In general, living on campus is amazing. Living at college is amazing! It's overall, a great experience. My experience with Utica College specifically, I mean, it's what you make it. Having hall mates sometimes can be unlucky, mine specifically seemed to all come out of hell. Some people never sleep..and no one follows quiet hours. So be prepared to be annoyed at 4 am on a week night when you have an 8 am exam..or even a Friday night when you have a 5 am bus to catch for a sports team. For some reason, maintenance didn't come on the weekend. Which was when it was needed most. So my whole floor usually went 3 days a week with throw up, wine, and god knows what other stains on the floor and smells of beer and liquor. Plus we would run out of toilet paper, and those community showers..thank god you only have to deal with them your first year. For some reason it was okay for girls to plaster their hair all over the place. BUT. At the end of the day. It is a lot of fun to live with all your friends, in walking distance to pretty much anything you needed to survive (the academic buildings, library, and café were roughly 4 minutes away walking).

Review Your College
I really enjoy the vast variety of programs, clubs, and organizations that Utica College has to offer, but with accepting over 600 students each year, there isn't much space for everyone in the residential buildings, in freshman dorms, students are placed in triples, and don't have much personal space. Utica just rented out half of the Ramada, where I am currently staying, providing students with rooms, and a shuttle for students who don't have cars, but they should looking into more residential buildings on campus where students are able to have access to everything on campus. Also, to me, the food in the dining commons really isn't the greatest with limited hot options and rather spicy foods than normal. With most negativity comments of this College, I continue to deal with these issues, just to be able to get the good education programs and courses that Utica has to offer, as well as the tuition reduction that was set in place in Fall 2016.
I love Utica College! It is what you make of it, I personally am having some of the best times here at UC. I have met people from all over the country and world, it is such an amazing experience. UC is a relatively small school which I really like. It's very easy to make friends and everyone talks to everyone, it's a very personal and homey environment. I like walking to class and being able to say hello to a few of my friends on the way. Do not worry though it is not extremely small, I am always seeing new faces. The professors are awesome and ALWAYS there to help. The food is sometimes crappy but the other things on campus make up for it. There are also a lot of bars to go out to and the frats or houses typically have parties. I love UC, it's an awesome college with awesome students and awesome professors.
