What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is just my opinion. The fact that apparently only 8% of those accepted choose to attend means others share this view. Do your homework. Don't just read their PR. Binghamton University is a mediocre mid sized public university in an isolated economically depressed region in a lousy university system that's been squeezed financially since inception. Admin's goals= 20K students by 2020 without improving any resources. This site shows a much lower number but their goal is 20,000 students by Fall 2020 and no increase in instructors. How's that gonna work? Place is busting at the seams. Student can't get basic resources/advising/seats in library/anything. A fine example of a promise kept-that no SUNY will ever compete with private schools. It doesn't come close in any way. Don't be fooled by slogans or their relentless PR. Do your homework. If you want to avoid being victimized, avoid down town Binghamton. Look at the crime rate in Binghamton itself. That's where crime against students would be reported. Ignore BU crime data cause it doesn't include off campus crime. Binghamton City is chronically depressed, overrun with gangs. Search Binghamton & "gangs". The school tries to project an image of "public Ivy". It's not close. Look like students have strong stats? That's cause a large % are accepted for spring so their data can be excluded from the Common Data Set stats. Binghamton 's PR actively deceives. They really do postpone admissions for the student they want to accept but who have lousy stats. That means the student body is not as the stats make it appear. The place would improve if only they'd put some resources in creating a decent university. They could not care less about their undergraduate students. Do you think the schools' PR is accurate? Once you search and read "The Kaye Report" & "Binghamton University" consider if you think that they were only lying about sports? Do you think it has stopped. Think again! The administration is even more corrupt than stated in that report. Once the university was caught in a web of corruption they were forced to investigate the corruption but they were also given a lot of latitude. Did they investigate honestly? Did they approach the investigation with the hope of coming clean? Doesn't appear so. In fact the university violated laws by carefully selecting a law firm to investigate that had lawyers they thought would be favorable towards the school (friends with the corrupt president). The university skirted the law to sign that firm despite the fact that they had to violate other laws to do so. Then the University was fined for the violations. They must have known that would happen but they must have had so much they wanted to remain hidden that it was worth the fine to ensure that the investigators were their friends. That really says it all. And if you think corruption on the part of the administration is irrelevent to college students you are mistaken. It is only irrelevent if the college student does not encounter any problems. But if the student has to rely on the administration to be honest, the Kaye Report becomes relevant. Send your kid there at your own risk! I wouldn't! Yes it's a best buy. Walmart is a best buy. Nordstroms isn't. McDonalds is a best buy. The Four Horsemen isn't a best buy. Which do you want?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

the school is generally more focused on their reputation. They claim it is affordable but that is not the case for everyone. Some professors are there to teach as a secondary, with their research coming first. You have to find your niche to really be happy.

I am proud to have received college education at this school. It is by far the best value institution I have ever attended. Love the professors! Binghamton University has produced many generations of well educated, curious, and ambitious graduates. Go Bearcats!

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.
