5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The whole lottery and housing process for the fall is very stressful. I wish there was a simpler method of selecting where you would like to room for fall semester. If you have a good lottery number and your roommates do as well then the process is pretty much a breeze...

Campus Housing: The dorms are getting renovated and are getting much better. The private bathrooms are the best renovation, you can enjoy privacy when showering/being in the bathroom.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I went Greek and I don't regret it. It's a great way to find a good group of friends and get involved on campus. If you're a non-Greek you'll miss out on a better social scene.

Athletics: School spirit is the best in the country. The D1 athletes get their own gym, and the gym on main campus that's for students is okay. I think its due for renovation soon because it is pretty old and drab. The weight room can get pretty crowded and so do the basketball courts, but besides that everything is fine.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Syracuse is not a school that is freshman-friendly, in my opinion. As a freshman guy, it's even worse. The social scene is incredibly exclusive. Frats don't let any guys in whatsoever, and house parties and bars will always charge you a cover fee of up to 10$. School wise some classes are a complete joke and others are super demanding. Professors are usually hit or miss. With such a huge undergrad population, its tough to find the right friend group, so you have to get involved in something (extracurriculars/clubs). Once you find the right people youre comfortable being around, your school experience will get much better.

Health & Safety: More often than not, I feel very unsafe on campus. I do not feel like I can walk alone at night safely. Though we have security systems in place on campus, I wish I could feel safer on campus.

Drug Safety: There are A LOT of drugs on campus and even more alcohol. Half of the liqueur and package stores could care less if ur 21 or not. They'll sell to anyone

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Thankfully I, nor any of my friends have experienced any type of issues regarding safety. I personally feel very safe in my dorm and hall. As for walking around campus, of course the blue lights are a huge comfort, but I try not to walk outside far from my dorm after dark. I believe there is no reason to put yourself in unnecessary situations no matter where you are.

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.
