    Greek Life

    No Greek life on this campus.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Green Lakes is a fun and gorgeous park 20 minutes from campus. It's open year-round but there's a large beach you can all hang out on and even bar-b-q when it's warm.

    What to do for fun

    You can go to Syracuse University for basketball and football games, head downtown to eat at great restaurants such as Pastabilities, or go out to a country bar. It's a very diverse area.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you read the application details thoroughly and have all of your classes complete or almost complete before you apply. Hours matter, depending on what type of program you're applying to so make sure if your program requires patient-care hours, you get started early.

    In three sentences

    Upstate has a lot of different programs. Most of the time the programs do not mix but if you are in the PA program or MD programs, you will share some classes. Most students are very outgoing and many participate in intramural sports. It's a very active group with lots of graduate students running in marathons and 5Ks. The area is not in the best city but if you travel with other people you should not have a problem.
