ESF is an extremely rigorous environmental science school. At ESF you have the unique opportunity to go to both Syracuse University and ESF. As a result, it becomes very clear that ESF has much more difficult classes. Only consider attending ESF if you are willing to commit the vast majority of your free time toward studying and doing homework because the classes at ESF are extremely difficult.
Awesome teachers in a small setting for most classes. Super cool people that go there. Ypu can also take classes at Syracuse University, so I took a bunch of art classes. Cute little city surrounding it. Overall, no complaints really. Tons of opportunities to be involved in activism and the school has good vibes.
Amazing people and full of those who want to help and support you or even just strike up a conversation about the environment or science in general. The bus trip I participated in to visit the college before I started attending was very life changing and made me feel like this college was perfect for me.
The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) is a college that has motivated, bright students and plenty of opportunities to get involved with research and outreach. ESF is unique in that we are situated directly next to Syracuse University (SU), so we share many of the same resources - fitness facilities, student groups, and classes. Between ESF and SU, there are plenty of classes and activities that will lead to a high quality environmental education. Many ESF grads get jobs in academia, working for the state, or working with local environmental organizations/firms, as ESF provides students with skills necessary to succeed in a variety of positions. ESF students are truly committed to improving our world. If you are passionate about environmental issues, whether it be sustainable agriculture, renewable energy production, climate change, migratory bird patterns, or water resources, this is the college for you! You will receive a quality education and have a great time doing so!

Get involved-it was the best thing I could have done. I met people, learned a lot outside of the classroom, made professional and academic connections and was able to travel!
SUNY ESF is undoubtedly the best environmentally focused school in the northeast where the classes and teachers encourage students to excel in a career-related field immediately after graduation.
The best thing about my school is the attention teachers across campus can give to students, even at the freshman level. The faculty in my department, Environmental Resources and Forest Engineering, take a considerable amount of time out of their schedules to work with the freshman class, talk to us about their research, involve us in department projects and events, advise us in selecting courses, and making us feel comfortable in what is a very difficult major. I would have had a much harder first semester if the faculty had not made us feel so welcome .
friendly, encouraging, lifelong friends.
Our school, the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, is certainly known for it's great concern with all and any environmental issues. Students are often labeled hippies, ecofreaks, environmentalists, and activists. Despite this mix of stereotypes, we are best known for the immense progress we are making and the innovations that come out of our school that help conserve and protect the environment. Despite the small size of the school, we are well-regarded for this. Our faculty are often contacted by private companies and municipal govenrments to advise or work on large engineering, conservation, and remediation projects.

The cold winters. I am not used to winters since I'm from the south and we don't have such winters.
SUNY-ESF is certainly for the environmentally-conscious student, and those that are truly interested in making a difference in the world. There are opportunities for those looking to enter creative, innovative, and meaningful employment fields such as environmental studies and policy, forest biology, and landscape architecture.
We are one of the top 100 schools in the US.
My school is a strict environmental school so it's hard to find classes outside that and clubs outside of environmentalism. We have Syracuse Univeristy to make up for that lack but because of budget cuts we are being limited by the number of SU classes we can take.
