What's unique about your campus?

Whenever I need help with something, help is always provided for me.

Marissa

The best thing about Syracuse University is the diverse campus. There are so many people who come to Syracuse from all over the country, even from other countries besides this one. Being exposed to diversity helps me to realize how vast our world is. I grew up in a small town and was not exposed to different opinions or backgrounds. I believe that the diversity of Syracuse University makes me want to explore different places and review different viewpoints. This has increased my thirst for knowledge, which develops my education.

For me, the best thing about Syracuse University would be the educational opportunity it provides me. Given my own special circumstances, I do not feel that I would be where I am today if it wasn't for all that Syracuse University has provided me--in terms of financial aid, cultural support, etc. I look at the other things offered, such as the extracurricular activities and social events as added bonuses in my college experience.

The best thing about my school is the well developed field of studies that my school provides for me. I feel as though I am well exposed to all fields and aspects of architectural studies that I will need to be aware of, in order to become a successful architect. While I am on this campus, my focus is to pursue my field of study and to absorb all that I can while I'm here. I have been presented with a remarkable opportunity. My school provides me with the knowledge, that I would never find at another architecture school.

I must say the various ways of getting assistance on a specific course you are taking here. The professors have office hours, there are one on one tutoring, Academic Excellence Workshop, TA's have offic hours, and there are "clinics" in that particular subject, for example, Math Clinic for all math courses.

Syracuse University is an academically rigorous institute which offers its students numerous opportunities and experiences.

The curriculum requires students to have internships and cummunity service requirements to build their resume and make connections so that was one this I like about my university because you would not have to worry to much about building a resume. They prepare you on the way so that students dont have to worry later.
