SUNY Cortland Reviews
In my personal experience, I felt like I was forced out of a major I started out indie to the environment of the class room and the students. Professors are decent, you get the good and the bad like everywhere else in any major. There isn't much to do if you aren't into physical activities and sports or drinking on the weekends. My current major has a very small department which is good because you get to know your professors but also can effect you if you do poorly in one course because you'll most likely have that professor for multiple courses.
The staff is caring and understanding, and I have never had a negative experience with the institution. I have attended two other universities, and SUNY Cortland is by far the best one. I'm proud to be a Red Dragon!
The school has some really great professors, and there is a HUGE emphasis on sports and fitness (and education majors)! The one down fall I will say is their parking is the worst I have seen. You pay for a parking pass and still have to walk a mile (if not more) to get to class. The school can feel cliquey if you transfer in and it may be hard to find friends, but those that have been here since freshman year don't really have trouble. Cortland academics are no joke, and you cant just skim by and expect to get good grades. The social life is thriving here at Cortland whether its clubs, campus activities, or the bar scene. Also, be prepared for some brutal winters!
