    So far I like Cazenovia College, it's a safe space it's small, quiet and a good place to grow. I just completed my freshman year and I'm anxious to return! The activities we get to indulge in are great. Everything from carnivals, movie trips, and even karaoke nights. Cazenovia has a lot of potential and good professors, I look forward to graduating.

    It's a smaller school with many amazing professors. Class sizes are kept rather small which means that you aren't just a number to the professors. And since it's a smaller campus it also feels rather safe. The help that professors give is great, they are always available and willing to take the extra time to make sure you understand the class or the assignments. Sometimes during the winter, there isn't much to do in the town but the campus programs always try to make sure there is something for the students to do together. The campus staff also do an amazing job at keeping the school maintained. Even if it just snowed and there's lots of ice, they are right on it making sure that everyone's safe when they are running to class. Overall, Caz College is a great place to commute to.
    Cazenovia College is the perfect college for you, if you love a small and homey atmosphere! At Cazenovia College you are more than just a number! Professors work closely with students to ensure their succession. No one wants to see you fail here!
