I am going to be a transfer junior this upcoming semester and I have nothing but good things to say about this college! I love how helpful the admissions office is as well as the financial aid office. I strongly feel that this school cares about it's students and that each student is being given the best education that they deserve.

SUNY Canton is awesome! Especially for students like me with a learning disability. I can't say enough about the accommodative services. They make sure I get everything I need to succeed. Awesome tutoring center too...#1 in NYS last year! The dorms are ok. They do this stupid thing where they renovate in the middle of the semester. If your wing is up...you may have to move and go into a 3 room. It totally sucks! Don't' know why they can't do this in the summer! It is stressing kids out! The academics and teachers are fantastic. They take time to get to know you. My advisor is awesome too. The food is good when you come to visit...but not too great when you get here. There is a shuttle to walmart...be sure to have a microwave and have snack foods in your room. Canton is really small. It's a cute town but not much to do.
I love the importance SUNY Canton places on its students success and the real world hands-on experience you get in all of the programs. I feel like I am actually being prepared for my future career, not just being taught to a test. However, the campus is in a very inconvenient spot and has some harsh weather conditions. The campus, while small, also is very hilly. If you can get past that, it's the perfect school.
