SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry Reviews
Amazing teachers. Even though it is a smaller school, it is highly respected with many opportunities within the college! Its the perfect place to create your own path for yourself!
My professors were split down the middle, they either did a good job and conveyed their expectations and gave great material to learn with or did terrible and had no resources and no format that caused confusion and uncertainty. There were many office hours open and help from TAs and resources. My advisor was SO helpful through it all and I appreciate her. Professors, regardless of performance, were understanding of all that we had been trough and were nice with grades.
This school has been everything I could have wanted. Everyone shares similar goals to protect the environment, so it's easy to make friends and find something specific you're passionate about. Since it's a smaller school you have the opportunity to get to know your professors and get help in classes, but you also have access to large school facilities because of the connection to Syracuse University.
