I transferred from SUNY Geneseo to SUNY College at Oneonta and I feel much more fulfilled here, at Oneonta. The faculty and staff are helpful and welcoming. I have not experienced one truly bad professor. The buildings are (mostly) clean and well-kept. Our library is a phenomenal library, with a great silent floor as well as multiple working computer labs. If there are no computers in the library, there is almost always somewhere else that a computer can be found. The bus service is wonderful with the buses running every 15 minutes during the day, and every half an hour almost all night and it is great that students' ID cards function as bus passes.
Review SUNY College at Oneonta
I absolutely LOVE Oneonta. There is always something to do on the weekends, even if you're not involved in anything. There are free buses to Cooperstown, stores and town. The campus is super homey and its the perfect size. Freshman dorms are BEAUTIFUL and everyone is so friendly. Most people are from LI!
SUNY Oneonta really isn't a good school. Freshman dorms are nice but after that they're disgusting. Food is horrible. (although they do try to accomodate people with dietary restrictions) It was a nightmare trying to get classes I wanted, the first day I could register everything was filled. The students are extremely cliquey and everyone only cares about their small friend circle and Greek life and when the next party is. Teachers aren't the best, one of my professors was clearly on drugs most of the time. Overall it was a terrible experience for me and I transferred after a year.
