Taking online classes used to be something that I only planned on experiencing on the winter and summer semesters. While those experiences were great, I felt as though I retained the knowledge, I've noticed that some professors rely more on textbook learning rather than actual lecture teaching on online classes. Although, this was different Spring semester of 2020, when COVID-19 forced us all to go online. The lectures were both live and uploaded for us to rewatch at any time, and SO many office hours and tutors were available!

Undeniably the best SUNY. I transferred from another top state school in New York and was blown away by the facilities, professors, and students. This school is amazing and is consistently getting better every year. The alumni pride is strong, and with that comes donations. These donations will continue to fund top tier facilities and professors. This school tops most tier 1 private schools (excluding the ivies obviously). You will get the best education here, especially for the amount of money you’ll end up spending!
I love Binghamton University and have enjoyed my time here greatly! So much so that I'm coming back again for grad school in the fall. Binghamton university has a large campus site that hosts a grand variety of classes & degrees, students & faculty, and extracurricular and leisure activities. There are also plenty of amazing places to grab a bite an hang out with some friends. And the amount of private study rooms they have and places for you to be able to spread your notes out in peace is phenomenal. Even the ability to get around campus is made easy by their campus shuttle service that not only takes them within walking distance to every area on campus, but also out to the vestal parkway and to downtown Binghamton which hosts a wide variety of shops, restaurants & bars, and entertainment places. I truly cannot wait to return this fall and relax in the University Union with some Dunkin and my notes.
