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 a great university for future engineers who seek to have a career with the best businesses and companies in the nation and the world. The professors provide great academic material for students to gain knowledge to use for their desired careers and help students fully understand concepts and principles of the subject. Outside the classroom, students can easily work together and help each other on their studies. To further practice their respective studies, the university consists of multiple student organizations involving interest and/or background, such as Formula SAE for engineers. In addition, there are internship and job fairs every spring and fall, research opportunities, and career workshops including job shadows that help students be more prepared for real world applications.
The current campus is very obviously headed towards potentially great changes in the future. The chancellor frequently communicates with the students, encouraging acceptance within our community. Within the engineering school, several of the staff are more than willing to offer help outside of usual assigned office hours and will encourage you to follow your passion regardless of their own personal interests. Although the area surrounding the university can be dull, and the weather challenging, individuals within the residence halls and those in charge of campus life try their best to offer as many interesting activities for the students.
