It has taken me a while to get comfortable on Geneseo's campus as the college lacks in diversity and the undetectable welcoming environment. I like academic challenge of Geneseo, and that is about it! If you are not on a sports team or in a Greek cult, it is difficult to find a circle of friends. It also does not help that Geneseo is very cliquey. I made vows to leave almost every semester, and somehow I am going into my second year. If you can look past the repetitive food in the dining halls and like to be challenged , then Geneseo is the place for you!

SUNY Geneseo is a wonderful university! The other students and campus staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Although courses are rather challenging, you know that you'll come out a better student and individual in the end. Geneseo is a place that is about so much more than just an education but about preparing you for what life after graduation might be like.
I went to SUNY Geneseo for 2 years 2014-2016. Graduated with my Bachelor's Degree. SUNY Geneseo is a beautiful campus with potential for many students that come to learn. It is nicely laid out and the classrooms are not too tight. There are some lecture halls on part of the campus and normal classrooms on other parts of the campus. The price of the classes are fairly decent, but could be a little friendlier. The food at the school is really good, but it costs a bit of money. The library is wonderful with 3 floors. Downstairs and upstairs have designated silent spots for studying and reading. It is a beautiful campus
