What is your overall opinion of this school?

Syracuse University is a beautiful campus with some of the best facilities I have ever seen or known. The teachers in the business school are extremely open, friendly, and drive you to be your best. I can't speak about the teachers in other parts of the school, but I can say that if a business school is what you are looking for, the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse is the best of the best. When it comes to culture and life on campus, the food isn't terrible but can get a bit predictable, Greek Life is pretty prevalent and overwhelming, if you want to be a part of a bigger community but don't know what you feel towards social greek life, I highly recommend you join a professional fraternity that gives you a nice balance of work and friends. Dorm life is not as bad as people make it to be, the Freshman dorms are further from the center of campus but is a manageable walk. If you really don't like the dining hall food, Marshall Street is your go-to for foods like Chipotle, Sushi, Bubble Tea, and Starbucks. The school does have downsides as well. Syracuse University is not as diverse as it claims to be. It preaches of diversity, when for the most part, it is very segregated because students don't take action to expand beyond their comfort zone. Additionally, since Syracuse is a private school, the demographics is further limited due to the price of the school. Overall, the academics is great, the people are mediocre, the food is okay, and the activities is great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I hated it from the first second and decided to transfer! Literally, the first day of classes 2 alumni came into my dorm during a fire drill and robbed everything of value in my room. The weather is awful and the town is SUPER dangerous and full of drug addicts and a very low socio-economic environment. Take one step off campus and you will be terrified! I was an A student and memorized some things for a Spanish test and got a 96! The teacher FAILED me because she said you cannot memorize something that someone helps you with. WHAT? I pulled something from my memory and it did not seem like my words so I got an F! The teacher said they could have expelled me! There are drugs everywhere and people drinking to puke all over the place. HATED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PLACE! So so so happy I am not going to be there sophomore year!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Syracuse is a town in itself. Here, you can leave your high school life behind and branch out in ways you never would expect yourself to. I left a small town where I went to pre-k through high school with the same kids and everyone knew everyone. When I came to Syracuse I was definitely nervous but it was the right choice. The dorms are beautiful. The bathrooms on each floor are singles; shower toilet and sink. The food is doable.. obviously not like a home cooked meal but I don't find myself ordering food every night. The coursework is TOUGH but the professors here bend over backwards to assure you're getting the best education possible despite the large class size. I was looking for a school with both an academic and social scene. Here I can find friends to study with and go to parties with. This school does not pressure anyone into drinking. If you don't go out you're bond to find friends to stay in with and vice versa. This school really allows me to expand out of my comfort zone and has offered me so many amazing opportunities. Syracuse is a great choice for all different types of people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Syracuse University's biggest strength is providing opportunities for students to get involved and pursue their interests outside of the classroom, which ultimately ends up being more important on a resume. There are many different groups of students on campus as there are many high-quality academic programs on campus between Newhouse, Bandier, Falk, and VPA. I think the people at Syracuse are A1 but from my experience, you have to actively seek out intellectual conversation. The University does a great job of connecting you to alumni and work opportunities to get a job. Overall, you have the opportunity to get a great job if you put the effort in, but don't expect an intellectual or academically engaging environment.

I am a bit older then a lot of the student at Syracuse University. I appreciate the campus and the professors are wonderful. I enjoy the classes and the work that has to be done. The campus is beautiful and there needs to be a bit more parking for off campus students. well better parking . Professors are great. The shops around are awesome. Sporting events are big for SU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Syracuse is a good school. The campus is safe and well maintained. Professors are engaging and are always willing to provide extra help to those who ask. While I don't find the university housing appealing, there are private apartment complexes extremely close to campus, with bus stops right outside.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Syracuse University is a highly reputable school for academics as well as athletics. It provides opportunities for all types of students and does not discriminate against anyone. I think the cost of tuition is a little much, but I appreciate the nice facilities that the University provides to its students and faculty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Syracuse University offers a unique college experience. The school spirit, beautiful academic buildings, top notch academic programs, diverse extracurricular opportunities, and strong alumni connections, make Syracuse one of a kind. I truly love going to this school, because I feel that Syracuse has provided me so many outlets to improve as a student, and just as a person. There is so much that this school offers, but it’s in your hands to go seek it out. At the Schine student center and in every academic building, walls are covered with posters enticing students to get involved with extracurricular clubs, service activities, and greek organizations. Our campus constantly has famous guest speakers come give speeches, lectures, or even TedxTalk’s. Our student body loves to have fun. The entire campus is lit up for every single game day. Everyone makes their way over to the Dome, dressed head to toe in orange. There’s a very big live music scene on campus. There’s a club called University Union that organizes our two biggest events: Juice Jam and Mayfest. They’re always such a blast. The school gets top music artists to perform, and the concert tickets are decently cheap. My favorite times with my friends has been going to these concerts. Overall, Syracuse University is an amazing college, and I highly suggest checking it out if you’re thinking about applying. The worst thing about attending school here is the snow, but the month or two at the beginning and end of each year make coming here worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has good student life. The students here hold others accountable for their actions. The meal plan could be adjusted, but still works well. The campus definitely has orange pride. The teachers are kind, and you can tell they care about the work and teaching they do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school, very cold, and is a party school but focuses a lot on academics also. If you’re a biology/chemistry/biochemistry major or pre med I suggest living in a learning community since you all take the same classes your first year so you have many people to help you with assignments and to study with.
