I am a second year student at Cortland and I have learned a lot. I am a physical education major, and I can honestly say that no other school in New York state, and maybe even the country can compare. The professors are amazing and all of them are willing to help with any questions you might have. So far, I have taken many activity classes such as basketball, soccer, track and field, and even SCUBA DIVING!!

    AEN Program is very demanding, and they don't seem to help their students effectively. Often felt behind because my advisor was incapable of helping. Honestly, not the most wonderful experience here, after beginning my core classes.

    Cortland has a lot to offer. The work is not to hard yet it challenges you at the same time. Teachers want to see you pass and will work with you if you are not understanding material. Everyday there is some type of activity to do or something fun to do. Cortland is a bar school so you won't have fun unless your 21. However there still are house parties that make up for it

    Cortland County has the highest rape & domestic violence in the state! the campus is cute & safe, but the town is not safe, full of method heads & backwards ideas about women. Be careful leaving came campus.
