Overall Experience: There are a variety of different courses offered that suit different academic interests and the professors are mostly helpful and friendly. The classes are medium sized and there are always options for individual attention or help if needed.

Overall Experience: As an Advertising major, the Newhouse school of Communications provides ample opportunities for networking and career building. There are multiple career fairs each semester where students can connect with recruiters from top companies and agencies in the industry. A Newhouse degree is extremely valuable because it opens the door to extensive opportunities for career advancement and networking

Health & Safety: Off campus safety near upperclassmen apartment buildings has been an issue and is an area of concern for me as I search for off-campus housing

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is very expensive for mediocre quality.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek Life on campus is a big part of the social atmosphere. Over one third of the campus is Greek, but certain sororities and fraternities are very selective during recruitment and pick people that have a certain "look" or "vibe" to them that matches the vibe of the sorority or fraternity. Moreover, diversity is not welcomed.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The student fitness centers are nice and renovated and the Division I sports programs are some of the best in the country

Diversity: There are more minority students here than at a lot of colleges, but it's still not great

Drug Safety: Literally everyone drinks. I'm one of very few people who don't, and it's definitely weird

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel confident in my ability to get a job.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of education programs, but not everyone takes them seriously. The school recently shut down a support center for sexual assault victims and are under investigation.

Campus Housing: The split doubles are great! They give you privacy while still getting he roommate experience!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Good parties, lots of choices.

4 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is awesome, and makes it super easy to find on campus jobs/internships/and jobs for after graduation. I have no doubt that I'll have a good job after I graduate.

Health & Safety: I don't know anyone who has been sexually assaulted. Our school has really cracked down on this issue and takes it very seriously. Alcohol and drugs are a part of almost any college campus, and definitely plays a large role at Cuse, but I also know a lot of people who don't go out a lot or drink and still love it here.

Campus Housing: I have a split double in Haven Hall. When I came in this year, I had brand new hard wood floors, brand new mattress, and ALL brand new furniture. They renovate the dorms frequently. They also do a lot of fun activities to help you bond with your hall/building. Our hall has a group text which is nice because you can always find some to go eat/go to the gym with you.

Greek Life: Greek life is really big here, but you don't have to do it. The people who are involved really love it, but the people who don't do it have a lot of fun too.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Syracuse so much. Everyone here bleeds orange. There's so much school spirit and everyone looks out for each other. You can really decide how much you challenge yourself with your course load, and also depending on which specific school you're in(Whitman, Newhouse, Arts and Sciences, etc). It's so diverse, you'll meet people from all over the world. There's ALWAYS fun stuff going on and new people to meet.

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.
