Cazenovia College Reviews
Rating 3.27 out of 5 346 reviews
I love the campus. The workers keep it very clean and beautiful. Most people are nice here including the staff.
Cazenovia College was my top choice. I was so excited to go there. I am a student with a physical disability who uses a power wheelchair. The campus is very old but pretty. I thought I could deal with the older buildings. In my first year there I ran into a ton of barriers. There was a lot of discrimination and ableism. I didn't make any friends. It is very cliquey. I basically forced myself to go. The administration says they want to make changes but they never do and they don't listen to their students. Honestly, it's sad because the college has great potential but there's not a lot of action.
It’s a very small school, with lots of attention falling on the students. Depending on your major, the workload is fairly light with professors who care in each department - as far as I have seen. It’s easy to make connections with people similar to you.
At first I was worried about Caz because of the racial demographic and the other bad Niche reviews I've read. When I was introduced to the staff and given a tour I knew it was the right fit for me. Everyone is so nice it seems like it is out of a movie and the staff make a effort to get to know you. The classes are small so it is easy to build a relationship. Although it is a small area and discrimination is bound to cross paths, Caz makes up for that with their students looking for change and action. I had only eaten there twice because I was accepted, but the food was really good and better than most schools. The area is charming with lively small businesses and a beautiful lake a couple of blocks from the campus. Caz also offers great resources for free that a University would only offer for your first born child. They have tutoring, in school businesses, clubs, activities everyday, small but close minority communities and open class resources. Everyone should give Caz a shot
This college should really be ashamed of itself! administrators treat the students who do not fit the "mold" like dirt. I am shocked that they were rated a B+ in diversity when the school is primarily white. To the prospective PT students- BEWARE! they will treat you like you don't exist. I was PT there and had a parking permit and they told me not to part in student parking because their students were coming back that day? they indicated that paperwork was to be submitted but according to all the other PT students emails were not being sent from the school and they just expected us to know what needed to be turned in. The VA rep was okay and had minimal knowledge on how to navigate any GI benefits. Thankfully the VA made it easy. If you are looking to just get a degree, do not go to Cazenovia College. I would not give them your money. They host a policy academy and last year they forced the police academy to take down their blue lined flag. Just not a welcoming environment at all.
Cazenovia College has been super substantial for me! It’s super small so it’s great for connecting with the community and classmates/professors. This school has also offered me countless of opportunities to further myself.
I feel like Caz is a great school if you like a small town feel and helpful professors. I wanted to study fashion and design, but didnt want to have to live like 5 hours from home in NYC. I would love to do an intership off campus and professors are really helpful with that. Dorms are pretty nice and res life staff is helpful. Food is not great on campus, but lots of good spots in town if you get tired of the dining hall. Highlight is definitely helpful, experienced, and dedicated professors!
Cazenovia is a small college that is very passionate on inclusivity. With their small class sizes; has made me a more confident professional.
So far the presence of college is very welcoming and all of the upperclassmen are very reassuring in helping you get settled in and feel more comfortable.
Online learning is hard as it is and the professors try to make online learning fun and exciting. They hope with covid that they can stay in person throughout the school year because it is easier for students to learn and gain experience.
Not a good school. They pay their Professors very little salaries with almost no benefits. The faculty complain openly about their poor salaries and the fact that they receive no raises in years. Because of this the professors are burned out and don't feel their labor is valued. They show racist tendencies. They only hire white professors and mistreat their only Black Professor. The school administration emboldens students to be disrespectful and mannerless. I can't attend school here.
NA. My courses were all taken on campus. No online learning. I am so concerned about their diversity of courses. Most of the courses here are white-based. There are no non white professors and classes. Although there are so e black students, there are no black Professors. And the students are so disrespectful to the only black Professor they recently hired. The students are so spoiled and have no manners or show any responsibility with the their classwork. They don't like coming to class and they give all sorts of excuses to get away from class. Yet, they expect to pass the class. How can you expect to pass an on campus class with attending classes?
This College is a racist institution. They do not have a diversified faculty population. All professors are white over here. Those of us students of color have no role models to look up to. They just hired a Black Professor and the students and other professors treat her badly and disrespect her in class. I was taking her class this semester and it was so sad to see how many students in the class openly disrespected her and refused to obey her class rules. It was terrible to see. From my experience here, the Professors allow the students to have their way because it's a small college So there are no firm rules for the students. I love this Black Professor who is the only black Professor in the whole college. She is so nice and professional and very intelligent and firm in her rules . But the students are openly disrespectful to her in the classroom and in other classes and that is so not okay. Don't come here. Im transferring out. They teach No manners or responsibility here.
i havent seen any new reviews and i wanna help anyone considering this school. i loved caz and i hated caz. its such a love hate relationship. firstly the food isnt horrible but as a hispanic student from nyc, its not good at all. undercooked, cold sometimes, and just not a whole lot happeneing. there is stir fry thankfully and better options after hours but dinner time and before are not it. if youre used to mediocre food, this is the dining hall for you. but its not all bad! ive met amazing people that i love w all my heart and professors that really care. not all give this impresion but a good majority of the staff cares. however im planning on transfering. the town youre in is so small. so damn small. i dont have a car so it makes thing 10x harder. there are good optioons off campus within the town to eat like caz pizza and thai and the greek place. thats pretty much it lol. also, we lack HEAVY on the classes we offer. no non-white perspective classes. ill make another review
i took a break fall semester 2020 bc of covid but transition spring semester 2020 to online was rough. so many of my teachers were understanding and im so greatful for them. shoutout to livermore, dinero, ezra, roxy! definetly recommend classes w them. i heard some profs are tough this semester but have heard others arent as hard this semester.
Please do not go to this school, food is inedible, very few decent teachers, horrible living conditions, no refunds for COVID-19 last semester, will charge you for every single thing you do. Will take every single dollar you have, and if you can't pay they will kick you out with no issue.RA's are so bored they try to get everyone in trouble and call police often over small things. AVOID THIS SCHOOL AT ALL COSTS
Teachers do not know how to use online tools, classes are often full and you can't get them. They make you pay FULL TUITON for online class and they are even worse than the ones in person. horrible.
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.
This school is not for you if you enjoy having a social life. There is absolutely NOTHING to do on the weekends. The food is seriously terrible to the point where I stopped going to the dining hall. The only good things were the types of classes they offered for my major. I am a freshman and I was lucky enough to transfer after just one semester at Caz. If you want a real college experience, you will not find it here.
I honestly love my campus, it’s right out of a small town picture book. The lake is down the road if you want to be by water, the houses are gorgeous if you want to take a walk in the morning and ogle the house designs, and my favorite are the nature trails to hike on if you’re feeling adventurous. Since it’s a small college you really get to know your community, I made great friends once I got out of my shell and everyone is very understanding. I love how I was able to try new things and find clubs that I really know that I belong to.
