Fredonia is a small school. You are WAY more than another number. Everyone's experience is different, but almost everyone I know has made Fredonia into a second home. Walking around campus, you can always find a familiar, smiling face. I have made so many friends and connections and I have accomplished so much. My program is AMAZING and I am so excited to enter the professional field of teaching!

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.
Good campus culture. Most everyone is friendly, and if you're living on campus there's a lot of opportunities that you're given to build community with your fellow students. Overall a nice area that's pretty safe surrounding the university, and the campus looks beautiful in the winter. However, there are some issues that they have in regard to salting the pathways. Sometimes they leave layers of ice and can be hard or just not safe to walk on them. Very good facilities for the arts, sciences, and athletics (recreationally). The art galleries on campus are great, as are the concert halls. The fitness center is modern and clean, and there's a rock wall that's open a few times a week if you want to go climbing with your friends. As well, there's open swim (in the natatorium), and open ice skating for students and community members when the weather is right. They also give a lot of opportunities for career building and mentorship. And all of this is with the price tag of a state school.
