4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Have not had to transfer any credits.

I've had no problems signing up for the classes I've wanted / needed. It's been a great experience so far.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would most definitely do it all over again. I've got awesome professors, the location in the Adirondack Mountains is awesome... This school is where I belong. I love to be outdoors, I love to be able to snowboard on White Face Mountain, we can go skating at the Olympic Park in Lake Placid... if you just step out of your comfort zone and spend time looking around, you'll love this place.

I think the location is what makes our school unique. Our campus is part of the ADIRONDACK PARK!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small and the professors know you by name. I've never had a professor not be available if I needed some extra help or a question answered. The quality of the courses are great... I walk away from most of my classes feeling like I really am going to do well in my chosen field. The hands-on experience of field work, the cool things in lab... it's a great way to learn. Way better than a lecture class of 100 + students!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know that when I graduate with my Bachelor's degree, I will be able to find a job in my field. This school fits my needs, my career path and all of my professors I interact with daily see the same thing I see.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Professor / student relationship is great... if there's a problem with an assignment all you have to do is email. They're usually pretty good about emailing back, OR actually stopping you on campus (in the classroom or out) to see if you're doing okay. Sometimes the connection isn't the greatest, but it works.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: We have a diverse group on our campus, and it's a small campus. All of my interactions have been decent - my friends range from the guy that looks like Paul Bunyan and wants to live on a mountain away from everyone to the girl that looks like she walked off the runway and wants to spend the rest of her life in Paris.

We have a lot of clubs, we have a chapel on campus, we are a pretty tolerant student body.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: As I get closer to my senior year in college, I've started going to the career fairs the school offers. There seems to be a high placement rate for PSC students in my field. I've talked to a few alumni who have degrees in Environmental Science , and a couple of them have found placement in their field immediately upon graduation.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: PSC had exactly the major I wanted - and the classes are pretty interesting that go along with the major. Registering for my classes was easy, no problems. The work load is getting a little heavier as I head into my junior year, but I know in the end it will be worth it. It has to be.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Our classes and labs are pretty hands-on. Lots of outside "field work" where you have to snow-shoe out, professors and advisors are always available... rate of placement is high for a student from PSC in the Environmental Science world.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There is always something going on with campus / student activities. Because PSC is so far away from any towns / cities, they keep us busy with all kinds of things from poker nights to comedians.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I had the option to choose from 3 different math classes or to do an independent study. There is always options!!

Overall Experience: There are so many cool things about this school, one thing that really pops into my head is having the lake right on campus. We can canoe and kayak as much as we want!

Overall Experience: Class sizes are 14 students to 1 teacher. The setting is very personal and you're not known as a number AT ALL.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: There are a lot of options on campus for you to choose from when it comes to studying and getting extra help. All teachers are willing to help you if you are having a hard time. If you would prefer though, we do have the tutoring center and separate studies with the teachers assistants.

Campus Resources: There is always something going on. We always have activities for people to take part in. Athletics are a tight knit group of people but everyone is friendly. This campus has an "at home" feel. Ive never felt so at home, away from home!

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For me personally, I've only had an okay experience course-work wise because I thought that I was really going to enjoy my major, and it turns out that I want to major in something that this school doesn't offer. That being said, there is a diversity of classes within the natural resources based majors, so if you know that this is definitely what you want to do, you will love the variety of courses offered. Also, the class sizes are pretty small, so you can get to know your professors well which is nice.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree here is really what you make of it, and you have to put in a lot of effort to be adequately prepared for your career field. This is true to most schools, but what I'm saying is you will not be prepared by coursework alone. Definitely read as much surplus material as you can for each of your classes, because sometimes the professors don't go into enough depth about the subject. Most majors require an internship, but if yours doesn't, I would definitely recommend doing one anyway.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: The lack of diversity among the student body is probably the worst thing about this school. The campus is predominately white and male. Also, there aren't that many different types of people, or a diversity of interests. Many typical students are very into hunting, fishing, camo and the confederate flag; or there very into weed, tie dye and climbing mountains. Obviously there are groups of people who have other interests, but it's a typical rural school. Unfortunately, the sense of racism and sexism is pretty strong at this school, and some of the students here aren't very open to diversity.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The people at financial aid have always been very helpful for me, however I've heard that its not always the case for others. I think the tuition itself isn't that steep considering that it is a private school, but the fees for housing and food are definitely overpriced. Luckily, almost everyone who applies here gets a decent scholarship automatically, and they have a lot of scholarship opportunities.
