What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have always found SUNY Plattsburgh a wonderful college to attend. The professors are there for the students. Campus improvements are in progress and the food is delicious. The college sports scene is on point. From lacrosse to hockey the teams and students who support the teams are in it for the win. Campus housing and external housing has a lot to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nice place to visit with lake and mountains but very cold (with snow and ice!). Students friendly but due to high crime I'd advise to walk with someone outside of core hours (e.g., after dark my boyfriend came with me ans waited at library for evening classes). The teachers are crabby I guess they are downsizing so for my last 2 terms I had only 3 different ones for all classes. I didn't actually graduate but transferred to SUNY Empire to finish my degree online because I was working and wanted to get out of Plattsburgh. Don't trust the admissions because what they say (and the online pictures) are not what you get at this campus - it is a low quality place so you get what you pay for. Residences are pretty dirty and smell really bad and you can't drink the water but local apartments are cheap - just go beyond walking distance away from campus to avoid the high crime. There is a Walmart in town!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Spooky place not many faculty around only students and a few adjuncts seems like an apocalypse. Same teach for five classes online or in class very unproductive and materials taken from Internet. I can learn by myself better and just found out degree is not accepted at most other schools so waste of my student loan and state grant. False advertising - not what they tell you during emails and admissions. Beware.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SUNY Plattsburgh do not have a good nursing program because they are broke and hire adjuncts without degrees or real experience. The local hospital was taken over and run by Vermont (the adjacent state) and they don't like giving hours to Plattsburgh students! They bribe you and ask you to pretend you are happy when accreditation reviewers arrive. It is unsafe and my boyfriend is getting tired of driving me to campus (just glad I don't have in the dorms where the smell of vomit and other things is obvious). The food and water are so contaminated they post boil orders almost daily. The web site pictures are not representative of what actually happens. Students have been killed, raped, robbed, and many crimes. I transferred out in my last year so I can get a reputable college on my final transcript.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Not safe, rampant drug use (many student arrests in media). For a African-American woman this campus don't do it's job. People with confederate flags (on trucks) often come through the campus and scream racist remarks to students. The community is non accepting and make it clear when you all come into contact off campus. In 2018 they fired Chief Diversity Officer for raping a student, https://www.northcountrypublicradio.org/news/story/36639/20180718/suny-fires-wiley-who-shaped-north-country-debate-on-race

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A hidden gem. I love it here. Professors are accessible beyond regular office hours. Engaging curriculum. Beautiful campus. Parking needs improvement, there just isn’t enough. Class sizes are very large. I would like to see more course offerings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SUNY Plattsburgh is okay. There could be a lot more involvement on campus and better safety rules. There's not much to do on campus and around the town. The education is good and I feel like I would graduate well prepared for my career field. The professors are respectful and helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the classes I’ve taken are great and the teachers are friendly and helpful. The people here are friendly. The campus is located close to shops and the mall. SUNY Plattsburgh is also close to Vermont and Canada if you want to get away for the weekend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everything seemed to be very set up. Like they made sure everyone was on their best behavior before the students arrived. A few months after my visit. A white privileged student posted on Snapchat saying “ I’m lynching niggers tonight” it took administration 2 days and extensive protest from students of color to take action against this. They did not care for our safety or how others spoke about us.
