    The University at Albany has a a lot of different types of kids that come from all over the State, making it a very diverse school which can be a good thing (experience other types of people) and a bad thing (more chances of meeting bad kids). The campus is large and there are a few decent looking buildings, however the general gist of the school is dreary and gloomy due to the dull gray color of the school and how similar every building looks. If you are not used to cold winters do not come here!!!

    University at Albany is overall a pleasant school. I have enjoyed my first semester at the facility. I believe anyone who is interested in going here would feel the same way.

    The campus is beautiful and the city is very exciting. The classes are interesting and engaging. The extracurricular activities are amazing and if you can't find one for you, the campus gives you the freedom to create your own.

    The campus is surrounded by fountains and windows, making it seem so big and bright. Everyone I've met there has been so welcoming and informative. Some think that being a SUNY school, it's not the best but, they have some of the top rated academic programs and so many amazing activities that there is always so much going on!

    I am an online graduate student. I do not know about the on-campus aspect of the school. Online curriculum is sufficient.

    University at Albany is a school I highly recommend because it has great visual campus. The university also has a great School of Business well known throughout all the Suny schools. The professors at university are also really good at helping students when struggling because they have many opportunities to meet with them.

    The ability to draw in every aspect that students would want to be involved in. Give opportunities for students to expand to different groups. A campus of diversity that allows students from different regions and countries to learn each other's cultures.

    Albany is very academically challenging, but this in itself becomes very rewarding for its students. Albany is also incredibly athletically talented and its students get deeply involved in school spirit, chanting the well known UA U Know cheer in the crowd. This undergraduate school provides so many opportunities for its students to get involved and have not only a great college experience, but also a great opportunity to create successful pathways for their futures.
