As an international student, this being the first time away from home I will always call Syracuse my home. The place is amazing! I experienced some family difficulties due to finance but I was helped in my first semester. I'm wanting to go back to Syracuse and live the orange life which I've fallen in love with. I'm trying all sorts of ways to get back! People are so friendly, I've made some great friends and the professors are brilliant understanding and empathetic. Syracuse is the university that I would send my kids too. There's so much to offer and more.

I think the school has amazing opportunities to apply yourself. There are limitless clubs and organizations that can really help you find your people here on campus. Being a freshman, I know that was something I was most afraid of, and the school does a great job making everybody feel apart of the community here. However, the campus itself, although beautiful, does not always have the safest vibe. Some neighboring areas near the dorms are poorly lit, and DPS is not always as present as one would hope they would be. Be that as it may, the school itself is wonderful. In my first semester alone, I have worked with incredible, nationally ranked professors, who have opened my mind to a world of possibilities. The educators are experts in their course material, and the advisors are very passionate about helping you build your own path. There is something here for everyone, truly.

It can be said that Syracuse University almost has it all. I chose Syracuse because it truly has the large University feel with the competitiveness and intimacy of a super small private school. I am a first year architecture student and I will say that it is one of the most challenging and time consuming majors at Syracuse but even with such time constraints, I manage to have an enjoyable experience. All of my professors come off as very serious and strict but when they see that you are taking the initiative to learn they are always there to help, even at 2am. The sports teams are division 1 and top ranked so there is tons of school spirit. Its hard to find a dorm room which isnt covered with orange. Also the party scene was nothing less than interesting as a freshman male. Don't expect to be getting into every single party right when you get to college because thats not how it works. Once you meet people and put yourself out there, you will get in. My only gripe is the food.
