What is your overall opinion of this school?

SUNY purchase is a college filled with ambitious and interesting folk. There is plenty to do and also company to bring with you, everywhere on campus there is a friendly attitude and not a bad place to make a friend or two. Although there are no real options for dining out around the campus kitchens are quite reasonable. All this said, I think SUNY purchase of Harrison, NY is a good friendly, affordable school for advocates of art culture.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy Purchase College's vibrant lifestyle. The look of the campus may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the surrounding woods and fields are breathtaking. Much of the academics on campus are interesting and different compared to what I've seen at other colleges and many of the professors are fun and engaging with their classes. Plus the extracurricular activities are constantly happening on campus whether they're student-run or done through the campus. Many of the facilities on campus are there to be a useful resource for any who need it, like the Office of Disability Resources (ODR) asks students on campus to help others out by sharing notes for their classes so the student who asked for their help can learn and have the necessary material they need for the class the next time they meet. Purchase, in my mind, is a grand choice for anyone looking to get into an acting, dance, music, liberal arts, and even a biology major (I've heard some good things from others), the college has tremendous resources and a great reputation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purchase is a place where young adults can blossom into the self sufficient, respectable members of society. This campus teaches you how to communicate with people from completely different backgrounds,cultures,and view. Purchase teaches you the purpose of community and self expression. Students here are given the freedom to identify as anyone they may chose. A great thing about the professors here is that before they teach anything they want to get to know the students. They learn about their backgrounds, strengths and weaknesses and most importantly, their pronouns. Whether that be he/his/him, she/her/hers, or they/them/their professors and students make an effort to make sure every single person is being referenced to correctly. Purchase is extremely aware of other peoples comfortably and wants this campus to be as self accepting and welcoming as possible. Students express themselves through fashion, artwork, poems, and music making this campus always full of life and spirit.There is always fun activities going on throughout the week to keep students engaged in not only the community but with one another as well.Karaoke Night, Open Mic, and Puppy Play are all things that this campus offers,and students value. Purchase is also a place where you can rise up in a leadership position! After only going here for a semester I am already a choreographer teaching an extremely talented group of students dance moves. I have never been in a place that is so accepting and fearless of judgement. Purchase is a place where teenagers can flourish to their best potential.Everyone shines at Purchase!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Even though this is my first semester at SUNY Purchase I have experienced a lot. Throughout the short 4 months that I have been at this school, I have learned about the good, bad and ugly things about attending and living on a campus. One thing that I have learned is that know who to trust. The people that you are friends are with at the beginning your freshman year may not be friends with you at the end of your senior year, just like experienced in high school all friendships are bound to change, throughout your college and high school career. Another thing that I have experience is time management. I feel like I have grown in managing my time because in high school I was bad at it but Purchase has helped me learn to focus better and achieve goals, as well as turning in assignments on time. Purchase College has also taught me not to blame anyone else if you don’t turn in your assignments on time. Also, I learned that college in a way is nothing like high school because professors don’t put as much pressure on you to remind you to do assignments. But I have also experienced that it depends from each professor. If I could think of one way that I changed SUNY Purchase, I would say that is the impact I made on other people and the possible effect I may have on them in the future. Also, I would say that I changed this college by sharing my perspectives and thoughts by interacting in its clubs and activities and over all I have enjoyed my time at SUNY Purchase.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purchase College taught me what was needed to know to be a professional in my field. My professors are very engaging and supportive. The campus family is like no other relationship you have anywhere else. Purchase students are fiercely passionate, intelligent, caring, and compassionate. Here I have met some of the most talented and brilliant people in the world! Purchase is a great choice for those looking to be challenged.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SUNY Purchase is a great school for students who want to shine. Everyone can be themselves and people are so nice to get a long with. The classes are great and the teachers always help one on one when needed. I love the experience that I am getting here and I cannot wait for more years to come.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a great school. the faculty helps students a lot and has a lot of resources for students to help them with class or everyday life. Stress management is a big thing here and they ofter offer yoga classes to all students and counsellors on call or by appointment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love the professors. I've had really helpful and kind professors who are also really passionate about what they're teaching. That's very important to me. I think White Plains is so ugly and since the whole area around campus is a very rich community, it's hard to afford housing. The food is alright. It doesn't make me want to barf and that's a plus! It's nice that there are malls nearby for dorm room needs. The party seen could be better but it's not too bad. I think the Stood is really cool. Overall, I love the school so much because of the type of people who go there. I have made some amazing friends!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy Purchase it's just we need to find a way to balance the different cultures and by bringing them together make a proud conglomerate culture. We have the artsy students, the athletes and casual sport players, we of course have the students who are focused strictly on academics, we have very political students, and we also have a huge group of LGBTQ students all these groups don't commingle well enough and support each other we have acceptance for the most parts but the groups complain and have things to say behind the backs of others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a difficult rating form as most of it doesn't apply to students with my major - Dance. SUNY at Purchase College is known for the quality of its dance program and I've found it to be exactly what I was looking for and exactly what I needed to pursue excellence. The campus is out in the middle of nowhere but NYC is about an hour or so away by train so it is very accessible. There are alternatives to the dining hall (restaurants on campus where you can use your food vouchers) and although the freshman housing is probably typical, if you are always dancing and busy you get used to it. I'd recommend my school to anyone who is serious about dance!
