SUNY Fredonia Reviews
I like Fredonia for the most part, I live off-campus, and I think the student life seems rather dull, outside looking in. However, the academics are decent and it's a good school. I feel like some facilities could be improved, like Thompson Hall. I believe the latter houses the History, Psychology, and Teaching departments, but the building itself is rather dreary. They recently repainted the walls which is nice! The diversity is also very good, as an LGBT student, it's very accepting here and I appreciate it a lot. As for race and socioeconomic backgrounds, it's diverse in those aspects as well! I really like this school, but as a local, I can tell you that Fredonia itself is a pretty boring town, however I've noticed that many students from NYC appreciate that.
It is a small community, parties almost every weekend and the teachers for criminal justice and chemistry are really nice! There was one teacher for a performing arts general education credit I took my first semester and because his class was not the first priority he threatened my stay here at Fredonia. I do not recommend taking his class! I am a double major and I was taking about seven classes my first semester and usually an A, B student. The advisors here do not help. If they do not know something they do not try and find out for you. The diversity this year is really good! The events held here are also really fun, you learn a lot from them while still having tons of fun.
I was initially recruited to play softball there when I was just a freshman. I wasn't at all interested because I thought I was better than a Division III player. But after I realized that I wasn't going pro for softball (which took a while to realize), I decided to look into SUNY Fredonia. I always wanted to become a math teacher and when I found out Fredonia had one of the best mathematics program in New York, I stayed in contact with the coach and immediately visited the campus. I did an overnight stay there and I immediately wanted to go there. I have applied there and was accepted within a few weeks!
