4 College Junior

Overall Experience: At first I attended Cayuga Community College which was a little away from home but not too far if i needed anything. It was awesome to gain some responsibility and i met lots of new people and made new friends! It is very challenging but I love a challenge. I stayed on the deans list and made the best of it. Then, I missed my family and realized I wanted to be closer so I applied to my dream school, Syracuse University. I have worked at Syracuse University all through out my high school years and I loved it there. The atmosphere and how big it was kind of over-whelmed me but I knew this was the school for me!

Overall Experience: Syracuse students are a very homogeneous group. There is little diversity in ideologies and disposition.

Overall Experience: Time at college is as best as you can make it, if can either be bad or good but its only if you take initiative.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't even begun my first semester at Syracuse University, but from my college visit during my junior year of high school and my freshman orientation, I can already tell that I'm going to love Syracuse and be incredibly happy there. The environment is great, I love the college-town nature of Syracuse and the fact that it's never too hot there - coming from Florida, I'm a little tired of the extreme heat. The people seemed really friendly and the variety of classes available during my course selection made me so excited for my school year.

Health & Safety: we used to have a center for students who have experience sexual assault but the chancellor removed it (which makes the school and him look bad). Other than that, the students really care and are constantly fighting to get the center back. Sexual assault does happen in our school, just be aware of the situations you get yourself into and choose the right friends. Good luck.

Athletics: sports sports sports. Our school revolves around that people love it even if you don't really like it. Hello, its a division 1 school.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If youre into greek life, chances are you'll get into it. As for those who aren't in greek life, you wont really care as long as you don't affiliate with them or let them control your life. just make it clear if you're about it or not.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The party life depends on your personality. If you're into greek life then you'll probably be at Euclid where all the frat houses are at. If you're 21 or have a fake, good luck finding good bars. if you're more into having a close group of friends then youll be at the apts on south or exploring syracuse.

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus food is alright. We could use some hispanic spots and no chipotle doesn't count. The only place where discount is really used is starbucks.

Administration: The school isn't very strict but they do worry about the lives of students on campus. Some of the officers are a bit racist but with a bit of work, the school could get rid of that.

Campus Food: The dining halls do get repetitive and they serve the worst food on weekends. It wouldn't be so bad if the meal plans weren't as expensive. My best advise is save up money so you can eat out on weekends. Go downtown or to destiny or to marshall street and eat something different once in a while; maybe once a week.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school really provides you with good financial aid but if you're someone thats really in need of the most assistance you need, you will need to get yourself together and ask around and not give up. It kind of sucks that you have to go around asking so much but its worth it when you do receive the aid.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus overall is great because you could potentially meet one of your best friends. The dorms aren't as bad if you have a split. The bathrooms that aren't private are pretty bad but you get used to it after a while.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I am part of greek life and it is great. always something to do on the weekends and also supplies a home away from home.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't really know much about it, not really my scene.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Campus cracked down so castle no longer is a thing, however still great greek parties and bars.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Marshall street is great. So many options for not a lot of money.

4 College Junior

Administration: They understand we are college students but also want to keep us safe.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Dining halls aren't awful but wouldn't be my first choice if they didn't have to be. Marshall street is great.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: They don't seem to give much financial aid when it is very needed.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Just like any college housing, its dorm life. It isn't the best but it could certainly be worse. There are some dorms that are brand new and great, and some that could use some fixing up.

Off-Campus Dining: Off campuse food is great, remember to get OCMP if you have to get a meal plan, but its essentially just having money that you can only use for food. Marshall is great and armory square has great food as well

Greek Life: Greek life is great if its for you. rush see if you like a house then, if you get a bid pledge. as a side note the houseing question only gave the option of "Opulent Chapter Houses" or "Run-Down Chapter Houses" There defiantly are both but They predominantly about the same cleanliness of the dorms. Really wtf, Opulent or rundown? kids if i asked you to describe the house you live in now few would say Opulent, and fewer would say run down unless you live in house that is condemed *cough* *cough* TKE.. but I'm no jordan belford and I'm no joe dirt I'm somewhere on the jordan belford side of that I think so i answered that you can live in an opulent chapter house.

Off-Campus Housing: Got to know where you are going to live, don't go through thorden when your coming home from the bars. all the greek life housing is best then euclid and its off streets. closer = better in my book

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

SU has a laundry list of good qualities about it and very few flaws. The main thing to remember is that SU and its students refuse to be pigeonholed. There are so many varying interests at Syracuse University, as well as a broad array of extracurricular activities. People can't even agree on what major is the most prestigious (although many claim communications or architecture). Still, although there is a broad range of people at SU, there usually is a consensus on one thing: people at Syracuse University really like it. Sure, there are different reasons, but almost everyone who spends a few years at SU enjoys it.

Some like the choices in classes, while others like the prominent sports teams on campus. Some like the appeal of a real college campus in the middle of a big city. No one comes for the weather. And besides the few reasons a student will specifically seek out Syracuse University, there are a broad number of factors that keep students here. The on-campus and off-campus housing is excellent, the computer facilities are top-notch, and the nightlife can be a major draw. Also, students generally have a lot of genuinely interesting events going on around campus. Whatever the reason, students who come to SU tend to stay here.
