I am learning tons about the things I care about. SUNY-ESF offers only classes which concern almost any environmental field. In English we read books all about the environment, in History we learn the history of the environmental movement, in math we calculate the height and width of trees. All the professors at ESF are excited to pass on the knowledge they already have. They all have their own studies going on and it’s very easy to be personable with anyone of your professors. The school is smaller, therefore there is plenty of...

    The friendliest people are at ESF. Everyone is very nice and excepting of each other. The professors are close to their students and I couldn't have picked a better school for environmental education.

    The small scale of the school allows you to get to know your professors personally. They are always willing and available to meet if you are not understanding the course material. I am hardly ever in a lecture room with more than 30 students.

    I've been to hell and back and the rock that has kept me afloat is SUNY ESF. The professors I have and the friends I've made have set me on the right path to success. I couldn't have chosen a better school.

    SUNY ESF is the perfect school for earth lovers. The campus is small and friendly with some accessibility to SU's campus. Living on campus is good to meet more people.

    I'm just starting my second semester here, and I'll note one thing - the people here are extremely friendly and enthusiastic, but definitely are NOT your typical college crowd. We're not all hippies like you'd expect, but you'll begin to notice that us stumpies (including the professors!) have some odd little eccentricities that you'll either find totally charming, or just plain weird. The campus as a whole (small as it is) tends to reflect the people here, and all of it creates an amazing sense of community.

    ESF is a small school, but because of that everyone gets to know each other really well. The professors are incredible, and they really care about you doing well individually; they are willing to work with you if you have a problem. ESF is an awesome school- four out of five stars!

    SUNY-ESF is an awesome environmental school. There are few colleges around the nation that have the same resources that ESF has. The small nature of the school is comforting while having the surroundings of Syracuse and Syracuse University to spice up the college life!

    SUNY ESF is an environmental school with a diverse group of students that all share the common goal of making a difference in the world. It is a relatively small college, however, the tightness of the students is what make this place really special. Also, the close relationship with the professors is unlike one you will find at any other college.

    Your experience at ESF will be what you make of it because there is always something going on around campus, but you really have to make smart decisions what you do with your time. The course work is hard but manageable if you don't go out partying every night and actually study hard. Syracuse U. students are sometimes very judgmental and think ESF students mooch off their university but that is not true, and with that said, there are some really awesome people at both ESF and Syracuse University.
