4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I can tell the housing off campus isn't bad, but I have never lived off campus before.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love going off campus for food to switch it up. Maria's and Calios both deliver to campus as well, so that's nice. Nothing is too expensive.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Some parties get out of hand and unnecessary, for example FredFest, but they can be pretty fun.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Fredonia is a big party school, and the officials are great in handing situations the way they should.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a scholarship, but zero financial aid. Everyone in the office is knowledgable but sometimes can get a bit irritating.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of options, but there definitely be more healthy options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Fredonia is a smaller campus, so everything is close together. The corridor style dorm buildings are a lot newer than the suites, but everything is still well kept.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Lograsso SUCKS. They'll ask you if you're pregnant and then send you off with ibuprofen.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am a part of Greek Life and I enjoy it for the most part. We have a bad reputation, but we really do a lot for the community and campus. We do have and go to a lot of parties, but that is not all we do, and there are plenty of Greek Life members that do not go out or party at all. I respect and love all of the other frats and sororitys on campus.. except Delta Chi. Nobody has respect for Delta Chi.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus, but I have a lot of friends that do, and for the most part, they really like it. Prime locations are Canadaway because its close to the bars, not too expensive, and pretty nice quality. Most of the houses on temple are older and have been lived in by many other college kids, so there is obvious ware and tear, and mysterious stains. Park

Place is nice, but its really far from everything, so be prepared to walk or take the drunk bus everywhere.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Calios, Marias, and Street Meat are your best friends after a drunk night at the bars.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Its so much fun to party here because the people are so friendly. This is the best college party scene I've been to because we're not complete assholes and we have common courtesy. There are plenty of options if you know people, and if you cant find a party, you can always pregame in the dorms and then go to the bars. If you're part of a club on campus, there is a mixer almost every week with another club or team. I highly recommend getting involved in a club/team and being friendly and personable if you want to party.

2 College Freshman

Administration: The punishments are way too strict and unreasonable. Instead of trying to help people, they kick them out of school, therefore screwing them over in the future. Some of the University Police are very nice, but some are complete assholes for no reason, and they abuse their power. There are always rumors of drug raids, and that drug dogs are coming, but it never happens. Basically if you're not stupid about your alcohol and drug use in the dorms you wont get caught, but if you do, it really sucks.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't set up my financial aid lol my mommy did it for me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: C-Store is good, but it eats up your points. You get sick of Starbucks fast. Tim Hortons is really slow. Willies is fast, but its not the best quality. Cranston either has really good food, or really sh***y food- there is no in-between. The cafe's are decent and good if you need to grab something quick in between classes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the suites and I actually really like it. I enjoy only sharing a bathroom with 5 other people compared to the people who live in the corridor style dorms and have to share it with 12+ people. The noise isn't a problem, other than the people that like to skateboard at 3am, because it echos throughout the quads. Other than that, you don't have people running down the hall drunkenly. You also don't have to worry about random people walking down your hallway, because people don't usually go into a hall unless they have a reason. Having a fire drill sucks because if the fire alarm goes off in one of the buildings, the whole quad has to evacuate, and fire drills usually take about 15-20 minutes before they allow you back in the building. Overall, it only takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to class from the dorms, depending on which dorm you live in and which building your class is in. There are always activities going on in the dorms, because all of the RA's have to put on programs, so if you don't feel like going out you can probably find a movie night or craft going on. Another downside to living in the dorms is that all of the doors are alarmed past 9pm-7am, and if you have a guest, you have to sign them in at 9. Overall, I really enjoy living on campus, but after sophomore year most people get sick of living there and end up moving off campus.

Guys & Girls: Average or below average looking people

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: No variety mostly house parties since Fredonia is a small town.

3 College Freshman

Administration: People pretty much do what they want.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: In the beginning it's great but it becomes very repetitive and fattening. Mostly fast food.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's quite clean and modern but very plain and lifeless. The walls are very thin so you can hear everyone gossiping to your left and right. People pretty much respect the rules even thought they have a significant amount of freedom.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For the most part the advisors are willing to help you with the process of finding jobs and making it through college. But in the department I'm in it seems like the professor is there to just outdo the student. May times I have been just shut down rather than answered or corrected.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't use the athletic buildings on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus I can say that most places are fair and a good option. There are a few exceptions though, I currently live in a place that is crazy expensive for what I have, so I'll be moving next year. Not all places are like this though.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Almost everything off campus is fast food and is not within walking distance. There are a few places downtown that are closer and within walking distance, but they are a bit more expensive, though have higher quality food.

SUNY Fredonia becomes a second home to almost all of its students. Because the campus is relatively small, it is easy to develop close friendships with other students, which is extremely important when living away from home. If given the chance, many students would choose SUNY Fredonia again over any other school. It is rare for students to decide to leave the school because they did not like the atmosphere or the school. SUNY Fredonia is not just a place to meet lifelong friends, but it is also a place to develop as a person and discover what to do in life. This is where the school’s professors come into play.

The professors at SUNY Fredonia genuinely want the students to succeed. Both the professors and the school make sure that students are prepared for their chosen career fields before they graduate. There are endless options to ensure that this happens, from internships to academic adviser guidance. It is unusual to hear pending graduates say that they feel unprepared for the real world. And most students will be happy to share their feelings on this; another unique aspect of the University is its friendly atmosphere. There is a place for everyone on campus, and the students are extremely supportive of each other. It is because of this accepting atmosphere that a majority of the students falls in love with the campus and local community, and learns to call it "home."
