2 College Freshman

Scholarships: They really give little to no financial aid at this school it's not good

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food got really repetitive as the year went on.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are really quite good. It was built in the last 3 years so it was relatively new, and had lots of friendly people in it. I made a lot of good friends and had some great experiences playing FIFA in the dorms. I wish I had decided to live in the dorms next year.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got exactly the amount of aid that i needed and it is automatically applied to my account. I almost don't have to worry about it at all.

Campus Food: the food at Binghamton is decent. there is definitely a variety both among and within dining halls that makes it easy to get what you want. However, the food isn't really all that good, so when possible, most students will get their food elsewhere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Binghamton University has some of the best student housing that I've seen. A lot of my friends at other schools complain about a lack of space or an old dorm while at Binghamton, 3 of the 5 residential communities were built within the last decade and all of them offer ample space with cable tv and a cleaning service that comes once a week; we also have free laundry.

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are nice, but some are far from classes.

Campus Housing: I lived in Hinman College my first semster, and I plan to live there again for my sophomore year. Even though I orginally did not have Hinman as my top choice for housing, I immediately fell in love with the resident community. Hinman is the cheapest resident hall, and its definitely worth it. It may have the oldest dorms on campus and not the most modern look, but it is very homey and comfortable. I love how in the suites, you have share with 4-6 people instead of going into the hallway. In addition, its a small community, and you end up building relationships with people on the floor. The RAs are pretty cool too. Also, the food is decent too. The Night Owl is great ! Night Owl is the grill at night, you must try a cheeseburger quesadilla !

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always something to attend.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Denny's, Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, IHop, McDonalds, Burger King, Chinese Buffet, Indian food

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's good that they enforce rules!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am in an Education Opportunity Program (EOP), so I do receive extra financial aid then the typical student because of my low-income, but of course it is never enough. I still have to take out loans and all that. I am appreciative of Binghamton's cost. For a public primer school, the cost of it is affordable to other schools even if I did not have EOP.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: In general the dining hall foods are ok. Best dining hall is Mountainview. Since most of the athletes live there, they have the freshest fruits and variety of fruits. Also, there chicken tenders are great. Mountainview's Night Owl have smoothies and milkshakes. C4 night owl sells ice cream. Hinman night owl is great !!! Besides dining hall foods, the Marketplace can be pricey, but you have the option to use meal plan or cash or credit card without extra cost. The Marketplace food is pretty good. Check out Red Mango, the pasta place, and subs !

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Good housing complexes right near campus and downtown that the bus goes to frequently

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
