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.

During my time here at SUNY Canton, the classes and professors are great. There are clubs and activities to get you involved and most of the RA's are nice. The rooms are a bit small considering there are 3 people living in them. Since this college is close to the border of Canada, and a lot of the students are from farther down south, finding friends can be difficult. By the time everyone moves in, they already have their group of friends from back home that they stick with.
The experience is everything! It's a small school so it's easy to meet people and know everyone you come into contact with. Classes are small and teachers are willing to work with you. A lot of academic help is there for you. Big tutoring help.
