it's a pretty nice campus, the classes are never cramped and the professors are open to intellectual discussions on the subjects brought up in class. unfortunately there are a handful of teachers that take their tangents too far and waste class time, which might like a good thing except that you start the next class in that ladder you don't have the info that's assumed to be known from the previous.
As an involved student who works on campus and has attended the school for 3 years, I would have to say that SUNY Poly is a good school. I am a Computer Science major, and I want to say that most of the introductory courses I have taken were fine. They were not interesting and amazing, but I understand why I had to take them. A few of the Junior/ Senior level CS courses were interesting and a few were rather horrible. We have a few really amazing CS teachers that make the course really interesting and they challenge you while others are just frustrating. They will teach you one thing and test you on another, or they just won’t teach you anything and will still test you. It is a small school, which I personally like, and if you get involved you will meet a bunch of great people! My first year I was not involved at all and I met some good kids but once I started going to events and working for the school I really did meet a lot of really awesome people!
SUNY is a great school to concentrate on academics. They give you the resources and facilities to succeed with an excellent staff.
Great school for online classes and health information management. The campus is absolutely beautiful and has great scenery. The campus is open and kept very clean, the greens are gorgeous. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Good atmosphere.

Looking back, my college experience was literally nothing like what I thought it would be when I moved on campus freshman year. I have learned so much about myself that living at home and going to community college would have never provided me. I have learned that I can really work hard to earn my grades and still balance a healthly social life. I learned a lot about myself socially as well. I learned that it is true that you should never go to college with your best friend. I learned that I need to be assertive and not let people walk all over me. I learned how to know who my true friends are. All of these lessons is why it was so valuable to attend SUNYIT. Without this experience I would have never done all of the cliche college things (all nighters). I also would have never thought I was capable to do well and become a strong independant woman in the business world. I would have never gotten to be apart of a NCAA sport. Finally, it has been valuable to attend because I now know more about who I am.
Half of my teachers cannot teach.
I wish I had known that they do not offer many online courses.
The social life.
Before attending SUNYIT, I had heard a lot about the computer related or electronic related majors. Ask anyone attending and they know that the computer science or CIS majors take over the school.

I have never had to share a dorm room with anyone because of the suite style dorms. Also, Friday classes are very rare here and most people can easily avoid them their entire college career.
My school is convenient.
SUNYIT is one of the top schools in the Utica Area. The teachers are great and for the education you get, the bill really isn't that bad. The library has everything you could want, computer labs are everywhere and if you need help with anything, the resource center has many qualified people.
A person who can quickly adapt to the environment and can make friends easily. Being that this school is so small, the friends you make are usually the ones you'll be with untill you graduate or transfer.
Most of my classmates are either athletes who live on campus, older non-traditional students, or students from around the Utica area who went to community college and than transferred here.
The on-campus student population is abysmal; by the second week of college I was on a first-name basis with everyone. The surrounding area is completely devoid of anything fun to do in my downtime, and there are barely any jobs available. Additionally, the staff employed by SUNYIT seem to be quite rude, and unhappy. They make rash decisions without researching the subject, or student body's opinion, and it just doesn't seem like they care about you in the least.
