The campus is constantly under construction as it seems. Everything feels local and easily navagable. Commuting uptown and downtown is very common since a large portion of living space for upper classmen is reserved downtown and the apartments on campus are expensive.

My school is unique because there is a diverse population and a diverse surrounding community. Suny Albany focuses on giving back to the community and participating in community service. Many middle and high schools come to the campus and college students are able to tutor and mentor these students. Suny Albany participated in neighborhood clean-up days. Suny Albany has many students participating or running after school programs for middle and high school students off campus. This allows college students to learn how to work in a community and become a leader.

The fact is that UAlbany has great academics and low tuition relative to the publics. As the name recognition of UAlbany and all of the SUNYs rise your chance of admission will decline. This is the hidden gem but not for long.

Teresa

I really enjoy the fact that SUNY Albany is located in the middle of a city as well as the capital of New York. There's always something to do or something interesting going on in the area like shows and festivals and such. Some other schools I considered were in the middle of a very rural area with nothing around except grass and cows. I don't think I'd be able to spend four years of my life in an area like that.

SUNY at Albany is a unique place to study because of its prominent social experiences that accompany its studious goals.

When I first went to visit the school the thing that stuck out amongst other schools was the amount of opportunities the students have to get involved in a club.

My years in undergraduate played an important role in developing my personality, my intelligence, and my drive to succeed. Each individual takes this opportunity and turns it into what they believe is vital for their growth. I looked at these years as a challenge, academically and cognitively. Albany gave me the motivation and direction I was in search of, helped me understand the value of a social support network, allowed me to explore the world via study abroad and also develop my sense of community by leaving me confident that I have the ability to truly change the world.

The school spirit, the hearts of the students that want to get involved and be a part of an amazing family is what really drew me in.

SUNY Albany is a very diverse school and they have tons of programs and events and clubs to make sure everybody has a variety of activities to involve themselves in while they are attending the school. I believe that is what makes it so unique. Even if they dont want to involve themselves in any of the clubs, they cannot resist SUNY Albany's famous Fountain Day. This day is only celebrated at SUNY Albany and it is a day for they whole school to kick back, relax and come together in unity.

Junaid

The school I am currently attending provides various opportunities and I do not know how I would have performed differently if I attended another university to which I have applied. I am open to many majors but have my heart set on being a pre-med student, so I believe I receive academic support from various individuals and with the friends i have made, I could not wish to be anywhere else.

Nina

One thing about the University at Albany that I find very unique is how diverse our school is. There are students and faculty that come from over one hundred countries, to attend or work at the University. With the University being so diverse it helps understand people's background and that there are millions of different opinions about the littlest thing, I think because the University is so diverse it helps me be more open minded about the world and what is going on within it.

Bin

When comparing Suny Albany and other schools, I always prefer Suny Albany because at Suny Albany it have many different majors we can chose from and it is public school so the tuition is not that high, which is an amount most people can afford.
