    I love it here. I've met some really great people that really made my college experience better. Some don't like the campus because it has a lot of concrete but I think it's nice. The campus has a couple fountains scattered around the campus that make it a great place to hang out.

    I grew up in a small town high school; I then transferred to a small community college. I'll admit, I was afraid to transfer to UAlbany, whose population is an outstanding 19,000+ students. But I never looked back. The campus is beautiful all year round, even in the cold, winter months. There's a lot of things to do all year round, either on campus or off campus. UAlbany's campus is conveniently located a few minutes from the mall, gas stations, grocery stores, convenience stores, tanning salons, etc. I also like the diversity. There are so many different nationalities and such at the school, and we all mix together and nobody minds. There are definitely a lot of interesting people on campus that you'll come across and maybe even meet.

    It is enjoyable here. There are things to do. I am fine with not going to parties because they are not as amazing as one might expect (so I hear).

    There are SO many activities in UAlbany for you to attend. Dorming here is not as great as other universities but the campus itself is very enjoyable. There are many food options as well. Students and faculty are very nice.
