I went on a tour of Syracuse University and was thoroughly impressed with everything I saw. The music building was beautiful and I was in awe of everything I saw there. I have submitted my application to Syracuse University and would love to attend.
Overall, my experience at Syracuse University has been great. My professors have been very engaging and passionate about their subject matter and make attending class very enjoyable. Additionally, the diversity on campus is fantastic and there are endless opportunities to get involved. The only pitfalls are the less-than-desirable dining hall food, continuous safety breaches and lack of a "college town"/street on campus.
I just started school here as a freshman and although the initial transition from home to here was tough, I've adjusted since then and each day it feels more like home here.

Syracuse University has a rich amount of resources in anything you can imagine. The students themselves have always impressed me. They balance work and social lives, network constantly and strive for academic excellence. I have met some incredible minds at this school, those who will likely change the world and others that will teach us how to get there. The faculty is very open to making connections with their students outside class time. They challenge their students while also keeping an open mind to the complexities of life. This school has offered me experiences simply by bringing a bunch of incredible people to one place and cultivating an environment to inspire success.
This is a great school which really values students from all works of life and offers education that will inspire you and help you succeed.
From academics to athletics Syracuse University is hands down one of the best colleges in the nation! There is a reason why have been ranked #1 in school spirit by the Princeton Review for three years in a row now. Everywhere you look, you will see a sea of orange. And let's not forget about the world's cutest mascot, Otto the Orange! You will for sure bleed orange for the rest of your life, should you choose to attend this incredible university!
Syracuse Univseristy is a joke. For a private school where’s plagiarism should be taken seriously, plagiarism was taken lightly. I was in classes with students who would continuously plagiarize on their projects but somehow still are at good academic standing with the school. Syracuse University wants to protect its high reputation by hushing horrible incidents like an almost school shooting this past Spring, plagiarism, and Greek life incidents that are now coming to the light. Syracuse may be diverse but the student body is composed of segregated diversity. I’ve never been more disgusted by a school that truly is in it for the money and can not hold true to its standards.
Hands down the best choice I ever made. The only thing I wish I could change about this school is the weather; the community you find here is indescribable, and it's no wonder SU has placed number one for school spirit in the entire nation for the past three years. You really do get out of it what you put in, however. Opportunity and resources are available everywhere, but you have to be the one to take the initiative and find them.
Syracuse is a wild experience. Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try new things! It'll all be worth it.
Most beautiful campus, student life, and academics. I'm from Los Angeles and it was the perfect change for me.
Great school with a great atmosphere for collegiate fun and learning. Football and basketball teams are best to watch live in the arena & stadium. Go orange!
The campus is beautiful and the people are great. Professors seem to really care about what they teach. Winters can be a little rough if you aren’t used to it.
I absolutely love this school. Despite the ridiculous amount of snow and the high tuition, this school is filled with community and school spirit. The campus is big enough to feel like a large school but small enough where you aren't overwhelmed by the size. Everything from SU sports, greek life and the crazy amount of partying, this school is for anyone and everyone who wants good academics but also have a good time.
For being such a large university, SU manages to keep graduate-level class sizes small. This allows for students to participate regularly and know their professors on a more intimate level. It can be difficult to have issues resolved through larger departments such as financial aid, admissions, and the registrar's office due to it being such a large "machine" of a university. Students have to be very persistent and advocate for themselves.
Syracuse was without a doubt one of the best decisions I've made. However, I need more financial aid and sadly, I am unable to get that through the school. It would be nice to see more communication between staff and students regarding financial aid.
Syracuse university has a very diverse environment and that's what i love most. Overall it has a beautiful campus with lots of land and great opportunists. The school has lots of clubs and sororities. However i hear some of the professors re not to understanding and could be a bit more nice.
Syracuse University is a great school to gain a meaningful degree. The culture is great and during the warm months of the year, it is relaxing to sit on the quad and appreciate the beauty the campus has to offer.

Syracuse University's greatest strength is it's school spirit. During basketball and football games, it is pleasing to see everyone representing their team. Tailgates and day-partys contribute to the school's party scene. Syracuse University throws down!
If Syracuse was located anywhere else in the United States it would widely be considered as one of the premier universities. Unfortunately, it's in snow-ridden upstate NY. The campus is beautiful, greek life is very prevalent, academics are great, and it has better athletics than 95% of the other colleges in the country. Taking the snow/cold out of the equation, this place is near perfect. Having said that, like any school you get what you give. If you come and dont't involve yourself in organizations (club teams, greek life, FYP, clubs,etc.) then your going to have much less fun than someone who does. The snow really isn't that bad and neither is the cold. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.
Syracuse is a diamond in the rough of colleges. It's a well rounded school with a little bit of everything. Greek life, sports, great academics, a good reputation, and a beautiful campus; Cuse has everything to offer. At Syracuse you'll get a great education during the week, and a great social life on the weekends. But the social life isn't just for the weekends either; you better expect to be going out on Tuesdays and Thursdays too!
