4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Every night a policeman does a floor check in every building. They will say hello to the students and ask how they are doing then move on to the next floor.

The blue emergency light system on campus works well and is effective along with the red phone on campus system.

The campus offers a service to escort students back to their dorms if they are out late in an academic building, for example, I practice late at night in the music building and I can call for an escort back to my dorm if I do not feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All but one of the courses I have taken have been prepared well and has had teachers that care about how well the student does in class.

There are many courses offered on campus. I am a Music Business Major so a lot of my music classes are pre scheduled so I can not take some of the classes I would like due to the classes being only offered one time period a semester.

Class sizes are perfect in every class, the professors are able to get to know students individually and can offer help due to smaller class sizes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In the Music Business degree students have to take a summer internship and a semester internship. We are helped every step of the way by our advisor and helped by other students and alumni of the program. Most students after their semester internship get offered a job at that location.

There are many opportunities to pick from and explore.

Campus Housing: The janitors of the dorms are very nice and appreciate when students thank them for their work. They go above and beyond their cleaning jobs.

Most of the dorms are very nice and well kept. One dorm is in need of renovating since it is the oldest dorm and has a permeant stench.

All other dorms are up to date with wifi, nice bathrooms, clean rooms, good furniture, and nice residence staff.

I have only had one major problem when I had a roommate issue in September and the staff did not move me until February of the next semester. I fell that more communicating needs to be made between the supervisor of all dorms and the Resident Directors.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I personally do not have the time to attend as many sports events as I would like but the sports events that I do attend are enjoyable. It is nice seeing school pride at basketball and hockey games for both men and women.

The sports fields are very well kept and are used often in winter and summer weather.

The Athletic Center is always clean and kept up to date. The pool is always cleaned and taken care of. The locker rooms do not have a stench. The work out room offers a ton of options for everyone to use and has many bikes, treadmills, and other machines.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Im proud of my school in that everyone, even students not in my program are very friendly. I can talk to anyone (students, teachers, janitors, physical plant workers) and they are polite and respectful.

I am impressed with the opportunities SUNY Potsdam has giving me so far in my schooling. I have been able to work with the local PBS Station, I was a part of the stage crew for the opera, and I am an Assistant Stage Manager for a show this spring that will be touring in New York State.

I also enjoy the fact that if you have a problem, the staff will listen to your problem and try their best to help you. I have had teachers stay late after their work day is done to help me and other students with class problems. All teachers are very assessable to the students even on the weekends and over breaks.

Campus Housing: housing is decent although some dorms are better than others in terms of older buildings vs new ones. Suite options are available to Sophmore class and up.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am on the soccer team and have friends who also play hockey, lacrosse, or softball as well as soccer. The attendance at soccer games is not huge in numbers but the college president attends as often as she can, which is neat and she is known to be a soccer fan. The athletic facilities are great and the soccer field is brand new, therefore, the women's and men's team will be able to play on their home field for the Fall 2016 season. The pool and the hockey area is really nice too.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy attending/living at SUNY Potsdam, have met so many new friends. The campus is beautiful and the town is clean. I would recommend this college to incoming Freshman.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Little to no visible community outreach, some programs are in place but aren't heavily advertised

3 College Senior

Athletics: School athletics are popular on campus, but are overshadowed by the Crane School of Music and the events that it holds. Academics and music are held higher than sports.

Overall Experience: The college provides an open and involved community that is concerned with the success and safety of students. Professors are professional, but approachable and are generally highly vested in the academic success of students. Class sizes are small and a good variety of courses are offered.
