Athletics: I don't know of any atlethic clubs in this school

Academics: You may find the work load difficult at times since most classes are online, and since you cannot see most of the professors in person; but the choice of different classes can be very, very helpful. The classes offered by Empire are not basic and they are often complicated topics to study; so Empire is certainly a legitimate school of important learning. It's important to remember to focus much on readings that are assigned however, and I cannot stress that enough.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors have the time to help you out for the most part, though admittedly most of the online work is on your own shoulders. My teachers have been very good so perhaps I am biased, but on the whole I have only had two to three difficult courses out of at least the 10-15 that I have taken. Most courses are of course online courses, and unfortunately not much besides the online courses have been available to me since I began; especially since the main campus is upstate from where I live. However you will always have a variety of interesting classes to chose from should you get discouraged fro any reason.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The prospects are likely limitless for hard working students from SUNY Empire. Some in the past have even gone onto Harvard and other 'high-bar' universities, so Empire is just as good if not possibly a little more so when compared to other SUNY schools.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a very good school and while certain classes may seem pricey...the level of education that one is coming by for a low price cannot be easily outmatched. And the staff is empathetic and intelligent on high levels. It is a school with great credentials, and with teachers of great learning who can impart much onto their students. If you ever have questions while completing online courses, most professors will be eager to help you. If you don't like writing, or reading in high demand however the school isn't likely for you however as much of the work revolves around heavy reading, essays, and overall critical thinking. On the whole it is a very, very good school and is great for an affordable and useful education on the way to Bachelor's and Master's degrees.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I don't know much about the athletics department but i would imagine that it is at the very least moderately good. Sports are not a big part of the campus activities however to my knowledge.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Some professors go out of the way for students, and others don't. You are responsible in choosing your courses . The online programs at Empire State are all reading, and writing intensive. Several people can be in a class or you may have to take an independent study to fulfill your degree plan.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have used the career center to update my resume and cover letter, however Empire State made changes to the career center. I also noticed that Empire State College provides lists of internships, and career opportunities if it is required.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: My school had contact information for whoever gets sexually assaulted or harassed on campus and online. My school also a netiquette rules in place when if a student breaks the rule he/she has serious consequence.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: SUNY Empire State College is a not for profit, affordable online school. Some of the staff and instructors go out the way to make their students satisfied. The workload quite rigorous, but if a person chooses to be persistant and hard-working then they will pass with a high grade. There are some pretty interesting courses that students have the opportunity to enroll in as long as the courses fit in the degree plan. Students are even allowed to customize their degrees plans according to their goals.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I'm not really sure about my schools athletics department because so far I only intended SUNY Empire State online.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I fell and broke my ankle at the beginning of my semester here, all of my professors have worked with me after my surgery as well as finding out I was pregnant. My professors have been amazing and I have been able to continue my education even though I was injured and now that I am expecting my mine and my husbands first child.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: SUNY Empire allows me to work towards a degree while working, traveling, and participating in my favorite hobbies.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The online school option allows e to run my business and still earn my degree

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I take all of my classes online so that I am able to work full time and I absolutely love it. I love having to discipline ,us elf to do the work because I feel it is making me a stronger person. I am able to currently work at a daycare and I am a substitute at a school which are both in the education field that I am attending college for. I am also able to pursue getting my high school field hockey coaching certification. My college choice was one of the best decisions for my current lifestyle. I love SUNY Empire State College.

Overall Experience: Lots of meetings were scheduled for new students to inform them about the various support services the college provides. For adults who have been out of school for sometime, the school provides many clinics on writing and math skills in addition to one-on-one tutors that are available by appointment or scheduled hours.
