4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities at SU, which is why I love it. Some of its downfalls would be the weather and the freshmen dorms. The food is ok. The variety of classes and majors is great and it is really easy to find an extracurricular you'll really enjoy.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have mixed feelings about Greek Life. It has the ability to give a person some great friends, but it can take over people's lives and change them. It is hard to ensure that you do not get sucked into the Greek bubble and are able to take a step back when necessary. It is very prevalent on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit really drives the school. Fan support and team performance is great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would choose to do it all over again. I have learned so much academically, socially, and personally. What I wish I could redo was to do more. Take up extracurriculars, study more, put myself out there more, etc.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Follow the buddy system at night, especially if you're a girl. No excuses. Not that if you were by yourself that something would happen, but just as a precaution. Also just a tip, don't get too tipsy at a party unless you're positive you have a trustworthy buddy with you!!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really can't say anything bad about the housing here. It is what it is. Obviously you're not going to be living in a five-star hotel. Some of the dorms are smaller than others, but for the most part they are very spacious. My only criticism I have, is that the dorms can get very warm year around. So bring a fan! You'll still be using in November.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big here, but that doesn't mean it's do or die. A lot of people choose to go Greek around their sophomore year, and are still friends with people who aren't Greek. You'll have friends who are and aren't in a greek house.

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.
