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!

Personally, I love the student life here at ESF. We are a small school and this makes our student body close knit and very friendly. There are always events going on around campus that you can get involved in to meet people. Being directly next to Syracuse University and the relationship we share with them, we also have infinite opportunities to get involved there. We can use all of their athletic facilities, dining halls, libraries, buildings, and join any of their 300+ clubs and organizations. Games at the dome are always a fun activity!

Flexible, Open, and Interesting! Being an Environmental Biology major is amazing. The curriculum is extremely open to tweaking (your entire senior year is electives!), and offers plenty of opportunity for customization for what you want to take. All of the professors are excellent to work with and are more than willing to lend a hand getting an internship, lab position, or employment. They also like to just talk about the work they're doing, so find a professor that has similar interests and get on board!
