Syracuse University is a private, research institution located in the New York town of the same name. SU’s 13 academic divisions offer 200 majors and 100 minors for undergraduate students, as well as multiple international study programs in 60 countries, including Madrid, London, Hong Kong, and Beijing. Over 30 research centers and institutes are on the Syracuse, NY, campus, along with the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers, “The Dome,” and 21 residential halls. The university also maintains the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) to “research, educate, and empower.”
Syracuse University has a very distinct atmosphere: it is very inviting, yet allows you to feel free in your individuality. Twenty inches of snow is common so snow days are basically non-existent; in order words, don't expect classes to be cancelled during the wintery months of October through March. SU will more than likely have this pull on you that will make you miss it when it is time to vacate for the breaks.

My first semester at SU was an extremely positive experience. Classes were challenging but I was able to jump right into my major right away, so it didn't feel like work. Socially, there seems to be a group for everyone.
