Syracuse University Reviews
I graduated from SU in 1988. I can't say enough good things about it. It has everything - a beautiful campus, excellent courses and devoted instructors, great Greek and sports life, if that is your preference, great dorms, tons of activities you can participate in. In addition, SU is a very generous school - it offers excellent financial aid for those who need it. I would HIGHLY recommend SU to you!
First off, I love all the resources the campus has to offer. If you’re struggling academically, mentally, emotionally, or even physically, there are many different departments in which can help fix that issue. Academically, there’s tutoring everyday of the week. Mentally and emotionally, we have a great department for counseling and human services. And physically, if you want to improve your daily health, body, or well being we have personal training services on campus as well. We have access to dining halls where there’s amazing food being served throughout the day. Being a transfer, the transition to such a prestigious university was difficult at first but Syracuse and its resources definitely helped a whole lot and I couldn’t be more thankful. Also, the networking on this campus is great. Finding an internship can be difficult, but the wide amount of Syracuse alumni working in different companies around the world definitely boosts our chances.
It's a well-rounded school with everything. Greek life, sports, great academics, a good reputation, and a beautiful campus; Syracuse has everything to offer. At Syracuse, you'll get a great education during the week, and a great social life on the weekends. Great experiences with most classes and instructors, and feel that I have networked and learned more than I could imagine since my first day of class. Toured the college this summer and I absolutely loved it. The campus was amazing and everyone we spoke to was super nice. Syracuse's academics, student life, and athletics allow any student to explore their forte and find others with similar interests and life goals.
