3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wish there was more to do near the school, but the school itself isn't that bad. It's a good size with varying difficulty based on class and teacher.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Binghamton University provides students with a rich educational experience, attention from professors and teacher assistants, and numerous student-run clubs and activities. Students and professors and kind, caring, helpful, and passionate about studying. Many resources are available to help students live comfortably on and off campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Food is alright, night life is really good and fun. Classes are challenging yet manageable

Overall Experience: Your experience directly correlates with what you put in, and I think that Binghamton offers enough resources to allow you to become a more balanced and mature person if you are willing to put yourself out there

Overall Experience: campus life is great, multiple extracurricular activities, the option of working in various labs or even starting your own lab is great for science majors. I would 100% choose binghamton again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As soon as I stepped on to campus I felt at home. Some classes are large, but the professors are always open to give extra help during office hours. It's a friendly and welcoming environment that invites students to explore themselves and the world around them. There is always something to go do or a new club to join.

Off-Campus Housing: It's little far from the campus. But there are some good student apartments.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Much better than on-campus housing. Although you do have to search for the right house, on campus housing is ridiculously overpriced.

Party Scene: Partying is essential what you do at Binghamton. Otherwise, you'll have nothing to do lol.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The places here are great! Lost Dog, Thai Time, Burger Mondays. All reasonably priced and super delicious.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus strictness entirely depends upon the RAs in the dorms. If you have an easygoing RA, you can kind of do whatever you want. If not, well...

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process is easy if you know how to fill out FAFSA.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining halls are cheap, but not worth the money if you think about it. Since we pay such a large amount for meal plan, only 1/3 of it actually goes to our meal dollars. It is an enormous fee for Sodexo, but gives the students a small portion to actually spend on food.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are very run down while others are extremely new and have great facilities. It's like two different worlds on each side of campus.

4 College Student

Party Scene: There are parties every weekend and people get to relax.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is far. we have to drive to the restaurants.

4 College Student

Administration: There is chemical free dorms. We cannot drink or smoke in there.

4 College Student

Scholarships: I just need to fill in FAFSA and TAP on time and I'm good to go.

3 College Student

Campus Food: Several dining halls. Many choices that we can choose.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The campus housing is nice. There are several communities that students can choose.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is great...after you lived on campus for at least 2 years, long enough to get sick of restrictions. It's pricey but definitely worth your time. there are cheap options, renting a house. But then you need to worry about utilities and what not. Go to a student apartments its worth the price.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: SODEXNO! If you decide to come to Binghamton in 10 years from now when sodexo's contract is up again. RIOT like there is no tomorrow! Get them off campus!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: it isn't a strong point here. You don't have to be in one.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are all over, it's pretty cool!

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.
