Since I am an online student from SUNY Empire State College, I cannot say much about the on-campus experience. But what I can say, is that regardless of your mode of study, SUNY Empire is there to bring the best possible education they can possibly offer you. Many of the classmates I share classes with are people who are trying to get an education that will help them improve their life. Whether it be parents, people who need to work full time jobs to make a living, or young adults, like myself, who just seem to fare better studying this way, SUNY Empire supports them. I have never been as excited about getting an education until I started at SUNY Empire. I am so glad and fortunate to be able to earn my degree through them!
When I first graduated high school, I was entering community college unsure of what I wanted to pursue. I felt rushed into plans, loans, and debt. This led to anxiety and depression issues I had in my late teens. I had to go through several colleges until I found one that was right for me. This college was the best choice I have made to pursue in obtaining a degree in such a long time. It took me a while to find a college that I can stick with and achieve goals. I would recommend this college to anyone.
Overall I believe is a great school. Professors are always answering and eager to help. Classes are smaller and the contracts are very clear and understanding. I am right now completing my Bachelors but afterward pursue my Masters. They also assigned you with a mentor to guide you through your educational journey. And they are rated #1 in student satisfaction, which I greatly appreciate every single day. Mostly for students like myself, who are a non-traditional student. Faculty and staff are always very generous, caring and very helpful. I seriously appreciate being told about this amazing school. Which you can maintain your regular life and still obtain your undergrad or grad degrees.
I love SUNY Empire State College. I was nervous to return to school, but they made the process from the beginning and currently - a breeze. I always feel supported by my mentor and my professors. The school as a whole is unique and just well put together. I would recommend this school to all my friends and family.

I have gained a lot from my college experience. College has given me a broader perspective on life and has taught me things that I otherwise would never have been exposed to. I'm very thankful that I had the oppurtunity to complete my undergraduate degree and I truly hope to continue on and complete a masters degree as well. I believe that education is extremely important for the future of individuals as well as the the future of this country. Education provides countless oppurtunities for so many individuals and I am privileged to be one of those who will be able to take advantaged of the oppurtunities available.
Suny Empire offers both a multicultural atmosphere, and the flexibility to attend courses by offering both standard college courses as well as distance learning courses.
Empire State College is a flexible school, it allows adults to work around their bussy schedule
Online school isn't easy. You really have to be motivated, but you learn just as much if not more than in the classroom. Distance learning is a wonderful way to get a degree while you work or raise a family!
If you need the discipline of a classroom setting, this may not be the college for you. There are study groups that meet at certain times, there are online classes and independant study classes. For the independant study classes you meet one on one with a mentor who gives you a certain amountof work to complete. It is great for busy adults, who work and have families. The mentors work with you to schedule appointments areound your personal schedule.
that online degrees from reputable schools are just as important and valid than that of a brick and mortar degree learning on campus
Fun adults working on their degree
I personally found it difficult to particpate in the online classes. I was told that the whole online class thing was easy but not for me. going to the campus was much better for me.
Suny Empire offered the opportunity for myself, as an older student, the accessibility of attending courses online with the same benefits I would have received had I attended in person. The Center for Distance Learning has allowed me to make room around my work schedule and that of my two small children to be able to achieve my lifetime goal of becoming a teacher. I receive just as much Professor/Counselor support that I would have had I been attending courses on campus and am still able to experience a true collegiate adventure.
self-designing the course work
There is no worst thing to name about my school. The experience can be worst if you are not able to handle the work load.
