I think the town is very cute and the people are really nice. A lot of my friends went there and when not paying for dorm living and commuting the price is so cheap one of them didn't need to take out loans at all.

When I was applying to colleges last year, Geneseo was a last minute, bottom of the list school. I got a last minute acceptance, about a week before May 1st, and decided to change my mind about the pricey private school I was already enrolled in. I have never made a better decision in my life. The campus is beautiful, my education is top notch, and even though I pay full price to go here it is very affordable. I am a biochemistry major on the pre-med track and there are so many pre professional resources and resume boosters on campus. I would absolutely recommend Geneseo to anyone, and am already drawing in rising seniors from my old high school because of my snapchats of the unbeatable Genseo sunset.
