At SUNY Cortland there are such great opportunities for any type of student. There are so many sports teams, club teams, intramurals, along with organizations like AIDS Awareness, NYPIRG, sororities, fraternities, art clubs, writing clubs. There is honestly something to do here for anyone who is willing to try something new. I'm currently involved in a water skiing team. Everyone is encourged to try something new, no one judges your knowledge or skill level. I played Melonball for the first time and I participated in community service events and took a trip to a Native Indian reservation.
From SUNY Cortland I have really been able to put myself in situations and among people I never would have had the opportunity to before. I have pushed myself to do things such as try certain clubs or intramural activities. Cortland invites everyone to try anything they would like. Normally SUNY Cortland is known for it's athletics and physical education majors, however, I am a community health major and I fit right in. Many of my friends are in majors such as Criminology, Math education, sports training, and even in graduate program for medical. The campus is close to downtown and beautiful, insight of mountians and green hills. I have made great friends at Cortland, ones that will outlast my school years and I have learned many valuble lessons and I am only a freshman. I cannot wait to see what else I try, who else I meet, and what else is there for me to learn.
The most frustrating thing about SUNY Cortland is that it's 30-45 minutes from any major cities such as Binghamton and Syracuse. Coming from Long Island I am used to city life and busy streets. There is a great downtown life though with a few bars and places to eat, although it is small, its definately adaquite. Although there is no pressure what-so-ever to join a sorority or sports team, if you are not involved in any clubs or activities you definately get bored easily.

There is a real sense of commeraderie between students at Cortland. THere is great support academically and socially. I have personally used the tutoring services and am a part of the Non-Traditional Students Organization. The NTSO makes a great difference to those of us that are older or have children or spouses, etc!
Be social, get involved. There are scholarships that depend on it and it really helps to have friends to see you through. It's OK to try different things and to go to college not sure of what you want to be. It's OK to be a kid for another 4 years.
There are some faculty members who are really old at Cortland. It would be nice if they could be replaced, however there is currently a hiring freeze in NY state.

It is known for being a party school. But it also is a tough school to get into. In addition it is also known for its athletics. The sports teams usually do well and everyone that comes to the school is usually pretty active.
I would of told myself to work harder in school and receive better grades. I think sometimes i did not work as hard as i could of. But other than that i wouldnt tell myself anything else. I like new things and new experiences and i adjust to new things well.
I would of liked more details on my living situation, but that has nothing to do with the school. Because i live off campus.

I would tell myself to make many friends from all cultures, but make sure that you balance your social life with your academic life. For example, do not forget about the readings that your professor assigns. You have to read to succeed in school, because if you do not you will be behind and it will be very hard to catch up with the rest of the class. I would also tell myself to get more involved in on campus activities. You can make many life long friends on campus and have a great time. This also helps pass the time on the weekend, as it is a way to have fun without alcohol. Dont go to school looking to party. Instead, go to school looking for friends, a new outlook on life, and direction towards your future. With this information, you can get the most out of your college experience and make your life long goals a reality.
I think that there are two types of people that should attend Cortland. One being future teachers, especially Special Education majors, because Cortland has a great Inclusive Special Ed program as well as a great Education program as a whole. Second, students who are very involved in sports will find Cortland great because of the many sport based activities and the great amount of school spirit surrounding sporting events.
I think that the most frustrating thing about my school is the fact that it is hard for me to pay for. I feel that being in the middle class hurts me when it comes to paying for my education, because it is hard for me to afford the tuition and I do not recieve that much financial aid because of my parents income. With their income alone and the little financial aid that I recieve, it is hard for me to afford school tuition, especially now that my sister is entering college next year.

SUNY Cortland is a great mid sized college that offers a friendly campus atmosphere with various athletic and extra curricular activities.
If I were given the opportunity to go back in time there would be alot of words of advice I would give to myself as a high school senior. The big thing that I had to learn when I went away to school was time management. I would tell myself that while you may be in class for less hours per day then you are in high school, the difference in out of class work is tremendous. It is crucial to plan your out of class time so that the appropiate amount of studying, planning, and homework may be done. Other words of advice I would give myself is to have an open mind to new things and people as college can be a tremendous once in a lifetime experience that may change you forever. Lastly, the advice I would give myself is to act like a professional. College is a stepping stone to a lifetime career which will define you. Being prepared and acting in a professional manor will only put you ahead of your competition .
SUNY Cortland cab have some harsh weather in the winter months making it harder to get to class.

