this school is for popular kids who want to continue high school without the unpopular kids, rules, and parents, and with way more partying. the academics are definitely very high quality, but don't go here unless you're interested in all of your conversations being about 'what happened last night'
Syracuse students and alumni bleed Orange! Even the surrounding area of townspeople love the University. It is just the right size - large enough to meet new people and the campus is beautiful, small enough to know your professors and classmates. Lots of majors to choose from. On campus life is wonderful, the freshman dorms are nice, and the food is good cooked served by their own dining employees plus lots of pop up cafes. Awesome DI sports too! Everyone gets involved to cheer them on!
I have always wanted to go to Syracuse. Whilst it is an expense and sometimes does not live up to it's cost, it's an amazing school. As a freshman and speaking on my college experience so far, it's really a hidden gem that will give you the quintessential college experience! My college experience has been great academically and socially and at the end of it all you're going to get in what you put out.

I have learned so much as a person and about my talent as a Musical Theatre major.
They are outgoing, intelligent people who are focused on what they want to do in their life and are eagerly preparing for the outside world after we all graduate.
There is a reason students stick out the long, frigid winters and daily snowstorms at Syracuse -- it's the sense of community and infinite niches available at the university.
Definitely embracing our diversity. There are so many different cultures that inhabit SU's campus, but we students sometimes refuse to infuse ourselves in with different groups & learn more about ourselves from other people.
What is certainly unique about Syracuse University is the weather. Learning how to walk downhill in snow or thin ice is what makes my weekly routine interesting. But, the weather is just one part of the reason I chose Syracuse as my future alma mater. I considered Iowa State, Penn State and Rutgers. I got accepted to all. The reason I am in Syracuse University is because it allowed me to fulfill my future plans of becoming a physicist and a painter. Out of those universities I mentioned Syracuse allows me to combine those two majors.
someone who doesnt like to drink, is antisocial, doesnt like college sports.
Before I matriculated to Syracuse I wish I would have known the extent of how important time management is. At a university like SU , you must have superb time management skills, if your the social/outgoing type, because there is something to always keep you busy. This is most important your first year because that when you will be establishing yourself. Be sure that what ever school you choose, that you go there with the intent to stay focused, while enjoying yourself. Come to SU, learn, live, and trust that it will help you in return. YEAH SU!!!!
Someone who would like to have international experience (study abroad), make friends from all around the world, and ones that would like greek life.
The best thing about my school is the fact that we have so many resources and connections in the real world, that will help with job placement. It is an amazing thing to have a degree from SU on your resume, because most likely you will end up finding an alumni who will be more than willing to help to find you a job.

Syracuse is incredibly cold.
When anyone asks about my experience here at Syracuse University, I tell them that I love my school because everyday I see new people and new opporitunities. There is never a dull day as I am faced with campus protests, activities and guest speakers. There are a lot for resources available as the need to succeed is very important here. There is fair share of social activies and it is very "friend-friendly". The school spirit is high, the chancellor is commited and who could ask for a better campus.
I love my school! The opportunity to study at a great school has been such a privilege and I'm thankful to my family for making it happen. I'm on the sailing team, a member of Syracuse University Ambulance and will be taking advantage of the study abroad program starting this summer.
I trust the professors and feel they know what they are doing. Almost all my teacher's know my name and I can get to know personally.
I feel fully confident I will graduate knowing how to do my profession and will not be nervous to enter the field.
Syracuse is also great when it comes to taking care of their students. I have gotten so much help and direction here from my advisor and the career services center. Whenever I feel lost i trust the school to help me out. They also are VERY helpful when it comes to finding internships, jobs, and networking, which is so important.
basketball is the biggest sport on campus with lax following. football games are fun even though we cant win a game. club sports are a big thing, especially hockey, skiing, rugby, and soccer. athletic events are huge and absolutely should be attended. 2am on a tuesday, you are most likely studying or if its a holiday that day/the next day or an event you are partying. frats and sororities are big but not the biggest thing.
Syracuse, NY is the coldest college city to ever go to.
Syracuse University is full of daddy's little girls and momma's boys that have everything given to them.
You can't go to Syracuse University unless you have a million dollars.
Syracuse University is basketball, football and nothing else.
not really. alot of people are on scholarships and have an average amount of money, and only the frat and sororities are like that.
Some would say that the students are very social life oriented and all about partying but that is not entirely true. Students like to enjoy themselves but just as much as any other college student at any school. We have a good balance of fun and rigorous academic life. I am never bored either way.
Some dorms are completly up to date, some are not. But all the dorms are okay. The dining halls are either a hit or a miss.
Syracuse University has great abroad programs and its Maxwell School and Newhouse are nationally ranked. It is a diverse school that gives students a lot of opportunities to succeed. Internships, flexible classes and many clubs and organizations make up the Syracuse Community!
