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.

On campus food can be really really good on occasion! The best options are probably Shaw and Ernie Davis dining halls, and I've heard Sadler is really good! There are many other options for food and coffee, such as Shine and Goldstein student centers, that have food places like Sbarro, Dunkin Donuts, and Burger King that you can use your dining dollars from your meal plan. Other popular places around campus are Bird Library cafe for coffee and other sandwiches and Slocum cafe for sandwiches. Marshall Street also has many options for people, like Insomnia Cookies (excellent) and Calios (also excellent), and plenty of other Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks in the area. Many of these places also deliver to the dorms for late-night dining!
