SUNY Polytechnic Institute Reviews

The campus for SUNY Polytechnic is very open and clean with a great amount of space being available. Most professors for the computer science department are great and have many years of experience. The dorms are usually very clean and they have staff that go around on a routine to provide light maintenance. But, the total level of cleanliness depends completely on you and your suite mates. The location of the campus could put a damper on some people because to go anywhere your best bet to have a car since you are surrounded completely by thruways. But they tend to always have something being done on campus to help with either boredom or any problems that students might be going thru. There also are a good of clubs and they have the option of always being able to start your own club.

If you are the introverted type, this school is definitely for you. This is not the typical college. Most of the students are strictly there to learn and go to class. On their off time they usually stay indoors or by themselves. As a result, the campus can seem vacant and lonely at times. There is not much of a party scene at this school. Although, it is easy to find a party now and then at the neighboring colleges. On the other hand, SUNY Poly gives their students a rewarding education. They have impressive technology that allows students to have hands on experience in their major. In addition, the class sizes are very small. Classes typically have around twenty to thirty students in them. Having a small class allows for professors to give each student the help that they need to be successful in class. Overall, SUNY Poly is a great school where any student can feel comfortable and become successful.
SUNY Polytechnic Institute is a college that focuses a lot on education rather than school activities for students to enjoy. It is a technology based school, Computer Science is a common major on campus along with Accounting, Civil Engineering. Classes can be rigorous depending on what major you take and the professors. If you require help, there are tutoring sessions available. Also go to your professor and ask for direct help. It is very important to show that you are interested in your grade especially if you are not passing. There are not a lot of activities to do on campus due to their strict policies and Greek life was banned due to hazing. There is not a wide variety of clubs or activities on campus. The teams on campus consist of basketball, soccer, and a few others. The cafeteria food is not all that great. As a freshman in the dorms, the RAs keep a close eye on you but after that year they are more lenient.
