What is your overall opinion of this school?

Excellent school if you are looking to gain strong academic foundations, however, if you are hoping to create a network of professors and professionals with whom to work with post graduation this is not the school to attend. The academics are a major emphasis for Binghamton, specifically there Business School and nursing program. Overall the professors are excellent, attentive, and approachable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

All in all, it's a pretty decent and affordable place to attend college. It's just as good as the bigger schools in our area, but it's a lot more accommodating. Most of the professors here are quite good at their jobs, but there are a few I personally would avoid due to their teaching methods, but that is again personally, and they're probably right bang on for someone else. The food is fantastic for the value, and there are quite a lot of healthier options to choose from. The programs available are actually shocking in quantity, and overall the availability is phenomenal. I would happily suggest Suny Broome to anyone thinking of attending higher education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's ok. The food quality can be largely improved. The Hillside community needs some major renovations. Some CA's are better than actual professors. There are a lot of textbooks that are expensive, lab manuals are always required. The nature preserve is one of the good things about Binghamton. There are a lot of events during the first few weeks on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When first applying to colleges, SUNY Binghamton was my last choice out of 16. However, once I visited the school I immediately fell in love and sent in my acceptance once I got home. Since freshman year, Binghamton has been my home. I do not think any other school could provide such great academics, down to earth people, and a group of people to fit each person's interests. Binghamton accepts all people for who they are and encourage people to be their best and fullest self. Each individual is able to find a group of people who share the same interests. I can say with full confidence that once I leave Binghamton, I will be leaving with a job or entry into graduate and leave with my lifetime friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think at the price-point of a SUNY school you can't do much better. Binghamton had everything I needed to excel both in my education and to begin a successful career right after. For the students who weren't as successful, they all still had a good time and the tuition bill was not that large relative to other schools. I definitely recommend Binghamton to anyone unsure about what they want to do in or after college or to anyone that is looking for a cost-effective undergraduate education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you went to a NY high school and liked the social atmosphere, you'll probably like Binghamton. You'll probably find many from your high school.. The social ones that got good grades but weren't intellectual or too into academics. So if that sounds good, you might like Binghamton. it used to be a smaller school so there were only a couple of students from most high schools. It's opened its doors so it takes way more students overall and many from each high school. So if you liked high school, this is like 4 more years but with way more freedom. It is jam packed with students and wants to increase the number of students even more. It could be hard to get classes cause there are too many students but it still has great recreation and isn't that really what Binghamton University prides itself on. Great volleyball and dorms to gush over. We call it camp Binghamton. It's probably the least intellectual climate you can find in a college. But everyone is hooked into social media. You won't find any intellectual snobs at Binghamton University. You can even tell that from what people discuss in the reviews. It's all about the parties and social stuff and some recreational stuff. But intellectual, not at all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SUNY Binghamton is more than your ordinary school; aside the usual partying, high-skill-high reward classes and extracurricular activities, this is a college stabilized through its unity of its students and staff. The encouragement of people to participate in various different classes, clubs or other activities, respectful and kind views towards all races and ethnicity, clean facilities and high school spirits keep people safe, happy and united! There's classes for everyone to take and enjoy (or simply gain knowledge and credit)!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When college application season rolled around my senior year, I knew I'd be attending a state school due to how much cheaper it was. Given this, I was slightly worried that I may not receive an education on par with someone who could afford a four year private institution. However, since I came to Binghamton, I have been receiving an excellent education at a vigorous pace. Binghamton has amazing facilities, faculty and overall environment, and I am very proud to say that I attend this university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Through the National Student Exchange (NSE), I chose to be a visiting student at Binghamton University for the spring semester of my freshman year of college. I chose to go to the Binghamton campus because of the vast number of advanced social sciences classes I would be able to take and the low SUNY tuition I would have to pay to study there. I was also considered transferring full time in the fall to another university and wanted to experience a campus completely different than my own (SUNY Stony Brook). My interactions with the university were more similar to those of a transfer student as opposed to a matriculated freshman, although I had a greater priority when it came to selecting my classes than most permanent transfer students. I was able to take 3 300+ level classes , one even being a graduate level class, all relevant to my desired major of criminal justice. Each of my classes had less than 40 students in them and were taught by excellent professors who, in addition to having PhDs in their subject areas, had a zeal for teaching and research. The workload was heavy in comparison to my fall semester at SUNY Stony Brook, but I loved my classes enough to put in a couple extra hours at the library each day. Despite enjoying my Bing experience while I was in class, the times that I wasn't were rather drab. I was placed in the Hillside apartments, which are significantly detached from the rest of main campus and are often reserved for seniors. As a transfer student who knew no one on campus, living in an apartment caused my social life to be practically non-existent. My nights and weekends were largely spent in my dorm, ordering takeout and studying for next week's exam. The times that I did wander outside my room, I mainly spent time with friends I had made in my classes at on-campus events like the annual Holi celebration or a comedy show. I remember others enjoying going out to parties hosted by the campus's many fraternities and sororities as well. Although the campus isn't booming with social events, I quickly learned that Binghamton University is extremely politically active. It seemed like every week that there was a new protest about everything from getting rid of blue lights and extra police to wanting greater transparency about the school budget. I saw the passion that each student spoke with about improving the university that they call their home away from home. I joined in a couple of student protests about a lack of protection for people of color on campus and created my own political art piece called TellMe! to raise awareness about the issue of mass incarceration in out nation's prisons and jails and placed it in the middle of campus for all to see. I felt the most sense of belonging and community from my fellow students during these acts of protest. Overall, I genuinely enjoyed the time I got to spend at Binghamton University and believe that being there gave me many opportunities that I couldn't have received any other way. I would rate the university campus a 3/5, only deducting points because of the lack of services available to transfer students and the sub-par social scene.
