4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For general education courses, the professors are not always passionate about their field. I heavily rely on the professor to love what they are teaching, because it makes me want to be interested in the subject even if I was not previously interested. If an instructor can get me to care about something that I otherwise would have hated, I would say that they are successful at teaching. For the classes I am in now, I am pretty satisfied with my professors and their ability to teach what they need to. I am very excited for next semester and the ones after that because my classes will be more focused on my geology major, and I will meet professors that will be passionate in the same things I am.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I need to take more advantage of the career and internships prospects at this school, because I know there is a good amount of people that can help me with a career path plan and help me get an internship. I am nervous that it will be difficult for me to find a job once I graduate, but with the degree I will earn, I am hopeful for a career I can be proud of.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: For the most part, I feel really safe on campus. I have never had anything really happen to me to make me doubt my privacy or security. There are a lot of creepy people out there, but that's real life and the school can only do so much from preventing bad things from happening, especially if they are off campus. Campus police does a pretty good job on campus.

Campus Housing: At first, I thought on campus housing was pretty good. I am now in my second year of it and I seriously cannot wait to move off campus. I just feel like we are charged for housing and board much more than it is worth. I, unlike a lot of my friends, have taken out a lot of loans in my name that I will be paying off for many years. I feel like I am paying too much for what I am actually getting out of living on campus. I know it could be a lot worse, but I just do not like it. The dorms do not have any A/C, and in the winter they're heated way too much, making it very uncomfortable. The staff that cleans and maintains the dorms are great people and I feel like they are taken advantage of and not thanked enough. The social atmosphere is great, except for when you live on West campus and try to do homework on a weekend.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The parties are okay, but I'm not really into going to them very much. I have heard good and bad things about the fraternities and sororities. Since it is just a SUNY school, and not a huge school or a school down south, Greek life is not that great. The houses are not that nice and I hear rumors about hazing. I do not know if they're true, but I do not have interest in every joining anyway. No one really judges each other whether they go greek or not, but I've noticed an increased amount of people joining sororities and fraternities. The only sort of Greek organization I would ever consider joining would be on that is more like an honor society that is only focused on service, like a club, and not one of the other ones that are more focused on partying and social interaction.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not really have much to say about this, but once again, you get out what you put into it. There's plenty of opportunities to get involved in athletics, whether it's a membership at one of the two gyms on campus, intramural sports, clubs, or varsity sports. I think the varsity teams are pretty good, but I do not pay attention much honestly. I have a membership at the gym, and I don't use it every day but I would say it is pretty helpful. There is a week at the beginning of school where the gyms are free to use without membership which is pretty good at getting people into going and getting memberships. I like that there is also a pool, tennis courts, soccer fields, and raquetteball courts to use whenever. Running by the lake is also really nice.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the location on Lake Ontario, and I really like my major too. I think there are a lot of opportunities for science majors and for business majors, but not for people majoring in anything art related. You really get out of it what you put into it. If you don't get involved in clubs or anything here, then you most likely will think this place sucks. However, I've started to become more involved now and my outlook on school here is improving. If you do not have a car and live on campus, it can be kind of depressing because there is not much you can do here without a car or a house. The dining halls are not that great either, and we pay a lot for them.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The people are obnoxious. The food is disgusting. The Internet is by far the worst. If you don't party you will be bored. Very little intellectual drive it seems from many students. Weather is horrible. The professors are very good, however there are some very bad ones. This school will screw you around.

Overall Experience: The courses are both engaging and challenging in the best ways. The professors are wonderful! I've only had one so far that I didn't care too much for.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career services are a great help!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The University Police are always driving around making sure things are OK. Any problems are quickly and efficiently addressed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've been in the same dorm for the last two years. It's not terrible, but it's not perfect. It has tunnels to a dining hall, and a computer lab and fitness center, so that is definitely a perk. I'm also in the dorm farthest from campus an it kind of sucks. The RAs a re great though, very friendly!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Honestly, I really only go to hockey games.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall I really do love this school. I honestly feel like I'm getting a great education. I kind of wish there were more things to do though, I'm not really a partier and it is definitely a party school. Other than that though, this place is pretty great. The wifi kind of sucks, and that's probably my biggest complaint, which isn't too bad considering.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are all different classes to take in all types of fields so one gets a lot of variety which is always great. Some teachers are good and some are bad, just how things are.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are always events held to help students get jobs and find out what they want to do. I love the amount of services that are available at our fingertips which makes our stressful lives way easier.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: They are way too strict and belittle students.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: depending on where you are situated, every dorm has its pros and cons.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: rushing is a lot of fun, so may options and parties but the selection process is pretty brutal and so is pledging.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Hockey is crazy and so is basketball

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are so many activities to do and everything is mainly student lead so it is incredible. The food is also really good and the campus is beautiful.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have anot app called rave guardian and it is great because it links you to campus police using the GPS on your phone.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are comfortable and a fun place to live. I have made so many friends that I never would have made if I didn't live on campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I do not participate in Greek life but I have some friends who do and they enjoy the friends they have made from it and the parties they throw and attend because of it.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't participate in any of the sports but there are always intramural tournaments going on across campus and authentication are somewhat important with the highest interest being drawn in to hockey.
