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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school and could not see myself going anywhere else. Some dining halls are better than others. When it comes to getting involved, there is so much to choose from. For those not involved in sports or extra-curriculars, there is always something going on on campus. Class sizes (depending on the class) are reasonable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here at Binghamton University!! The students are driven to succeed and, by surrounding yourself with a good group of friends, you will too. There are SO many opportunities for professional development, leadership experience, jobs and internships, fun and school clubs, and more. I recently went on an all-expenses-paid professional development and networking retreat to the Pocono Mountains! There are hundreds of clubs from Habitat for Humanity to Cheese Club. There are fun events that happen throughout the year in town too. A decision to attend Binghamton University is a decision well made!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is one of the best SUNY's. Students know how to have fun but they also know how to be responsible and get the work done. We know that there is a time and place for everything. The demographics aren't extremely varied with the majority of the school being white, but there is a place for everyone here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The food in the dining hall tasted good than usual . The school is huge & have multiple schools . There are over 300 clubs & activities to join so students always have something to do on the weekends . The dorms are average sized which is a good thing because it has enough space for everyone that will be staying there . Also , the school doesn't have a variety of people from different races .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While there is room for improvement in increasing the diversity, there isn't much else to complain about. For a university, we have such a small community which plays a role in the friends and experiences we make. The classes are decently sized and there are so many resources to help you succeed. It really feels like the professors want you to be your best self.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it's a great school. The academic programs are very strong, and the people are very intelligent. The surrounding area is pretty good also, and Vestal Parkway has basically any store/ restaurant you could want (Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Movie Theater, Payless, Applebee's, IHOP, Chipotle, Insomnia, etc.)
