5 College Junior

Academics: Great academics. Registration is very easy. Im in the engineering school so my curriculum and courses are predetermined which is great. Workload is heavy yet manageable. Professors have been good for the most part. Students can often be found studying somewhere in Bartle all hours of the night.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are many international students and Binghamton as a whole is very diverse. They tend to stick together although I would say they are widely accepted on campus. A large portion of the student body is jewish, with their participation varying.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There isn't much pressure to do drugs here, but a good number of students definitely have at some point. Students smoke in the nature preserve. A lot of students drink, it's not unusual to go downtown on a weeknight. I know some kids who have been busted for drinking alcohol or having a party in their dorm, but its not very common.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've thoroughly enjoyed most of the courses I have taken at Binghamton. Some introductory classes are known as "weed out" classes and are difficult to do well in. Once you get past these, courses are great. All the Professors I've had really cared about their students.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Earning a degree from Binghamton, especially in the engineering school, school of management, and nursing school are extremely valuable. A degree in the other schools are also quite valuable as well, it depends on the major within those schools. Binghamton is always holding career fairs and providing students with opportunities to connect with alumni or potential future employers. The career center is awesome.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel so safe on campus at all times. I can walk anywhere on campus alone at night and feel safe.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most on campus housing is updated, clean, spacious and better than most other college dorm rooms I've seen. Hinman and CIW are the only remaining typical college dorm rooms, but even these communities are going to be updated in the next few years. Housing sign ups are now very early into first semester which doesn't give freshman a lot of time to figure out who their friends really are and who they'll want to live with almost an entire year after signing up. I lived in Mountainview and the atmosphere was great. On a sunny day you'll find everyone out on the fields playing games or just laying out, enjoying the nice day. This was true for all the other communities as well. One night there was an eclipse and you found everyone sitting out on the field with blankets enjoying each others company.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I would say the fraternities are not your typical frat stereotype, but are fun. Hazing is pretty harsh. Sororities are mostly jappy, but there are some good ones. Most greeks join for genuine sisterhood/brotherhood rather than for a social status.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Binghamton is a Division 1 school, but the teams are not that good. Binghamton also lacks a football team which hurts school spirit.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Binghamton is the best choice I could've made when picking a school. The academics are top notch, the buildings are always being updated and improved. The dorm rooms are extremely nice for a college. Binghamton attracts all kinds of students so it's easy for most to find their niche. The party scene is awesome, Binghamton students definitely work hard and play hard. Binghamton has become my home away from home and I couldn't ask for a better experience

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks are well respected and represented.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of clubs and athletics

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my time at this school and the classes are challenging but not too difficult and the professors really know so much about the topics they are teaching.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel like unless you are majoring in something like business or finance, the jobs and internships are not very plentiful.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel as though the campus is safe enough but not a ton of security guards or safety lights.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Definitely enjoy the cleanliness, but the dorms are pretty cramped.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely a way bigger deal than I ever expected, having judged by the numbers that I saw before coming to the school, and I feel like I'm a bit disappointed in how cliquey it really is.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I wish sports were made out to be a bigger deal because there really is not a ton of school spirit due to the lack of attendance at sports games.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is incredible and I enjoy and appreciate the learning experience I'm being offered.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses in Binghamton University are of just the right difficulty.They are enough to keep you busy but not too much as to keep you stressed at all times. The professors seem to be knowledgeable on the topics they teach. Their eagerness to help out the students varies depending on the professor, but most of the time one will get the assistance they need either through the professors or through TA/tutors. There is free tutoring available on campus which is a big help for students. Overall the education quality here is good. The intro classes are usually huge, exceeding 200 students, but the higher level classes have fewer students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school holds a job and internship fair every semester where students can go and learn about the opportunities available within their area of interest. This fair can be a fine opportunity to build connections as there are representatives from different organizations to speak to the students. The career center also holds other great opportunities for students to explore and learn.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Never heard of a robbery on campus. People do get reckless on the weekends when they are drunk.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus has it's pros and cons. Pros include, proximity to the lecture halls, dining halls and library. You don't have to clean your dorms since the cleaners come in every week. Living on campus exposes you to new people therefore helping to make new friends. Cons include, housing sign ups, and ending up with a not-so-compatible roommate.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek students host parties on weekends which become a big hit among the students. Non-Greeks often attend the Greek parties but are otherwise indifferent to the Greeks.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Binghamton University provides the students with a good education. The workload here is just right. Students enjoy the classes and professors. Everyone is willing to help each other out which creates a friendly atmosphere. There are tons of opportunities for students to get involved in around campus no matter what their interests are.

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.
