4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I look forward to going back to school when I'm away and really feel like it was a good fit.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Binghamton is regarded as the top public school in New York so graduating from there holds value.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I personally know no one that feels unsafe on campus. The blue light system could use more lights but it's great otherwise.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in one of the newer communities and love it. I've lived there both years and would never move out the biggest issue is cost.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are a lot of sororities and fraternities but they are not a big deal on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a good fan base for not fantastic D1 teams

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would choose this school again but only academically

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have not had any personal security and safety concerns, and generally feel quite safe on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of the student resources centers are very helpful. It is hard to find internships and part-time jobs, especially in specific fields, and networking goes a long way.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Life on campus is fun and easy, though some of the dorms are quite far from the usual classrooms. The older residence halls look out-dated but are still functional, whereas the newer dorms are modern and up-to-date.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Binghamton University offers a large variety of everything, no matter what you are interested in, be it sports, the arts, languages, science, and so much more. Coming to Binghamton without a real plan, like as so many students do, is perfectly fine, as you are very likely to find something you love at this college.

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.

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.

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.
