Syracuse is a university of choices. SU has over 200 majors in nine undergraduate colleges, so you're bound to find some that are agreeable. A few of SU's schools are world-renowned: the SI Newhouse School of Public Communications, School of Management, and the School of Architecture are premiere programs that house some of the top professors in their specific field. Also, the School of Information Studies and Visual and Performing Arts hold high status, as well.
The faculty at SU is generally compliant with students' needs. All professors must hold office hours during the week, and most instructors conveniently hand out their home numbers, as well. If you make use of the availability of your professors, go to class, do your homework, and study for the big tests, and you should have no problem getting excellent grades. Most classes are interesting, but sometimes you'll get a class with those monotone, lengthy lectures and dread that two hours of rambling each week. Your consolation is that a decent number of professors post their lectures online and don't take attendance. There are the classes with somewhere around 15 to 20 people where you'll receive, more often than not, excellent teaching, and you'll come away with a whole new perspective. Either way, SU learning is quite a bit different-and better-than high school.
