Although it is a very small college, it has amazing benefits! One of the best parts of being a student at SUNY Canton is the one on one attention you will get with the professors and staff. It helps you learn on your own pace, and gives you a chance to grow. Another benefit is that there is a lot of wiggle room for students to lead their own clubs, ideas, and activities. Resources are a little low but the college works every year to provide more for their students as SUNY Canton grows.

Really great school! The campus is a nice size and beautifully laid out. Admissions staff are super friendly and definitely make a great first impression. If you have even the slightest interest in this school you should definitely go check it out!
SUNY Canton has been a great school for me enroll in order to return to school to finish my degree. After receiving an associate's degree and then getting married and starting a family, I was unable to continue my education at the time in life. Canton was an excellent decision to apply to to continue towards my bachelors degree online. Being able to take the rest of my classes online has allowed me to pursue my goal.
