This is my opinion but poor ratings problem remote state school surrounded by zilch. No college town. A town with zilch but the school and sky high crime. Brain drain city. Universities should be places that you can trust. Don't trust this school and people who run it. If you are from a marginalized group and you end up being harmed, you will have no recourse. Others commented on this. Sociology may be the worst but I bet the others are as bad. This is a high risk school for many reasons. If you think crime low you are wrong. If you are hurt or worse on campus, forget getting help. And they keep a lot hush hush so nobody knows what happened. Even when a murderer was on the loose students were not informed. Students are not informed about dangers on campus. You think they file police reports on all the crimes? There is no report from when I was victimized so can't trust their crime stats.. You think NY State would be honest. forget that. Their PR is far from true about everything. Do not believe the crime stats reported on line or by the school. One chart says there was only 1 murder in 2018 but there were 2. If they can't get that number right you know other things are off too. I was victimized, reported what happened and no police report of that. Forget getting help or truthfulness by them. Look everything up yourself. Do not believe their dishonest PR. Sites reporting BU crime stats cover irrelevant Vestal crime stats. The social stuff and classes are in Binghamton where crime rise has been spectacular with rate is 798.2. This year Binghamton was rated 2nd only to Buffalo in terms of crime rates for NY cities. It is a dangerous place. It looks impossible cause it seems rural and peaceful. There is huge gang activity. The rates are also deceptive because the crime is focused primarily in the places students spend time with almost no crime in other areas. The crime stats in where students spend time are far higher than the totals suggest. It is unsafe and forget getting someone to help if something happens.
I believe that Binghamtkn js a pretty decent school depending on your major. The arts department could definitely use more attention but for business and STEM, the school has a lot of opportunities
There are a lot of positive's to attending Bing! I greatly enjoyed the course availability and the class sizes. The scenery is beautiful and they try to modernize as much as possible. There are a decent amount of student activities and clubs to get involved in! The weather can be a downside as can the lack of diversity.
Place is nothing like what you read. I guess makes sense to rate a school high if you go there so it looks good for you to get a good job. I bet that why the college does not seem anything like the ratings they are high. It is really ugly and nothing like the advertising makes it look. It is one of the ugliest colleges I saw. They put money in sports and the student center. The school does what it can to move up ratings but does nothing to actually improve.

My college experience has let me come into my own. In high school I was an indecisive, shy girl. However, my time at college has made me outgoing, strong and independent. College has forced me to grow not onlyt as a student but as a person too. I have been able to take control of my life and live the way I want. The seperation from the norms of home put me out of my comfort zone yet has made me flourish. As a high school student I never would have dreamed that I would have the confidence to study abroad in the upcoming semester nor would I have believed I would be double majoring. Overall my college experience did not change me, but it let me develop. I honestly do not think the most important part of the college experience is the classes, it is the experiences you have, the people you meet and the memories you will have. I will carry college with me forever because I know it has made me who I am today. I am excited to see where the next year and a half of college will take me!
The school attracts children from all different ethnic and racial backgrounds. The students are motivated, hard working, and determined.
Class sizes at Binghamton are very small. Even for Freshman classes they usually adverage between 20-40 students. Unless you take big lectures, you are likely to be in small discussion classes which means that your teacher will know you name and get to know you personally. The students that go here are hard workers and the class averages are generally high, so don't count on curves. Being a Human Development major I'm in a major that's is greatly changing. The HDEV classes are small and requirements are changing so definitely keep ontop of what your major requirements are.
My school has a large and vibrant Jewish community which is important to me.
The school is very large, but it has good major programs and the class sizes are small. On the flip side of this, since classes are small signing up for the classes you want to take can be a problem. Look forward to taking some early/boring classes the first semester or two. The school has a good reputation with people though, and employers supposedly want to hire students from public colleges because they are well rounded individuals. The dorms are fairly comfortable, and the city surrounding the college has plenty of shopping and entertainment opportunities.
Binghamton is rural and there is not much activity compared to New York City; diverse student population at BU
Yes, they are both very true.
Binghamton offers a great social life, Late Nite Bing happens every weekend and there are always new movies and activities for students to do. The Rat is a bar thats close by that students enjoy going to, and any frat party happening is always only a cab ride away. Either way, whether you're straight-edge or a partier you'll have weekend options that will keep you entertained.
SUNY Binghamton is a large institution that offers excellent coursework, particularly in the humanities, coupled with all the daily priveleges and necessities one would expect from a state school.
It is so cold, and the food can be bad at times. There is a cheating issue, but every college deals with that. There is diversity, but you find that people still cluster around, the asian internationals stick together and the Long Islanders as well. The school is 50% Long Islanders. There is not much to do on the weekends except goto the frat parties.
Getting your bang for the buck! Private school education with a public school pricetag.
Going to Binghamton is like going to an Ivy League except it is affordable and the atmosphere isn't as intense. Students here are just as intelligent and hard working but much more down to earth. Economic status definitely doesn't come into play at Binghamton and that alone makes the experience much more pleasurable.
I wish I had really believed that it was okay to not have a major coming in as a new student. I pressured myself a lot to come up with a major because I thought that would make me more successful, when really I chose the wrong major and became unseccessful. If new students just register for courses that interest them, their interests will spark and an idea for a major will eventually come along without the pressure of forcing yourself into one.
The most frustrating thing about my school is registering for courses. The process is very stressful and courses fill up quickly and student's get closed out.
People shouldn't attend this school if they are not willing to open up and aid others. They shouldn't attend this school if they don't think that they will be able to manage the amount of work given.
When i tell my friends about Binghamton, i brag that its the best public school in the north east. Binghamton is a tough school to get into and a good quality education counts thats why i chose to go here.
Generally anyone can attend this school; whether one is outgoing or shy, they will find a niche in Binghamton.
Yes, but most time than not they are one in the same
No one cares about sports on the whole.
The dorms are livable. They are obviously not the greatest living situation, but no college dorm really is. Binghamton has many different dorm options, varied dependent upon the selected "Living Community" that you choose. The University has 5 different on-campus living communities, each with their own style of dorms. The dorms vary from the corridor double style of Dickinson, to the high-end suite style dorms of Mountainview. Each community also has it's own dining hall nearby.
