ESF is not incredibly interested in collegiate and club sports. However, we are connected to Syracuse University, one of the largest colleges in New York state. ESF students often participate in sports ant SU, where they have access to indoor and outdoor football and soccer fields, swimming pools, gyms, lacrosse teams, cross country and track teams, etc. You name it, SU has a team for it. Even Quiddich!

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.

My school is unique because it is a specialized school. Everyone that attends the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry is like-minded and environmentally focused. At Accepted Students Day the atmosphere was friendly, passionate, and positive. This college allows me to have the small, private school experience while also paying SUNY tuition and being beside the large university of Syracuse.
