What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
As many students before me have said time management is key. As a engineering student, I am always busy with school work or clubs. It really is important to balance studying and leisure time but once you get the hang of it, SUNY Binghamton is great!
Wendy from Brooklyn, NY
Bring rain boots and warm clothing! The weather is as bad as everyone makes it seem, but one thing I can say about it is that it is VERY bipolar. The temperature range for one day in early fall usually ranges from 40-70 degrees Fahrenheit so layer it up to make it easier to put on and strip off when necessary.
Dana from New York, NY
Be prepared for the cold.
If you're premed, be prepared to not sleep freshman year.
If you're not premed, be prepared to not see your friends that are.
Go to the frat parties. Its worth it.
Make as many friends as possible as soon as possible.
Smile.

Do well in high school because it is a challenging school to receive acceptance to. Work hard to develop personal skills and responsibilities before going into college so that you aren't overwhelmed by the many freedoms and liberties.
Louis from Brooklyn, NY
Take a tour of the campus. I had no intention on attending a SUNY (or any college in NY state for that matter) until I visited SUNY Binghamton. From the moment I got here, I was in love. Also, be sure to check out all of the clubs and organizations that Binghamton has to offer. There's something for everyone. Get involved!
Lauren from Staten Island, NY
Rainboots are a must at this school. The weather can be downright mucky at times, but that's how any other winter might be... just a bit more severe at Binghamton. Despite the weather, I wouldn't have chosen any other school.
Rebecca from Morganville, NJ
WEATHER: Try to visit the school before you apply. The weather in beginning of the fall semester and the end of the spring semester is going to be amazing-or very hot. However, the winter is going to be harsh. Sometimes the weather will hit below 20 and the wind will be rough on your skin because of the cold. The weather also changes from winter like in the morning to summer like in the afternoon. PROFESSORS: Look up your professors before you register for class. Sometimes, your professor can make or break your interest in the major. Go to office hours and get to know your professors! (For future recommendation letters)

Sharon from NYC
Visit the campus. It's prettier than most SUNY schools and is easy walking.
Nick from Delmar, NY
Buy a raincoat and rain boots.
Take it seriously but take the time to relax and unwind.
Make the most of the opportunities you come across.
Get involved!
Anon
Be prepared to work for your grades but also get involved in many activities that are offered on campus. Save extra money for the times you want to get off of campus and eat in different restaurants or shop. Although you will see construction on campus, you will know that Binghamton continues to update its dorms, student center, and living and learning quarters for future students.
