I give the school itself an overall 3 stars. The school does its best to drive inclusiveness and diversity but however lacks dramatically in that area. The dorms are currently on renovation but students in the non-renovated dorms are not living as comfortable as the other students who are in those renovated dorms yet are still stuck to pay the same cost. The food in the major dining halls - Clinton and Algonquin needs improvement big time. Besides all that this is a very very beautiful campus and there's a lot to see and always something to do or go!
Review SUNY Plattsburgh
My overall experience at school so far has been awesome. I was a little worried coming in as a transfer but everyone has been super welcoming! One of my favorite experiences was when my schools dinning hall put on Hawaiian night. We had a smoothie bar, shrimp, ousters, lobster, fresh fruit, a DJ that asked trivia questions, we got prizes, and also had a hula hoop competition. It was a fun way to jazz things up and mix up the norm. What makes my school unique is the diversity of students. We have exchange students from all over the world! You get to experience so many different cultures. I would choose this school again if I could because of how great it is. They offer so many different things such as free tutoring, clubs, and much more.
To me I enjoyed my experience at Plattsburgh. I loved the surroundings and a lot of the people there are really nice. I also enjoyed the fact that the campus was pretty diverse. This year Plattsburghs diversity rate went up about 13% if I'm not mistaken. Other then that the education I got was really good. Some professors were really hard to learn from and some professors taught me things I would never forget in life. Plattsburgh is pretty amazing!
