So far my experience hasn't been so wonderful. Registering for classes has been a bit of a nightmare because the registrar staff don't seem to know anything about classes that will transfer, and they push you really hard toward getting one of their 2-year degrees, even if they have absolutely nothing to do with where you plan on going or what you plan majoring in later.
The teachers I've had, however, have been great. Friendly, helpful, achievable (but still challenging) work load for their classes.
I'd recommend the school if you're trying to get some general education courses done, or if you're just interested in taking a class or two. But if you plan on transferring after a few semesters, be extra cautious. Have an idea of what you need and don't be afraid to push back when setting up classes. I think it's in their job requirement to get as many people to sign up for useless classes...
happy studying, everyone!
The students and teachers are great! Individuality is widely accepted and everyone is so nice and willing to help. It's a small campus, which I love, so it's easy to find everything and make new friends because it's common to have the same people in most of your classes. The only negative I can think of is soon after hiring a new school president everyone seems to have billing problems where the school is claiming all of a sudden we owe more money! My last 2 semesters I have had this problem when during my first year I had none. I'm really upset about it! Especially because even if you try to fight it, nothing is done. But I still consider this school very good reguardless.
The professors at SUNY Adirondack are wonderful, but there are definitely ones to stay away from. I check RMP before I register for classes, which has been beneficial. While I enjoy the academics, I cannot give this school five stars. Those who work in departments other than education are not the most delightful. I have met some polite people in these departments, but overall my mood usually declines.

There were also issues with my degree requirements. SUNY had changed the specific requirements, without letting me know, and my plan had to be altered. I found this very unprofessional since I was not once contacted about this. I found out this information myself. Other than this, and one other credit issue minor compared to the first one, SUNY Adirondack provided me a great start. I have learned many invaluable things, both inside and outside the classroom, about the world and myself. I will be forever grateful for all I have learned, and I will definitely miss being a student here.
