Brockport Reviews

Great school district to be connected with. Supports all extra curricular activities whether they be sports, music, or theatre related. Faculty love to see their students strive and are overly invested. Political views seem to play a role at times due to the small town vibe. The Brockport college makes it feel overly busy and crowded, however the school provides services to the townspeople like the gym, skating rink, and the pool. Great local businesses down Main Street including Lift Bridge! And there's a Wegmans. The Seymour library is also a plus.
The Village at Brockport has allowed me to grow as a person. Living here for eight years and attending The College at Brockport has given me experience in various areas, both educationally and professionally. The town's opportunities are endless if they are taken advantage of. Main Street offers pizza joints, coffee shops, antique stores and a movie theatre, which exists in a building that has been standing since 1907. The college offers many events for fun and for furthering oneself professionally. The town and college are linked closely. One thing no one could survive without is food. There are many grocery stores located both in walking distance from the main village and at the convenience for passerbyers. The most intriguing is the history in Brockport, which can be displayed both on campus in the archives, or in the village where museums and local stores proudly hold information.
It's a great little college town on the Erie Canal. its a decent mix of families and college kids most of the year. There's more "low income housing" than there used to be and more are being built nearby. The weather is only nice may-sept and then it's grey and cold the rest of the year. There's a serious increase in drug problems, mainly involving heroin. The police force for Brockport is unnecessary and give out the most tickets in our county. There's some businesses opening but not too many employment opportunities.
