4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: From what I saw and heard from students, SUNY ESF's campus is safe and secure. I was informed about the police department at both ESF's campus and Syracuse University's campus.

Campus Housing: Centennial Hall, SUNY ESF's residential building, is absolutely amazing. Staying the night in one of the dorm rooms was a great experience. Centennial Hall is a nice and well kept building, and everyone seems to take care of it. All options seem really good, like double rooms, triple rooms, and the double suites. Everyone seems to get along with eachother because they socialize and always hang out in each others rooms and socialize. I really look forward to dorming there in the fall.

Overall Experience: I will be attending SUNY ESF as a freshman in the Fall of 2016; however, I have already fallen in love with the school. At first, just reading about it online did not seem to pique my interest. I knew I wanted to major in Chemistry but I was focused more on getting accepted to other schools like Stony Brook University. That was until the first weekend of April 2016 when I attended ESF's Explore Your World Bus Trip. There, we arrived at ESF and spent the day taking tours, exploring, and mingling with other accepted students who were also considering ESF. My favorite experience was participating in an evening scavenger hunt with some friends I had made. We even stayed over for one night there. I loved the overall vibe I got from the entire campus, the students included. I am certain that SUNY ESF is the right school for me. Ultimately, I'm glad I did the bus trip; if I did not, I would not be going there in the fall.

Greek Life: doesnt affect me or the campus

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We are right next to Syracuse, so the sports are the best because we do all of their sport things, so its a huge sport school and if you're into that then there are loads of games and clubs and varsity sports to try out. the gym is always open to ESF students too

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: love it would choose it all over again

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of kids on campus smoke or drink alcohol. Especially in the graveyard at night. But there isn't really a lot of pressure on people who don't do any of that to start doing it, because the people here are also kind and not jerks

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My school has those blue light things and it's very easy to go to campus police.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's very wonderful and I love the school I attend.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm is really nice, but I'm excited to live off campus next year and cook for myself.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The people there are very personable and lovely and I couldn't have chosen a better first college

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There isn't really a lot of Greek life. There's only one Greek society at our school and it has a few members, but no one treats anyone differently. It's not really seen as a different social scene.

There is a Greek street, but that mostly belongs to the Syracuse University Greek students, with one house being the exception for our students

2 College Freshman

Athletics: My school is focused on education, and has little involvement and participation in sports. The school is meant to being science oriented, and therefore isn't really lacking much anyway. However there are sports teams for those who wish to be on a sports team, and due to my schools close association with Syracuse University, our students are allowed to use their gym and training facilities to the same extent that an SU student would be able to.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The education at this school is top notch. When employers hear that someone has an ESF degree, they know that they're very qualified for a position in the scientific field.

However, with the courses being so rigorous, there is, at least for me, very little time to focus on much else. Clubs or other organizations are hard to fit into a schedule on top of the classroom, homework, and in my case, work-study time.

That being said, I'm only a freshman, which at this school requires the most amount of work to get through. Upperclassmen seem to have more free time on their hands.
