As a commuter, I went to class every day with the intent to put headphones in and get work done, not to make friends. There are a lot of places to hide and get work done comfortably. The atmosphere is super laid back and a lot of the teachers put a lot of time and effort into their teachings and students. The advisement isn't the best when it comes to personality. A lot of impatience and rudeness. However what they lack in kindness they make up for in student resources. And the school has partnerships with other universities leaving a lot of academic, transfer and study abroad opportunities. Most professors are adjuncts from SUNY Cortland, Ithaca, Syracuse, and Cornell. So as far as class difficulty it really just depends on which professor you have and whether or not they care. Decently priced and a small campus that is easy to navigate. A lot of kids from the city.
