Brockport has been an increasingly worse experience over my time here. This is mostly attributed to how poor administration is at being able to keep good professors. The turnover is unprecedented for my department. You find a professor you like- chances are they won't be there next year. They are so short staffed that they are not offering courses that are a part of my REQUIRED degree plan. When are they going to be offered again? Nobody knows! Looking for an internship while you're in school? Good luck. They only companies that recruit from Brockport seem to be looking for health care workers. Anything else and you're screwed. I went to Brockport for the same reason most other people do, for convenience and price. But if I had known better when I was applying for colleges, I would have applied to private schools and a bunch of scholarships instead. I could have been paying slightly more to get a signifcantly better education elsewhere.

I took all courses online. Professors communicate well through the blackboard platform for lessons and use a variety of online tools to teach with and use as resources. My diversity course professor required us to put ourselves in a situation that was out of our culture "comfort zone" (while still remaining safe) and then write about our experience. Excellent way to learn!
SUNY College at Brockport is the place to be! There are many resources that the school provides to their students to succeed academically and professionally.
