SUNY Plattsburgh Reviews
The atmosphere and vibe on campus is very welcoming and friendly. Classes are great and so are the professors. Greek life is pretty common on campus but not stressed or forced on anyone. The dorms on campus (except whiteface!) are slightly above average and off-campus housing as well. The party scene is great, even when it gets cold (which it really does). Campus food is what you can expect for college). Diversity on campus is pretty good but practically non-existent off-campus. Fair warning: There have been incidents of racism and discrimination. However, I just finished my first year here and can say that I look forward to the next three!
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.
It is a great school! Small classes with more one on one help and amazing professors. Through my experiences at Plattsburgh I have met many people and joined amazing organizations. Going to college I was very nervous and not sure how much I would enjoy it, until I got there and realized how much even being away felt like home. My professors always have office hours and times I can get one on one help if needed.
