I am currently a sophomore at Utica College and I wouldn't trade my decision for the world! I am so happy I chose this school. One of my many favorite things about Utica is the small class sizes. I am really close to a lot of my professors which is very helpful for me. I have always been one who excels when I can talk and ask questions during class. I never feel overwhelmed with having to ask a question or talk to my professor. All of my professors are always super helpful and they will work around my schedule. There are also times where my professor will even send me a text just to see how I am doing with an assignment because they knew I was having trouble. I feel like the education experience at Utica College is unlike any other college. Another thing I love about UC, is that there are always events going on. As students we are never bored and can always find something fun to do! I am really happy with my decision of choosing Utica College.

I am currently a sophomore at Utica College and I am so happy I chose this school. One of my many favorite things about Utica is the small class sizes. I am really close to a lot of my professors which is very helpful for me. Also, I went here for their Construction Management program, it is honestly one of the best in the northeast! The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful! It feels like a family away from home! I also love how many opportunities there are to get involved on campus as well! I am glad I made the decision to come and I hope you will be too!
Utica College has offered me the best opportunity to pursue my goal of becoming an occupational therapist. I knew that I wanted to come toUtica College because as soon as I stepped on campus it felt like my home away from home. The professors take time to get to know you on a personal level and they are always willing to help you. There is a close-knit community at Utica College that is hard to find elsewhere; I have made so many incredible friendships. The small class size is one of my favorite things about Utica College along with the amazing faculty and staff!
