What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love this school! Not only the academics are great, but the people are very welcoming and I have made my best friends here. I am very close with many of the professors as well, they are all very personable and willing to help you. I have just graduated and could not have picked a better school for me. The school is very laid back with a lot of things because there is such a huge party/going out scene. If you aren't into being very social then I would look into another school because the city of Cortland doesn't have much to do if you don't party. Syracuse and Ithaca are 30-45 minutes away and they both make a fun day getaway on a weekend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My passion for pursuing a career in the medical field has grown tremendously since I've attended SUNY CORTLAND. My interest is mainly in biomedical sciences and SUNY Cortland has provided me with such a vast amount of opportunities in perusing this major. As of freshman year, they prepare you with classes you'll need for your major so you don't have to worry about what classes you should take during your first year.My Professor where always ready to help and are prepared to keep their students on track by providing tutoring as well as in-class help. The school is just as beautiful as its surroundings, and although it may seem like a quiet place there is always activities to part take in. Staff and students are all genuinely kind you'll find yourself making friends with just about anybody. I genuinely can say SUNY Cortland is one of the best SUNY schools out there and I hope more students will take the time to learn about it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love that the students are very supportive of the school, you see students wearing Cortland gear everywhere. The sports are a huge thing and that is something I enjoy very much. There looks to be something to do when there is free time. The campus is gorgeous and there are many opportunities for me to choose a major in a sports environment, making it my dream school.

SUNY Cortland - A Home Away From Home

SUNY Cortland was a true home away from home. In the warmer months SUNY Cortland students are out on the lawns throwing a football and eating their lunches outside to soak up the Vitamin D. Although, most of the months are colder, there is always something fun to do with the new student life center. If you are not much of an athlete, the student life center has a game room, ping pong tables, and pool tables. The famous CORTACA game keeps all of the students looking forward to the same thing year after year. SUNY Cortland makes you feel confident and comfortable on their safe campus. SUNY Cortland is where you will make life long friends in your major, or from living in the spacious dorm rooms. As for the academics, which is why we go to college in the first place, is outstanding. If you want to pursue a teaching degree, this is the college for you. Many individuals continue on with education after graduating from SUNY Cortland, which shows that the school prepares students for higher education and successful careers. SUNY Cortland is an amazing college to created spectacular memories.

Candy Land

SUNY Cortland is my favorite place on earth. It may not be the D1 School a lot of people hope for coming out of college, but the school spirit here is AMAZING. The nightlife is repetitive but never seems to get boring, I love being involved on campus here. Originally want to Coastal Carolina and Cortland takes the win for everything except its frigid temperatures.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself that making something productive out of yourself doesn't mean you have to leave home and take the biggest leap you can. When I moved four hours from home and took on a major I couldn't stay passionate about I became a different person that I didn't like and hated the entire experience. Once I finally realized that I needed to move closer to home to be near my family and do something I was more passionate about, I was much happier and far more successful. I would tell my high school self to truly look into what you're interested in and passionate about, not just traditional fields or by subject matter. Also, don't discredit two year schools, they're the first step in gaining a cost effective degree and transitioning yourself for the next.

What's unique about your campus?

SUNY Cortland is one of the best full communities for a college I've ever experienced. Situated in a small town in central New York it's close enough to other areas and has plenty of stuff to do but doesn't give you that large college feel. Everyone is friendly and you become a family especially as an alumni. Everyone who is part of the college is passionate about it and it really makes you feel like you're part of something important.

One thing SUNY Cortland is known for is its great professors and its sports. There is always lots of school spirit.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Balance. That's the one word that comes to mind when I think about college. If I could go back in time, I would tell myself how important it is to have balance. Everyone knows you go to college to learn and get an education. But it is more than just that. College is about having fun, meeting people, trying new things, and stepping out of your confort zone. But in order to successfully do this, you need to have BALANCE. You need to be able to balance the fun and the education parts of college. And fun doesn't always mean partying like people think. Whether it's going to the library, hanging with floor mates watching TV, studying for an upcoming exam, grabbing a bite to eat, going to the gym, meeting with a club you just joined, or the tons of other things that college campus's offer, the most important thing is to be able to balance all of these things. If you are able to balance these things, I think you would make the most of your time at college. That is the advice I would give myself if I could go back in time.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Suny Cortland is an athletic, fun, and energetic school where the classes (for me at least) are fun and active and the tests challenging enough to make you really think out scenerios that will only help you in the future. So much is being learned everyday at Cortland, and so many lifetime friends are made.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and give myself advice in highschool knowing what I know now, I would tell myself to cheer up because college is so much better and more fun than high school. I would tell myself to find something that I'm passionate about (basketball) and stick with it. I would also tell myself to stick it out and play basketball in college because playing a sport in college is so much more impotant than anything else (besides school) that's going on in my high school life. I would tell myself that high school is not even the start of my life, but once college starts, I have 4 years to get it right and work as hard as possible to graduate on time from 1 college. There are many things that I would do different, but the biggest thing that I wish I could change everyday is rewinding to my last high school basketball game where I decided to "throw in the towel" and suck it up and play in college. I had an opportunity to do so, and I turned it down. If I could di it again, I'd play basketball.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the parking. Seeing as this school is extremely popular, there are so many students coming everyday for classes and parking spots fill fast. I commute an hour every day to attend this school, so it's hard to time it just right in order to get a close parking spot. Even the senior parking lot tags sell out within the first week of school. Other than the parking, this school is absolutely wonderful. I made a great decision coming here.
