The school has some really great professors, and there is a HUGE emphasis on sports and fitness (and education majors)! The one down fall I will say is their parking is the worst I have seen. You pay for a parking pass and still have to walk a mile (if not more) to get to class. The school can feel cliquey if you transfer in and it may be hard to find friends, but those that have been here since freshman year don't really have trouble. Cortland academics are no joke, and you cant just skim by and expect to get good grades. The social life is thriving here at Cortland whether its clubs, campus activities, or the bar scene. Also, be prepared for some brutal winters!

SUNY Cortland is known for their athletics! Our facilities and stadiums are state-of-the-art and our whole complex is beautiful. Everyone of our varsity teams makes conference play and majority of them qualify for an NCAA bid. We are a big intramural and club sports school, students are always involved with sports. Since Cortland's sport education programs are the best in the state, students who major in anything dealing with recreation get to work hands on with the varsity teams. Example can be a student majoring in athletic training, gets to work with any varsity team and gets to be their trainer for a season. Since the New York Jets use our facilities for their training camp, money is always being put into our fields and stadiums. I truly believe Cortland has one the best, if not the best, Athletic complex in the state.

Sports at SUNY Cortland are very diverse, going from intramural to varsity, it gives everyone who wants to participate an opportunity to make a play. Whether you're just going to kick around a ball on the field or go watch the baseball game, there's a great possibility you will be enjoying yourself. The school spirit at the varsity games is incredible, everyone roots for the teams like it's going out of style and it makes the games very entertaining. If you don't want to play sports and still want to stay physically fit, there are many different athletic facilities on campus, varying from a ice skating rink, to numerous gyms, basketball courts and even a pool! It's hard not to stay active at Cortland.
