The atmosphere is great! The administrators are more like family. The institution is more concerned with you understanding the information in which you are being taught. The classes are small, which makes each class more engaging and personal. Instructors are available during their office hours to assist you if need be. The instructors are SUPER helpful. As long as you put forth effort as a student you will do well at the institution. I recommend anyone going to this university or any others to stay at one institution all four years. They say transferring an Associate's degree is easy, but it's not. Staying at one institution will help the student become molded with the proper mindset of one institution. I enjoy the people and am excited about my future upon graduation from SUNO!
After I recieve my degree I'm not sure what type of opportunities may be presented to me. It's not many opportunities for internships here. I rarely here students speak of getting internships. Since I have been attending school here I have not encountered one job fair or employers recruiting here on campus. We don't have a career center to help us with job placement or services. We are definitely lacking one for the students who attend school here. Their is no alumni network. However, the alumni is not strong.

My overall experience has been a great one. I have encounter some great encouraging professors. I haven't met any classmates because the students are not as friendly and approachable as you would think so in meeting. It's like everyone is for themselves. But, I guess this is because half the percentage of the school commute and they are natives of the city of the school we attend.
