurant that's great. Two sub-par chinese food joints, but it's chinese food so it's hit or miss anyway. Uhots provides students with the Rochester-known Garbage Plate (look it up if you're unfamiliar) Great late night food. GFR is also fantastic for cheap, filling meals.

Off-Campus Housing: I did not live off campus, but in speaking with friends who did, they enjoyed the experience. Geneseo does offer Townhouses which resemble apartments, are fully furnished and awesome to live in. Very convenient.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Dorms can be hit or miss, depending on their age. The ISC for science students is FANTASTIC. Letchworth dining hall is getting a facelift and should be done within the next year, with Milne Library closely following suit. Classroom are small, but comfortable for the most part.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: GOLD program for leadership development is nationally recognized, music department is terrific as well. Research is also a big part of Geneseo academics with a day set aside for presentations.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Hockey is huge at Geneseo and we usually field a good team. Track is also exceptional with club Rugby being high up in strength of team as well. Sporting events are fun, some are obviously attended more than others.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I had a friend who received a full ride, I unfortunately can not recall how it came to be. Being a state school, scholarships are few and far between. However, being a state school the tuition is more than reasonable.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Was not part of Greek life, knew quite a few and were friends as well. Some houses were very nice, others, not so much. Social events can be sometimes exclusive. Depending on which Greek organization you join, your experience may differ.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Higher girl to guy ratio, good for people looking for a SO. Very friendly, easy to get along with others.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Did the common app, not much to it. Tour guides are very helpful and friendly.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Beautiful view of the Genesee Valley, great townies, local bars are great. An absolutely beautiful atmosphere. Wegmans is nearby, fan favorite.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Parking, drinking and drugs are the only real issue.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Fusion is really good, a bit of a wait with Lotus (stir fry) but worth it. MJ has good pasta, salad and sandwiches. Can't go wrong with Starbucks (pricey is all)

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Very diverse, people form around the world, many clubs can be joined as well to fit the interests of various groups.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The majority of my professors have been very helpful during office hours. The newest academic hall will be mostly for psychology majors which is a huge plus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The registration process is horrid. However, the professors challenge our minds and I receive a high-quality education.
