Syracuse University Reviews
Rating 3.62 out of 5 3,376 reviews
The community on campus is really friendly and nice to be in. As a freshman, there is a lot of support and help offered to make moving onto a college campus easy and fun. I would say I really enjoyed the activities and amenities offered, and the academics were equally great. Every professor and class I've had has shown a dedication to learning and teaching, and I appreciated it greatly. Financial counseling, academic counseling, and other services were also greatly helpful.
I had several classes online, as well as some partially online partially in person. I would say that the professors did well adapting to online learning with the little time that they had. Despite it being many of their first times using online learning, almost every class ran smoothly.
I only took one course online as I was graduated by the time the pandemic hit. In my experience, it was very easy and smooth, but that certainly could change when multiple courses are online instead of just 1!
Overall I loved being a part of Syracuse University. There is so much the campus has to offer that I hardly left it during my first year. However, I would say there is also a lot in the greater Syracuse area that students can have easy access to. I wouldn't change my decision at all. Go Orange!
Went as expected. Going through easy courses on an online format was great to save time, but tougher classes on this online format were way tougher.
Their admissions and financial aid was horrible. Waited an extra two months to finally get my admissions letter. And you know what they did? Basically told me that I have to prove myself to them and expected me to take out $80,000 to attend their wannabe college near by with a decent GPA and get only a $10,000 scholarship!!! Like seriously, my family contribution is only $4,000 and you expect me to go through that?! Well guess what Syracuse, I got a 3.9 GPA ELSEWHERE, so forget you and your ripoff financial aid!
I didn't really take any online classes here. Were too expensive, so decided to take some at a different University, it was allowed by my counselor. Hopefully I can return this fall
teachers have been very flexible in adjusting with the online learning experience, for most this is their first time operating this setting as well.
Decent education with a beautiful campus but cost of tuition is very expensive. Not very diverse and lacks effort in promoting diversity
All of my professors learned to adjust and made it easier on a lot of the students. I really did enjoy my online experience and I believe that has a lot to do with how my professors chose to go about this.
Syracuse offers lots of different opportunities to expand your future through many of the different colleges from guaranteed internships, connections to different organizations and more. Though many parts of Syracuse may see rough at the start but it really becomes something to look forward to in the future
Many of the teachers started off with difficulties online but adapted and created different types of learnings systems and such to help provide as much information as possible that one may get when doing the class in person.
The professors are great and really understanding. I also love the campus, it's so pretty, and there's a great gym. There's also a lot of interesting classes to choose from and flexibility. Additionally, they have a great study abroad program. School spirit is real here, which I love. My only serious complaint would be the cost is way too high, but they can give good scholarships and aid.
Syracuse is a place where people can eventually find exactly what they are looking for. The school environment is independent but there are always teachers and advisors who are extremely helpful. It is a place where people want to achieve and you can feel it the second you step on campus.
Online, the school did the best they could in terms of online learning. It was not effective for students to demonstrate what they had learned, but allowed students to receive all the information they needed from each course.
For dealing with a pandemic I think the staff at Syracuse did a great job at trying to make it a good semester. All the professors were very understanding that learning online can be more difficult. Also, the staff and students are all so friendly and helpful. It is also a beautiful campus that you can go out and meet new people and do things around the area.
I think professors did a good job with making sure the material was taught and students were understanding it through the computer. I also thought that it helped that the lectures were recorded so we could go back and watch it if we didn't understand the first time. Professors were also very lenient and understanding that it was more difficult.
