5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: sooo safe. i feel comfortable walking home alone at night.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: i love all of my professors. theyre all so accommodating and care a lot about the students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: there are career and internship fairs all the time and you can walk around with your resume and very easily find placements

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: greek life at geneseo is unlike greek life anywhere else. the greek community is so friendly and open. parties here are "closed" so that means you have to be either in greek life, a varsity sports team, or a club team to get to go to parties. (usually) this makes the greek community very close. a typical party could be two greek organizations and two sports teams at a frat house. there are also organizations for everyone. here, the organizations aren't "tiered" like they are at other schools. each has its own "thing" and you just find where you fit in. whether you are very unique and dont like to party that much, or preppy, or party really really hard, there's an organization for you. nothing is based on looks here either. i never imagined i'd join a sorority but i love it. i go to the library and know i have people to sit with. i can type in my group chat and find ten people to go to lunch with. and it has led me to meet so many people outside my sorority. also, people are friends with people outside their greek organizations. you dont have to only hang out with people in your sorority. if you go here, rush!! it'll be worth it. and if you are looking at this school and are turned off my the greek life, it is different here, and amazing! don't be turned off!!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: intramurals are SO fun!! and club sports! everyone loves hockey. the other sports are fun to watch too but dont attract as much attention. sports teams are fun to party with too.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Geneseo was the best decision i could have made. I was looking at some ivy leagues and big "better" state schools. But, for this price, i couldn't say no. I love all of my classes. It is so easy to get involved here. This school is what you make it. You can have no social life, no anything, and dislike it. Or, you can join clubs, greek life, sports teams, and make this the most wonderful place. My professors are engaging, and care so much about the students. Theyre always willing to give extra help or talk after class. I love the clubs I'm involved in, and I love being in a sorority. (something i never imagined i would say) Everyone that goes here is very friendly, and it is such a unique environment that i wish every college student could experience. Everyone that goes here was the "smart kid" in high school, which can be intimidating. However, there is so much room to grow and be at the top and so many people around you to motivate you. 10/10 recommend.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is well-lit at night, and walking on/around campus is extremely safe! I have never known of anyone having a problem with safety at night.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are small, which makes each student feel important and engaged! Very easy to get to know professors in my department (IR/Langauge), and the professors genuinely care.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Career center is extremely helpful when looking for any kind of employment!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms on campus are very nice! Others, such as the freshman housing are old and far away from classes, which is annoying, especially in the winter.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is VERY popular on campus, and many students are involved. However, if its not for you, there are other options for the social scene- such as attending parties with a friend or joining a club sport.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletic contests are a lot of fun to attend on campus, but there are plenty of other things to do if they do not interest the specific student.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: SUNY Geneseo is a great university with caring, knowledgable professors and hardworking students.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I see police all the time who are just around. I have never actually seen something bad happen, but I think with the blue light system it would be easy to get help.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's really difficult to judge this because it depends from subject to subject.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: People think really highly of students who graduate from this school and that is the only reason I am here.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: If you are a freshman, you are getting the absolute worst dorms. You have to cross two roads and walk up cardiac hill to get to class. It royally sucks. As an upper classmen, you have the opportunity to live somewhere better.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: It's not absolutely horrific, but we are a state school so there is an annoying amount of partying and loud music and people coming back to their dorms after noon and puking in the bathrooms.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We are DIII. So it's not the greatest, but there is a lot of support for the hockey team which is cool. It is really really upsetting that there is no football team though.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's too small. There just aren't enough classes. The classes that we do have are hard to get into especially as an underclassmen. It was a big mistake coming here and I am sincerely regretting it every day that I wake up and am still here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great school, good people, good sports, good academics. Challenging in the best way.
