Greek Life: Greek Life is starting to become more positive at Binghamton. It is a small percentage, about 15%, but they hold many community service and philanthropy events to help out the community.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Unfortunately, there is not much school spirit when it comes to athletics here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Binghamton has a great reputation for being a SUNY. It is known as the "public Ivy" and has a decent reputation in the Greater New York City Area.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Decent greek life for social and community aspects. Around 15% of the campus is involved.

3 College Junior

Athletics: D1 programs but the teams aren't great. Lots of options for intramurals, club sports and a beautiful gym.

Academics: The workload can be a lot but it's worth it. Usually teachers give you an ample amount of work and you just have to complete it within a decent time-frame.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug use is kept to a minimum.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are always different and you can always choose which class size is comfortable for you. The quality of courses are great and the teachers are very supportive. There are so many different and unique courses you can choose from.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Alumni donate to our school because they see the value and quality Binghamton has put into their success. There are always job fairs and events that happen on campus to give students a chance to search for jobs and internships. Even if one were to miss a fair, they can easily go to the career center at our school and seek help from someone there.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've always felt safe on my campus. There has never been a time where I have even questioned my safety on campus. Binghamton University takes all necessary precautions to make sure every student is safe.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is different for everyone. I think the best options are Dickinson and CIW. They are close to the main parts of campus and their dining halls are the best. Hinman is only good if you're taking a lot of classes in the lecture halls or in the science buildings. Mountainview is good for the view. Newing is far away from mostly everything.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life helps people come together and celebrate unity. Non-Greeks enjoy Greeks because they are social and bring about fun things to engage in on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student athletes are some of the hardest working people on this campus. They work hard to be good role-models and motivators for everyone else. They maintain good grades to play sports and show school pride. Almost everyone comes out to support student athletes at their games because we appreciate their hard work and spirit.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, I've grown so much. I'm smarter than I was before and I have a lot of friends and teachers/staff who encourage me to be better. All of the students are unique and intelligent and the teachers care so much about the students and their success. I call my campus a home because everyone is so welcoming and the campus is beautiful. If I could choose my school again, I'd choose it 10 times over. Every experience I have are memorable ones and it's because Binghamton University is a great place with great people.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally love to be a part of the Greek Life, but like athletics, it does not control the campus. The attention is spread amongst all the clubs and organizations, not just Greek Life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The basketball team is great but it doesn't control the campus. People know how to balance both academics and athletics.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Binghamton, although its size, is actually pretty tight knit. It's easy to make friends and there are so many opportunities for you to succeed.

Party Scene: It's not guaranteed you'll have a great time every night but many people do.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are a ton of options, even if you're not involved in Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Overall it's challenging but not impossible, as long as you have a good work ethic.

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.
