5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school! The professors are passionate and willing to help you. It has a competitive air about it so you are constantly being motivated to be the best you can be.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are great and for the most part want you to succeed but 100 level classes usually require a ridiculous amount of work. The school is extremely rural which definitely limits job and internship opportunities.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had a great time at Geneseo, and a large part of my experience has to do with my sorority sisters. Greek life on Geneseo's campus is large but it is not all that in your face about it. I never planned on joining a sorority, but I managed to get to know the girls in my organization outside of the sorority, and that is why I ultimately ended up joining them. Through them, I have had the chance to gain a lot of new friends and connections, as well as my organization giving me many chances for leadership roles. If it weren't for them, I don't think I would be as happy with Geneseo as I am.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love SUNY Geneseo. The academics are fantastic and I thoroughly enjoy being at school. I have surrounded myself with people who share the same passions as me and I am involved in extracurriculars that I didn't think I would be able to continue past high school. Geneseo is small enough that you always see someone that you can say hi to, but also big enough that I see a new face every day. We have an excellent leadership program that I'm involved with, as well as the Musical Theatre Club, the Irish dance team, and the Geneseo Pep Band.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school and I absolutely love my academic department. There is never a shortage of great opportunities to further my education and career path at my school. I have made some amazing friends and the community on campus is incredibly kind, open-minded, and welcoming. The only thing I hate about my school is the terrible winter weather. I wish I could take it and everyone in it and move it to a tropical location.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is great because it provides you with your own freedom and comfort but yet still isn't that far from campus. If you're going to class or heading to Starbucks they are still in walking distance if you did live in a house or apartment off campus. Plus living off campus is very convenient when looking to go out on the weekends and is very safe.

Party Scene: Being in an organization is the way to go if you're interested in the party scene. Geneseo doesn't offer many bars as far as night life goes, but there are plenty of house parties to check out. Definitely being a part of something doesn't hurt and is the best option, but even if you're not you can find somewhere to go at least three nights a week.

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining is great because there is a good variety of places to enjoy. There is a coffee shop, bakery, some cafes, sub shops, and so much more. The cost is fair and it's right off campus so it is very convenient when you want to grab a bite after class. Crickets and Sweet Arts are definitely great places to check out if you're heading up to main street for a cup of coffee or dessert.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is well monitored and balanced between fairness and strictness. The administration definitely enforces rules and the community seems to follow them pretty smoothly.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I personally didn't qualify for any financial aid, but it seems that they are very accomodating. Several of my friends received a good package and that included getting a job on campus otherwise known as work study.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food at Geneseo is really not that bad if you compare it to many other SUNY college campuses. There are plenty of options to choose from including Starbucks which is a great addition to the campus. Also, if you choose to you could add campus cash and use that money towards some restaurants on main street like the Village Cafe and many others.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on southside freshman year is a great experience because you're all in the same boat. You all are in a new living environment and meeting people that feel the same nervous feelings you do is what your first year is all about If you want to have a great time and balance between a social life and school work I would definitely choose Onondaga Hall.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Join an organization and you are set!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Late night dining is great!

5 College Freshman

Administration: They're no problem. There is mutual respect between the students and the administration.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not too bad, but not fantastic.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: No matter where you live, you will find people who will make the experience great! If you are a freshman, go for south side!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Really great socially, but pretty dirty. Don't expect much.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are only a few places to go off campus, but they aren't bad.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Personally, I'm not a "trouble maker," so I haven't run into any issues with administration.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You have to be in an organization of some sort if you want to go to a party.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was told that, as an incoming freshman, I wouldn't get any scholarship offers.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food that's "good for you" tastes bad and the food that tastes ok is bad for you. Easy to put on the freshman 15... or 30.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are some buildings that are great, but there are many that are old and outdated as of 15 years ago.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I think a major pro of off-campus living is the reduced cost. However, one would probably need a car in order to live off-campus, as the nearest grocery store is not within walking distance.
