There are so many opportunities at this college to get involved! So many clubs, activities, research opportunities, etc. I have been inspired by great professors to reach my academic potential and to step out of my comfort zone. Plattsburgh is also a beautiful location. 1 hour from Burlington Vermont, 1 hour from the Adirondack high peak region, and 1 hour from Montreal, and 10 minutes from the beach! Plattsburgh has lots of hiking trails on campus, a river, and a bike path on campus. Also, the dining halls are great. There is an organic Dining hall with a killer salad bar. There are plenty of options all around campus even for people who are vegan or gluten free.

SUNY Plattsburgh is a very diverse campus. There are a wide range of different activities and clubs which makes the weekends and late nights very fun! There is always a learning center to get extra help if you need it. The campus is very biased though. Every teacher seems to put his or her views into the class. They are very opinionated and unnecessarily biased. Some of these professors seem to not care about their job at all and essentially just show up to get paid- this is especially true with gen-Ed classes. Some faculty spend almost no time in their offices and finding a scheduled time to meet with them seems almost impossible sometimes.
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!
