    Suny Plattsburgh is an amazing school! The staff, professors, advisors, even just the people who volunteer there are such a gem to be with. There's a certain type of positive and helpful atmosphere when you get there that just warms your heart. There's a wide range of degrees for anyone-even if your going in as undeclared! There are so many choices and chances to get involved! The fraternity & sorority life on campus is so loving and caring, and very promoting. They do so much to aid people in the community and a lot for charities and organizations! There so many clubs that you are bound to find your niche at one of them, from zombies to the Galilean society! There are many sports that no matter where your coming from, you'll definitely be able to continue playing here. The campus is large and the other students are more than willing to help another out, there's so much common curtesy there! The school offers scholarships too depending on your academic achievements-which is always good. Plus! There's a very protective university police that works hard to keep the students safe and secure. The food is very good and the buildings and grounds are clean! It's such a joy to be in if your from the busy hustling dirty city! It's kind of like a vacation from home, that's at least what I think of it as. It's really a beautiful environment to be and learn in.
