I have nothing but positive things to say about Utica College. They set an initiative for private schools by cutting their tuition price by 55 percent! The facilities and staff are outstanding. The classrooms are average sized, and you can also get help if you ask. The student classes all strive to achieve excellence in academics and athletics. It has a great atmosphere and very homely feeling to the college experience.

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).
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.