"Don't hold back" is one thing I would say to myself if I could go back in time. Let yourself live every moment to its fullest and appreciate all the people you meet and don't let anyone hold you back from anything; do what makes you happy. Another thing I would tell myself is "School comes first!". Don't get behind on your work and always go to class. Professors in college aren't like your high school teachers, they aren't going to remind you what is due or when it's due, you're going to have to stay on top of it all by yourself. You're a big kid now and it's on you to make something of yourself and make yourself proud. Also, don't be afraid of your professors. They are there to help you out too and they are more than willing to assist you with anything you need.
Don't take advantage of all the parties too quickly. You're there for 4 years take your time. I wish I had done so. I was so caught up in everything and enjoying myself that my academics took a backseat to my partying and my gpa suffered from it. I currently hav a 2.3 and i want to go to law school so I'll be working extra hard in the months to come. Remember that school comes first and you are paying however much to get an education not a beer belly.
My school is a great school and I love everything about it. The college is sort of in the middle of no where but the people you meet are so friendly and polite. The kind of person that should go to this school are people who want to have fun but also know that school comes first.

Suny Cortland is and amazing place to go in order to gain the necessary education you need to further your academic career but not only that to meet a great bunch of people that you will have a relationship with for the rest of your life!
My classmates are really nice. There are a mixture of freshman, sophmores, juniors, and seniors depending on the classes that you take however at Cortland the only time you are really mixed is at a lecture class. Everyone is very friendly and always willing to help you all you have to do is not be afraid to ask and the actually ask! When in college most people are in the same boat as you just some have a little bit more experience and if you are willing to take the time to ask they will help!
College is an experience that no one can ever prepare you for! A lot of people such as older siblings, parents, teachers, etc. can tell you what to look forward to but it's definitely an experience that has to be fulfilled by you and only you inorder to get the full affect. The transition is tough! Some high schools such as mine are pretty easy to learn the necessary things to just get by with an easy A but college is very different. No one in college is there to wake you up in the morning for class, the professors do not care whether you study or not, they don't care if you pass or fail. It's up to you to do it for yourself! You do a lot of growing up just make sure to act like the adult that you have become when you accepted your spot in college. Also remember that being a college student is your fulltime job so take it seriously! You may be totally concerned with the "parties" but you have to learn to balance out your social and academic life. Know your priorities and you will have a good firstyear!

Making the transition from a high school senior to a college freshman can be rough. The workload of a high school senior getting ready to graduate can be overwhelming. The advice I would give to myself would be to know your priorities as a senior in high school and trying to get into the college you want. I would suggest getting your financial aid taken care of as soon as its available to increase your chances towards grants and other student aid. Getting ready for graduation is already enough to worry about along with getting ready for college. Learning to apply to the colleges and getting your finances and classes taken care of ,is the first to do, while also getting living situations figured out. The transition is hectic at times but well worth it in the end. Just keep your head held high and make lists of what you need to do and there deadlines.

It is probably best known for its sports program. It is one of the best DIII schools in a lot of its athletic programs. It also has a large education program, in particular Physical Education.
The main advice I would give myself as a high school senior would be to not slack off as much as I did, and as many did, during Senior year. I needed to better prepare myself mentally for the college lifestyle that I was entering into, and I did not feel as prepared as I thought I would be. So I would tell myself to mentally prepare for college and work on procrastinating less. Procrastination is still an issue that most students face today so it is important to change in high school so that one can go into college more prepared and deal with the large increase in workload. I would also tell myself to finish all of my work and put enought effort into my work so that it was always a product that I could be proud of. By caring about my work more in high school, it would have allowed me to easily put in the effort I needed once I got to college.
The best thing about my school is that it is a very sport-oriented campus. Many people on campus are athletic, enjoy working out, and play intramural sports if they are not on a varsity team. Students on campus have a lot of school pride and attend sports games to support our teams.

Agenda book, agenda book, agenda book. My school district used aenda books from 5th grade on. We were required to have them filled in daily and signed by our parents in the early grades, but as we got older it was more of a choice. I got lazy in high school and didn't utilize it much. I wish it had become a habit because even though I was a diligent student, I learned early on in college that time management was crutial. After a while I needed to start using an organizer si I ws able to map out what I needed to accomplish for each week. Once I got in the habit of this I felt less stressed and work didn't seem so overwhelmng.
The kind of person that should attend SUNY Cortland should be self motivated and self disciplined with the ability to learn how to balance all the opportunities and experiences that Cortland has to offer. It is not a "party school", but a valuable stepping stone to life as an adult. Cortland has an awesome sports program, every club you could imagine, amazing academic opportunities and a super fun social atmosphere, so don't blow it. You become instantly independent when your parents say goodbye, so enjoy the freedom responsibily.
My experience at Cortland to date has been really positive. I was a vey motivated student in High school so I thought the academics at college would be easy, I learned quickly that I needed to think differently. I needed to learn how to manage my time in a very different way then I was used to. Initially, I was frustrated that I had to take a 1 credit core class, which is mandated because it addresses the first year questions and problems that I faced, it ultimately made my adjustment to college life a succcessful one.
