What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's cool if you're in Newhouse or the Sports Management program. Other than that, I wouldn't necessarily suggest it. There is SO MUCH greek life and unless you are down with paying for friends, you'll feel pretty uncomfortable. Prepare to have kids slack off on group projects because they're hungover, have a frat meeting, or scheduling a sorority fundraiser.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here wouldn't want to be anywhere else. There is always so much going on and to do. It is a very exciting place to be especially on game day. Most people live for the sports teams. The dome is a great place to be. The professors are very intelligent and it's amazing to see what Alumni are accomplishing around the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I went in hopeful about Syracuse but it just wasn't the right fit for me. Many do enjoy their experience but the ones that don't either transfer or tough it out. A big party school with "meh" academics. Party hard and work hard.. occasionally. Greek life is huuuuuge here and hard to avoid. The kids at Newhouse are pretentious, for no reason. Syracuse is in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do but party a lot and go to dartys or the mall. People drink practically every day of the week. Great school to go to if all you want to do is party for four years and waste a lot of tuition money. The city of syracuse sucks too. have fun!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Syracuse is a wonderful school that provides many opportunities for its students. The dorms, while not air-conditioned, bring students together during the winter months, creating a closely-knitted community. These students bleed orange and are proud to attend their school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SU is a great place, attending has been probably the greatest life choice I've ever made. With that being said, it does have its faults. Lots of campus housing does need an upgrade, the food leaves a lot to be desired, and the climate is harsh. Also diversity is something that needs to be better discussed because there is a grave lack and no one seems to care, and that contributes to the unspoken segregation of campus. But the atmosphere is great, there are few things like basketball at the Carrier Dome and it is a work hard play hard environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school for journalism and analytics. The atmosphere is very party heavy, but you aren't pressured to participate in the activities if you do not want. Syracuse is huge into sporting events, especially basketball. There are many great organizations on campus depending on your interests.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Syracuse University has something for everybody. It boasts a wide array of academic programs whose quality range from average to excellent. The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, the School of Architecture, and the S.I Newhouse School of Public Communications are among the finest in the country in their respective fields. Syracuse University's campus is actually quite beautiful and, for the most part, its facilities and academic buildings are nice. The weather can be intimidating, but it's never so bad that you can't manage it. From a social standpoint, the school leaves more to be desired. Clouded by a heavy presence of Greek Life, Syracuse's social scene largely consists of exclusive frat parties. One might look at the student body and sense arrogance and entitlement more than friendliness and welcoming. Still, with over 15,000 undergraduate students, there is a large pool from which you will find a crowd that suits you if you look hard enough.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school has numerous problems from rampant greek life to its obvious high tuitions and lack of financial aid. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people and participate in student life. However theres quite a bit of debilitating inter-college focus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After completing my freshman year at Syracuse University, I was in complete awe. Believe it or not, I had never visited Syracuse University before I moved in last August so I honestly didn't know what to expect. However, I absolutely love it. The professors are great, there is a lot of diversity, there are so many clubs you can join, and just so many things to do on campus. ALthough we are a very big school, it has a small school feel to it because there are so many opportunities for everyone to feel integrated. The academics are great. Some majors more than others give you a lot of freedom when it comes to choosing your classes. Also, there are requirements that make you take classes that are outside of your major. This way you can become a more worldly and well rounded student. Aside from academics, there are also a lot of activities going on on campus. In the Schine Student Center, organizations are usually tabling in order to try and integrate the Syracuse community and get people interested in their organization. If you want to do something there is something for you and if there isn't it's easy to start it! The school pride is also off of the charts! I’ve never seen people so excited to see an orange walking around campus. I worked at The Dome and I’ve attended a lot of games and the energy is amazing. The only negative thing I have to say is that Syracuse, New York is a very poor city. There is not much to do outside of the university if you don’t have a car. Thankfully, the university does an extremely good job at constantly having activities for the students to participate in. I really love my school and I’m glad I made the decision of attending Syracuse University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school with a beautiful campus. I have definitely met a lot of interesting people who have widened my world view. There are more international students than I expected (which is positive) as I enjoy a diverse background. Professors are friendly and helpful as well.
