Kevin - 10/27/2019

It's simple. If you join the regiment you will hate your everyday life (except weekends if you live nearby) but you will love graduating from here. Earning your Coast Guard license will ensure you get a high paying job quickly. The school also has a great ROTC program, with the selection of active duty or SSO if you choose. Put up with the school for 4 years and you will be set for your life.

Reid - 05/22/2019

It is a great college that will set me up for my future. I am enrolled as a cadet, so upon graduation I will have my coast guard license as well as my Bachelors of Engineering in Naval Architecture. SUNY offers a lot of hands on training as well as adequate sea time. I have also made great contacts throughout my travel with the college. I look forward to graduation and a successful career.

Shevaughn - 03/08/2019

This is an excellent institution.If you want your children to grow as an individual and to become a very disciplined individual they should be guided to do courses which would make them eligible to become a member of the Regiment of Cadets. This group will build you as an individual. It also helps you to conquer your fears as an individual.

Christopher - 05/20/2018

I think that Suny Maritime College is overall a great school, there are many opportunities for us to be prepared for when graduate and go into the real world. The campus life here is great, it's very safe, The academics are good and teachers are available after class to help you if you don't understand what's going on.

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

    If I could go back in time I would certainly have some things to tell myself. I would tell myself that you only live once and life is too sgort to miss out. If theres something you want to do just do it. Also i would tell myself to concentrate just a little bit more on my studies. Although I did good in high school and college, I could have done better. This has nothing to do about getting better grades, but about understanding what it is that I studied. I know so much more now than I did when in high school, but with this knowledge, comes a wish to know and understand more. I want to widen my intellect even more than it has and this would start back in high school.

  6. What are the academics like at your school?

    The classes (besides a few lectures) are a decently small size, conducive to intimate learning. The school's overall GPA standard isn't that high. Somehow a lot of students fail classes repeatedly but manage to eventually pass and graduate. I think it has nothing to do with the faculty; all of my professors thus far have been more than proficient in teaching their subjects well. So the school has low standards. Everything is lenient. It's a good school if you don't want to try too hard for your first year, take it easy.

  9. Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

    The guys are definitely always horny (with so few females on campus). But the regimental students definitely know how to have fun and let loose.

  10. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    If it ain't windy, it ain't Maritime. Unfortunately, that means rain and snow blow sideways. Umbrellas don't cut it. Just wear layers when it's cold and navigate through buildings when it's pouring. Because IT POURS. In buckets... If you smoke, any wind-resistant lighter is a good idea. And go for 100s, because the Maritime wind will smoke half of your cigarette. Because a lot of construction is going on now, and with the snow, they're not giving out parking permits, so tons of students are parking on campus anyway and getting summonses. It's unfair; we need our cars. The furniture in the lounges sucks. Sitting on a couch at a table sucks.

  12. Tell us about the sports scene on campus.

    Football- just won the conference championship, very popular team on campus, also full of cocky jerks. Soccer- just won the conference championship, good luck getting playing time though unless your an outstanding player. Basketball- normal team Baseball- normal team Crew- come with experience Cross country- very fun team Ice hockey- hopefully you dont mind practicing from 12am-2am rugby- not a team i would join Lacrosse- too many people are on this team Sailing- you better be experienced or dont bother joining swimming- very fun team to be a part of but its a bit overcrowded I would say the sports are very mediocre but if your looking to stay in shape and do something extra-curricular then definitely join a team. Its also the best way to make friends.

  13. What are your classes like?

    For the most part my classes are pretty difficult. I am a marine engineering major so I take all engineering classes. Keep in mind I run cross country so I have practice at 5:45am and then from 4:30pm-8pm. I don't get very much free time to do work which makes things harder for me than someone who does not play a sport. Anyways I have found toughest class over the last three semesters has been calculus 1 2 and 3. It is not because the class is necessarily difficult, but I have never had a good math teacher. For the first two semesters I had a teacher named Dr. An. He is asian and can be a little difficult to understand. Its not that he is a bad teacher, but he moves very fast and he is somewhat lazy. He is extremely intelligent so he doesn't realize that some of the stuff he does is way over the heads of his students. I will say that for the majority of his tests he is very fair as long as you are prepared and understand the material. Calculus three has been a completely different experience so far. I have Professor Bogaryan who is by far the worst teacher on the face of this earth. He is some nationality close to Russian. He is very difficult to understand and communicate with. He only has one hand and when he writes on the board I'm pretty sure a two year old could write neater. It has come to the point where I go to the class so that I get credit for attendance and I simply bring my book find what chapter he is going over and I take my own notes and completely ignore everything he is teaching. To summarize this whole thing take Dr. Cole for any math class you can if you attend Maritime College

  16. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    When I first came to the SUNY Maritime College I did not know the regimented program they had would be so strict. I wish I had known about the room and dress inspections as well as the morning formations. Also, about all the rules and regulations we have to follow as freshman. It was unclear to me that we have to earn certain privileges. I did not think the regiment was as military based as I found it to be.
