Fredonia isn't perfect but if you're looking for a place where you can have many new experiences, meet new people that you never thought you'd meet, and make friendships that will last a lifetime, then Fredonia is the place to be. Fredonians are some of the most open-minded and accepting people out there. The professors truly care about your success as a student as long as you show an interest. If you are unsure about Fredonia at first, give it a chance! It really does grow on you and trust me you will not want to leave at the end of 4 years!
Review SUNY Fredonia
So far, my experience at Fredonia has been fantastic! I attend the music department right now and I can say I've definitely made the right choice coming here. It is perfect for music majors looking for a good deal on a college. The food they serve is delicious and the community is nice. The teachers and faculty are great and interactive. You can easily com to them for help. The dorms are nice and facilitated. Overall my experience has been great so far and I can't wait to see what my future experience here will bring.
SUNY Fredonia is a standard college and far more affordable than non-SUNY schools. The area boasts a lot of great local restaurants and bars which are loads of fun on weekends. As for academics, Fredonia is mostly known for its music and education departments. The food generally isn't awful but it does get a bit repetitive. There are a variety of housing options, from standard dorms to on-campus apartments. Most students move off campus after their sophomore year which has its merits, but there are plenty of independent living options if living on campus seems more convenient. It isn't difficult to get involved with student groups or clubs. There is something for almost every academic or casual interest. With your own efforts, Fredonia can make your college experience a memorable one.
