Overall, I have found my experience here to be quite pleasant. The academic programs truly excel and test students capabilities. The Psychology program, which is the program I am involved in has very qualified professors. The program also pushes students to think in new perspectives and truly challenge yourself. On campus, the various offices have wonderful employees that are almost always able to provide guidance and answers to questions that are sought after. The students on campus are very warm and welcoming to incoming students so that people don't feel like they regret coming here. My only issues with the college is the food services. The food on campus is mediocre and I feel as though there is a lack in variety.

As a junior attending SUNY Polytechnic Institute I can say I have learned a lot from their college experience whether it be understanding and mastering my major and its requirements or learning to live on my own. I applied here for their Computer Science program which has taught me quite a lot about coding and the technology field and has offered me some of the experience that I will definitely expect to see when I obtain my career job. However, some aspects that this campus lack include diversity amongst students, major options, and on campus events. Overall this college is very education-based and aids in keeping you focused on your goals.
To start off, the food is not that bad, but isn't good. I dislike the idea of having to pay for a meal plan I do not enjoy while applying for housing. I do not often go to the dining hall to eat and it's a waste of money to pay for something I do not often use. Next, there is the housing. The housing is average, but I wish it wasn't so expensive for the amenities we are receiving. Depending on which housing hall you live in, the rooms can be small, hallways narrow, and bathrooms are not as newly updated. Then, there are classes. Classes are a "hit or miss" in my opinion. Some teachers can be amazing while others, not so much. Keep in mind this is a small public college, so there isn't much selection in terms of teachers and lecture times. Overall, the college campus average, the location is not that great if your looking to be in a large city with stores nearby (meaning you will need a car to get anywhere), and the classes, food, and housing need to be improved.
