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.
Review SUNY Canton
SUNY Canton has been one of the best experiences of my life. The classes, even in the first year, are hands-on which helps the students after graduation in getting a job. The professors are, for the most part, very good, and help you with just about everything they can. Being one of few colleges with technology degrees in specific areas really sets those students out from others when applying for internships as well.
My courses thus far have been relatively simple and engaging however my professors seemed to vary. I had two professors who got the point across and kept the entire class focused. Yet, two of my other professors seemed to be a little absent minded. They didn't answer questions, didn't respond to emails, didn't give syllabi, and just didn't seem to care whether we learned anything or not. Despite them, I still feel passionately for my school and the courses here. I noticed a Comic Book Literature class which sounds really interesting. The variety of courses is huge.
