It’s a SUNY school, you get what you pay for but it generally is well worth it.
Naive, curious, open to learn; I came into Suny Plattsburgh as a freshman in 2014. I had not done my research or visited the school but I knew this would be my home for the next four years and I had to make the best of it. I came in undeclared and now I am a Biology and Nutrition double major hoping to get into the prestigious Nursing program at Plattsburgh state. I have grown to appreciate Plattsburgh as well as all the new faces I met. With the clubs, teams and groups that Plattsburgh has to offer, I found my niche by joining the African unity club as well as the cheer leading team. I believe I have made some lifelong friends and will continue to grow with them. Furthermore, the school stresses student safety when it comes to alcohol use, rape and other activities college students might get themselves into. This is very important for the safety of everyone and also helping ignorant or inexperienced student to know some of the dangers they can face and how to handle the situations as well as where and how to get help. Academically, I had advisers and peers talk to me to steer me in the direction that would benefit me. I always knew I would be in the medical field but finding what I was most passionate about was a challenge. I had multiple counselors who I had access to and still have access to and they helped me reach my decision of hoping to become a nurse. Plattsburgh is a place for anyone who is looking for a new perspective, a challenge as well as personal growth. I have grown and hope to continue growing.
I believe that SUNY College at Plattsburgh is a quality school and is more than worth the price. For such a cheap school Plattsburgh provides so much for the students.
The housing on campus is absolutely terrific and the residence life staff are some of the nicest people ever.
Overall the campus feels more like home than any other campus I’ve been on.

Take a breath your first day and relax. Don't worry so much about how you look or if people are going to like you. There are going to be people who dont accept you for who you are but that is okay because they aren't worth your time anyway. Take your academics seriously, but also know that you need to have some fun. If you don't do well on a test, don't sit at home and cry about it. Tell yourself that the next text you will study harder and you will get a better grade. Never treat someone badly and never judge anyone. You aren't perfect and you have made mistakes, so who are you to judge others. Just remember that "Life is short, so live it. Love is rare, so grab it. Anger is bad, so dump it. Fear is awful, so face it. Memories are sweet. So cherish them." You are going to be fine I promise. Just keep your head held high and never let anyone tear you down.
My classmates are hungover, unwiling, unenthusiastic and wished partying was a major.
The hands on and group activities in the class room are great things that help learning. I also enjoy the small size of the classrooms, this makes it more one on one with the professorers.
A person who is motivated and has good time management skills.
Plattsburgh State is an extremely open environment where I feel safe and comfortable to meet my social, academic and personal goals.
Exactly how long it would take to get home.
A non-social one.
Parties and the environment, hiking, snowboarding, etc.
The dining halls!! The food is actually really good, too good in fact. Know how to control yourself and maintain a proper diet and balance when choosing which foods to eat. They are always there, you have four years to explore the different wonders of each and every food there is
I brag most about the program I am currently in. I am a social work major at Suny Plattsburgh. I tell me friends how wonderful and knowledgeable my teachers are. This is a great program at Plattsburgh that needs to be acknowledged more by the school.
It gets really cold and snows for the majority of the year. Temperatures tend to go below freezing, but you get used to it. I just suggest that if you're planning on coming here you should enjoy the winter time.
The academics are okay but the online gradings system and the school's website are simply terrible so contacting your professors or finding out your grades can be a nightmare.
Slacklining is pretty popular, same with the outing club.
This school is good, they have some great programs like Expeditionary Studies, which I took myself. The on-campus experience is pretty bad IMO, and others agree. The buildings are pretty dull and gloomy, the weather is unpredictable and often shitty. The campus food selection leaves a LOT to be desired. On the bright side there are a fair amount of nice students, and the guy:girl ratio is in favor of the guys.
Can't really think of one. If there is one it would probably be they think their parties are nicer than they actually are.
