University at Albany, SUNY Graduate Reviews

13 reviews
I am part of a very small program, which is fantastic for me after coming from a large undergraduate institution. Despite the smaller size, we have a very diverse group of students and work together very well. The full-time faculty in the forensics program are fantastic and are always available to provide guidance. Other faculty I've encountered have varied in their teaching style and openness to students, but have generally been respectful and helpful. The campus is beautiful and I, personally, have not had any issues with faculty or fellow students. I'm so glad I made the choice to come back to school and join this program.

Enrolled in master's program in Computer science. Had a terrible experience at this university. Students work at the dining as part time. Most of them do not get internships since when they scrapped out the internships from new york state. Career fairs are below average with almost no companies hiring students. Professors are again average with only a handful of good professors. Fees is low but matches the quality of education here. Only good thing is the beautiful campus and the surrounding. Neighbouring areas are very safe I would say. Connectivity is pretty good with buses running in every 10-15 mins. Also the id card provides free bus transportation to the students. Campus center and the dorms provides good and healthy food options. Good grounds, gym and recreation facilities available. Used to be a party school but not so much parties happen nowadays i feel. Good for visiting and enjoying the place not worth studying here.
UAlbany’s diversity community is very impressive! You get to learn many things about different cultures. Return on investment is pretty good too. I’m currently enrolled and many employers are considering me for positions already.
