Overall, the students at Binghamton have a passion for what they study and in turn this creates an atmosphere that encourages creative thinking and collaborative learning. Go bearcats!
Binghamton University had proven to be a great choice of Universities for my son. He was very hesitant at first because he wanted to go to a private school which focused on film as he wants to be a film maker. He has been so pleasantly surprised! His cinematic studies courses have been amazing and his teachers have helped him to become a more well rounded and engaged student. He has met very talented students form the theater department who have acted in his films and amazing musicians who actually composed the score for his first project! There are so many opportunities at Binghamton University that my son never even knew existed for a film buff and film major. He cant wait to go back next semester to work on his first screen play!
