4 College Freshman

Administration: I feel extremely safe on campus and in my dorm. There is security at each dorm after 8pm!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: just gets boring after a while

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Marshall Street is the place to go for off-campus dining. I am determined to try every restaurant before graduating.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Strictness in dorms depends on the RA. Some could care less.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Like every other dining hall food, Syracuse dining halls can get repetitive. My favorite thing about its dining halls, though, is the soups. They have yummy soups everyday and they're what keeps me going.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am really happy with the aid that I have received so far. I really like the school and my financial aid is allowing me to stay here.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: basketball games and tailgates are the best!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The hall that I lived in last year was great, in my opinion. Though it is a bit far from most academic buildings, it was a good exercise for me in the morning when I walk to class. Cost is reasonable. That hall doesn't have a dining hall, but the "sister residence hall" next to us has one, so it was still convenient.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: nice to have your own place but a little farther walk from your classes

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always something happening

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are a lot of steps

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very average, communal bathrooms unless you get lucky or live on South Campus

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining hall gets very repetitive. When you're in school you want food from home when you're home you kind of miss the variety of the dining hall depending on your situation.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's always a party somewhere if you look.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Grub Hub is awesome and places are open pretty late. Its convenient and not too expensive

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration policies are probably like every other school. There isn't much strictness that I've experienced.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are a lot of forms to fill out. Syracuse is very good with giving out financial aid. My first year was covered by my aid and I only paid out of pocket for minor things. Scholarships are definitely the way to go

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's nice to have friends around to hang out with on the weekends and it's nice to have a specific place to study inside the dorms so you don't have to go all the way to the library. The dorms aren't too loud and the atmosphere works well. The facilities in the dorm like dining halls and a snack bar with a convenience store make it easy to never go hungry too. There's always space in the laundry room as well.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Usually a decent number of houses. Not always best quality

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.
