    The campus is beautiful and the city is very exciting. The classes are interesting and engaging. The extracurricular activities are amazing and if you can't find one for you, the campus gives you the freedom to create your own.

    The campus is surrounded by fountains and windows, making it seem so big and bright. Everyone I've met there has been so welcoming and informative. Some think that being a SUNY school, it's not the best but, they have some of the top rated academic programs and so many amazing activities that there is always so much going on!

    I am an online graduate student. I do not know about the on-campus aspect of the school. Online curriculum is sufficient.

    University at Albany is a school I highly recommend because it has great visual campus. The university also has a great School of Business well known throughout all the Suny schools. The professors at university are also really good at helping students when struggling because they have many opportunities to meet with them.

    Albany is very academically challenging, but this in itself becomes very rewarding for its students. Albany is also incredibly athletically talented and its students get deeply involved in school spirit, chanting the well known UA U Know cheer in the crowd. This undergraduate school provides so many opportunities for its students to get involved and have not only a great college experience, but also a great opportunity to create successful pathways for their futures.

    It is a very informative Undergraduate school. It has a lot of opportunities for Biology students to be able to work one-on-one with professors. It is a positive community where students are able to develop their own ideas, not only about their academics but also long life endeavors.

    SUNY Albany is a great school with a diverse student body, and wonderful professors. There are many distinct faculty that are leaders in their fields. The variety of resources in the two libraries are a priceless commodity in a university environment.

    UA has been a great experience for me in general and I really enjoy the environment here because no matter what kind of person you are, you're going to find somewhere to fit in. The cost is the reason why I'm deciding to transfer because although the slogan is get the bang for your buck the amount of debt I will be in when I leave in four years does not seem worth it. Not to discourage people looking to apply because it is a great school but consider finances because although state schools are considerably cheaper, it is still an expense to most families.
