Pros: VERY good teachers; I can always get in contact with them- communication is wonderful. They are always there to help you and mentor you. My old advisor was in China when I studied abroad and we just had a lovely little time- I still have coffee with him!
Curriculum choices & campus is diverse- even at the campus stores they have kimchi, just to illustrate how hard they go. *They didn't have the study abroad program I wanted so they facilitated my going through SUNY Brockport's program and helped me every step of the way.
Also- the campus food is surprisingly good!

Cons: A bit pricey, the area surrounding the campus is pretty spread out so not too easily accessible w/o a car, the places to go off campus are pretty non-diverse.

The professors are easily accessible and willing to help their students succeed. There are also several other resources available to support students while they earn their degree. However, living on campus is less than ideal. The food is unhealthy and doesn't taste great, and dorms are expensive. There are kitchens available (at least one) in the dorm buildings though, so if you're willing to cook, it isn't too bad!
The professors genuinely care about you and want you to succeed. The campus is beautiful and downtown is a short walk down the street. The nightlife was my favorite part it is definitely a party school. Food on campus was pretty good! They shortened some dining hall hours which was disappointing. The mall is 45 minutes away either towards Erie or towards Buffalo. Some stores are in town and there are a lot of cute cafes and restaurants. Overall, I loved it and I would go back and do it all over again if I could!
