    I love how friendly Geneseo students are. In high school. a senior would never talk to a freshman, but here you can be friends with anyone. Everyone's always willing to help you out. The campus is nice, and has gorgeous views. The rooms in my building are a bit small, but that's to be expected. It's a bit rural for my taste, but there is Main street which has some restaurants and cute shops. Rochester is easy driving distance if you have a car, and there's a Walmart, a grocery store, and some other stores in easy driving distance as well. The walks to class can be a bit long, especially when it's cold, but it's nothing you can't get used to. The food could be better, but again, it is college. Even if you're someone who can't have gluten, or if you're a vegetarian or a veagan or whatever, the college has plenty of options for you, and if you are having problems finding food for you and you e-mail them, they are totally willing to help you out. It's really easy to be active in the Geneseo comunity. There are so many musical organizations, community service opportunities, sports, theater, dancing, humans vs. zombies, and cultural organizations to participate in. There are clubs for pretty much every major, as well. Plus Geneseo has GOLD (Geneseo Opportunities for Leadership Development) which are actually pretty renowned. Dartmouth recently purchased this idea from Geneseo, actually. They're hour long leadership workshops, which are really interesting and the certificates you can earn look great on grad school apps, resumes, whatever. There are also plenty of parties for people who want that aspect of the college experience. There are a lot of Greek organization for students who are interested in that, as well.

    It's a wonderful enviroment and a beautiful campus. The college always has events on weekends to attend that are very fun and getting students involved. There is every club imaginable, and you can always create one if there's not. Students are always nice to everyone, and the professors are pleasant. The food is decent, and there's always Main Street for those middle of the night cravings.

    I mean don't get me wrong it's an awesome school but it's ver rural, and rural doesn't even being to explain it. It's got a small town chic that you grow to appreciate and it's wonderful in it's own right (you don't have as many distractions). That being said you can, if you so decide, go out and find stuff to do on any given day. It's a very open, pretty and friendly campus.

    I originally did not want to look at SUNY Geneseo because I did not believe that a public school could be as fantastic as Geneseo truly is. After visiting and attending this college for the past two and a half years, I have to say this is one of the most amazing places you could ever come to. It is really welcoming to everyone, but more importantly everyone is nice here. It is rare for you to find someone who his mean or does not want to help you in any way possible.
