Overall Experience: Some professors genuinely care about the well being of there students but some could care less. The science classes are HARD and most of them have at least 400 students. Be prepared to study independently.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In my opinion there are a few things here that need improvement and I feel like some classes are unnecessarily hard for no reason.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers are experienced in their fields and the TAs know what they're doing. Everyone has a sufficient amount of office hours. Fellow students are freindly and helpful. The food is fair for a college campus. I feel very safe on campus, and there's blue lights everywhere you turn

Health & Safety: There is the emergency blue light system that you can always go to.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most classes, unless a lecture, are no more than 30ish students.

Campus Housing: The newer housing options (Newing, Dickinson, Mountainview) are better than the older options (CIW, Hinman).

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center is really great and helpful. They really want students to succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not all professors are great but considering the fact that our tuition is so cheap, we get what we pay for.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being part of a community is great and it's a good way to get involved. Cost is a bit high though so most people move off campus after sophomore year.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks do their own thing and do not exclude others if they are not Greek. Greeks and non-Greeks are fairly well integrated.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is full of very intelligent people but no one is overly competitive. Peers are almost always willing to help you and to collaborate. Everyone is friendly and creates a comfortable environment.

Party Scene: There is always at least every weekend. The bars sometimes have good events during the weekends. It is really easy to get downtown and party. The buses run till 3 am and there are always cabs available to take you places.

Party Scene: There are always parties. You can have lots of fun at the them. I dont think they are that great but you can have some fun in them.

5 College Junior

Academics: I think the academics is really good. The classes are challenging and if you actually pay attention throughout the semester you can learn many new things. Most professors are willing to help and give life advise. The classes depending on your major change in workload. The study areas are always pack during finals week.

Diversity: The school could be more diverse but I think its somewhat diverse. For a lot of people is pretty diverse because they do not come for places where so much more diversity is present in the classroom.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: When it comes to drugs, sometimes late at night you can smell people smoking marihuana and on weekends you can see people drunk.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
