SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry Reviews

I loved the experiences that I had at SUNY-ESF. The students and teachers are both passionate about saving the environment, and there are many options for both hard science and creative classes. The teachers are up to date with current happenings and legislation, and knowledge taught is both detailed and comprehensive. There is also the option to take any Syracuse University classes due to their partnership, which is basically getting private university teaching at public university cost.

This school is incredible, the academics, the campus, the professors, it is all so amazing! This school is rigorous with its freshman, so don't expect to sail though classes easily. After that, the doors are wide open, and with all kinds of natural science going on, you can never be truly bored. Science heavy, but that is how I like it.
the culture of academic rigor is counter productive. ESF's idea or rigor is giving the student's an intense volume of information without context or assistance with conceptualization. the student body is a mixed bag; some people are really cool and nice, but most are standoffish at best. the location is only OK. there's plenty of parties and house shows and a nice art gallery downtown. there are also a lot of cool events that happen at Syracuse University; my favorite was when they brought in classical Indian musicians for a free concert. Fall semester is usually nice, but prepare for six months of winter in the spring.
