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.

Just graduated from Binghamton this past Spring, and I loved every minute of my 4 years. Despite the bad weather, this school is everything you could want in a college experience. Bing really is what you make of it, and there truly is something for everyone. Academics are great, and there's for sure a "work hard play hard" type of vibe. People spend lots of time studying, but there are also opportunities to party or go out almost every night of the week. There is for sure a Greek life presence on campus, but nobody cares if you don't join. The downtown area is also growing and becoming very student friendly, with new restaurants and apartment complexes popping up all over. 100 percent would recommend Bing to anyone!
I love it here at Binghamton University. I am only entering my second semester, but there is a plethora of opportunities to grow at Binghamton. There are hundreds of clubs and organizations, where it seems like there is a club for everyone. They even have a cheese club! All my professors in the first semester were very knowledgeable and reasonable with the amount of work given and I felt that especially in the school of management they are driven towards professional development early to increase your chances of landing jobs right out of college.
