SUNY Maritime College Reviews
Suny Maritime is not your regular college. I’m speaking on behalf of being in the regiment of cadets. No one is going to tell you how busy your schedule is going to be, or how balancing regimental stuff and classes is very stressful. If you’re worried about indoc don’t sweat it, it’s tough but the hardest part is standing at attention for hours at a time. You’d think that after indoc you would be just worried about your classes. Not here, you will have formation every morning and must be outside by 7am some mornings you may have “teambuilding” or remedial pt. Every night is taps (inspection) and tuesdays and Thursdays hold your regiment activities from 3-4pm. Just know, if you come here, you will be busy 24/7 and be sleep deprived. Students here only suffer b/c you will make a lot of money when you graduate. Remember, “terrible place to be, great place to be from.”
The campus is amazing and it is a totally different feeling when you are there. Unlike most city colleges, SUNY Maritime allows you to feel like you are right in the city, while still being on your own island and your own private campus. The city is easily accessible and it offers many opportunities for off-campus activities. I have heard by many people that it is a hidden jewel, and I personally have to agree. I would reccomend that anyone who is looking to stay relatively close New York City give this college a chance, because it is truly amazing.
Maritime is HYPER-focused on the maritime industry and if you are not devoted and in love with the maritime industry, consider other schools. The school will preach diversity as much as any other college, but the truth is Maritime is NOT diverse. The school is at least 80% male-dominated and over 70% white. The BEST part of Maritime is the faculty and staff. They are caring and always willing to go above and beyond for students. Fair warning to those interested in the Regiment...do not join the regiment if you are not willing to commit and do what you are told. The regiment will not kill you, but it does get VERY annoying. I have enjoyed my experience at Maritime, but I have come to understand that it is not the place for me. Maritime does not offer enough minors, concentrations or even majors. Be 110% percent sure you want to come to Maritime. At the end of the day, Maritime like any college is what you make of it.
