Enriching the lives of people.


A university at which a person of virtually any culture or ethnicity can readily attend without feeling like the odd one out, where a deep and broad education is valued, and where the focus is on the individual student - you don't have to blend in like a wallflower if you don't want to.


The campus is very diverse; the dorm communities all have different atmospheres and there are multiple sections of campus with different feels to them. Binghamton has a closed campus, so the students and the general public do not mingle and the entire campus is gated. It is closed off to unauthorized visitors at ungodly hours of the morning when there shouldn't be any visitors anyway. Starting from right to left when in the middle of campus: Hinman is a cute little resident community with an apartment co op-type feel. There are plenty of fields for outdoor activities in the heart of the community. Mountainview is another community that overlooks the entire campus and is located the farthest away from it, on what seems like a mountain. College In The Woods is a hilly community surrounded by trees (thus it's name). Newing is currently in the midst of construction, with gorgeous new buildings and a very modern look to it. Dickinson is the oldest community, the only one located inside the "brain" right now, and definitely looks the part. As far as academic buildings go, the main part of campus is how any college campus would look, with stone paths for walking between buildings and little cute trees dotting the area. Lower campus is the section with all the science buildings, and has brand new sidewalks and some construction going on.
