Syracuse University Reviews
My first year at Syracuse was amazing! Being an engineering student I was afraid that I wouldn't have time for anything else but studying. But I learned to manage my team and balance volunteering, working off campus, Greek life and a club sport with my major. Teachers are always there to help you, and so are your peers, which is what makes Syracuse so great! Plus you can get involved in so many different things you've never tried before, and meet all kinds of new people.
Syracuse University is its own entity when it comes to college life. Although it may not seem you aren't far from home physically, but Marshall street and just the general stores around you make it so you feel independent enough. I'm definitely not a party person, but there are a plethora of events happening around campus and you won't have to travel far to get to them. If you're worried about being left out, there are tons of organizations in Syracuse and if there are over 25,000 students on campus, there is a place for everyone. As far as education goes, as a computer engineering major, it is a pretty decent program. The professors articulate their office hours every so often to remind the students that they are there to help you excel in your academics. However, I'd like to see more on communication and flexibility to problem solving in lectures rather than the lessons being straight out of a textbook.
The Syracuse vision matches my own; preparing leaders for participation in a changing global society is extremely appealing. I aspire to be an agent of change in this world, and desire my undergraduate institution to support me in this endeavor. I value the opportunity to study abroad, as well as the emphasis of being involved in a culture of innovation and discovery. The most exciting connection between Syracuse and myself is that student/faculty collaboration, especially in research, is supported. This would enhance my ability to fulfill a desire to be published as an undergraduate. Involvement with the Syracuse community, where I can share my ideas and beliefs comfortably, is a major plus.
