Greek Life: Frats and sororities are mean to everyone who aren't in one.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I"f you don't attend games why do you go to Syracuse?"

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If the students did not focus on partying so much I would enjoy it more.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: It's been voted the #1 party school in america before. That says it all.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: One of top party schools in america. Need I say more.

4 College Senior

Academics: Syracuse is not the hardest school in the world. Unless you're in one of those few really hard tracks. the work load is manageable. The professors really care and are interested in you doing well. There are plenty of opportunities to work with them in research projects and such.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There a lot of international students on campus. More than 10% of the student body is made up of minorities. However, there are a lot of homogenous people - specifically in the greek life scene. I would say diversity is good, not great.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: SU is a party school so there's plenty of alcohol to go around. However, no one will really judge you if you decide to refrain from it. Heavy drugs aren't really present. If you get caught drinking or supplying alcohol to anyone underage, DPS and the conduct board take these violations seriously. Being one of those people that need an ambulance called because they're completely intoxicated is completed up to you.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my school. I have never regretted choosing it. Great professors. Great staff. Plenty of courses to choose from. Nice facilities and just overall support.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Our alumni network is very strong. Every Syracuse alumni bleeds orange for the rest of their life. While internships aren't extremely easy to get in the city (given its small size), career services goes out of its way to make sure you're presented with plenty of opportunities.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus is honestly pretty open, but if you use your common sense and the facilities available to you, you'll be fine.That means don't walk alone in shady areas at 2am, ask DPS for a ride. Don't leave your door unlocked ect.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Some dorms need renovations (and are in the process of receiving it) others are great. Overall the door community is pretty good.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is really big in the school. All people talk about during the spring is 'Rush'. It's actually pretty annoying, but great for those interested.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Everyone in Syracuse (including the city) bleeds orange. Basketball is our life. We have one of the top sports attendance in the country.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Syracuse is composed of a very passionate student body. The faculty is really knowledgable and happy to help. There are plenty of opportunities for growth if you look for them. The only bad things about the school are really the weather and location.

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.
