Am learning a lot
The professors at Cazenovia College really try to tailor one's education to one's needs. They offer a fantastic learning center ready and willing to tutor any student in any subject. The advisors and professors want to challenge the students so that they can learn the most from the classes and to be successful in life. The coursework is challenging, but doable, and the college offers a variety of interesting classes.
Am enjoying being here
The school has about 900 students, so the school is a very close community. One can truly find one's niche with all of the different clubs, sports, extracurricular activities, and trips the school offers. The food is pretty delicious considering it is a college cafeteria, and they offer a variety of choices. Also, the school is gorgeous, well-kept, and located next to a scenic lake.
Bang for the buck
Since the college is small, the staff is dedicated to helping each accepted student afford the education. Every student can receive a scholarship upon acceptance (based on high-school merit) for a percentage of the education, and hundreds of other, smaller scholarships are available. The school also makes sure that every student gets the most out of their education and college experience by tailoring the education to the student's needs, as well as getting great internships and jobs for the students.
Tips for prospective students
The school does come with some drama, because word travels very fast in a small school.The college is also located near a lake, which can make for a ton of snow in the winter. Also, not many jobs are available in the village surrounding the college because the village of Cazenovia is very small.
Great for these types of students
If one is looking for a small school, where one can be in intimate classroom settings, then Cazenovia College would be for them. It's a place for students who want to have close relationships with their professors and fellow-classmates. It's a place where one can get the help one needs to be successful in life after college. And also a great place for students who want a challenge, because the honors program offers some rigorous courses.

Am learning a lot
I have seen improvements in my work in all my classes. Part of it is my own drive to succeed, but I have received a tremendous amount of support from my professors.
Am enjoying being here
Great campus, great professors, great people.
Bang for the buck
Good education, not crazy expensive.
The school offers many scholarships.
Tips for prospective students
You can never have too many quarters. Get involved with clubs and other campus activities (this is important on any college campus--it's all part of the college experience).
Visit Caz, stay overnight, talk to coaches and current students.
Great for these types of students
Students looking for a low-key creative atmosphere for art, students interested in a smaller, close-knit college (though be prepared for some drama--it comes with the size), smaller class sizes, strong equine program, and sports teams that become your family.

Am learning a lot
The professors here help each student on an individual level and will not give up on you. They are professors who have either mastered the field or are part of the field of the course or study therefore giving the student the most for their time and money.
Am enjoying being here
There is a lot to do here even though it is a smaller school. The campus hosts many events throughout the year and a lot of them are great. Every weekend we have a movie that is out of theaters but no on DVD yet for students to watch with their friends for free.
Bang for the buck
You learn a lot here and the professors are great. If you like a smaller town that is close to a big city this a great place to be
Tips for prospective students
Apply early and know that the school is smaller. This school may be small but it offers a lot.
Great for these types of students
Students who want to go to a college that will provide great education that is tailored to them. Also for those who like the small school and town atmosphere.

It is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. The school is in a perfect location, close to everything, and state of the art. The people are wonderful, and welcoming.
Tips for prospective students
I received very concise and accurate information about who to talk to, and the school goes above and beyond to make sure that prospective students always have their questions answered. They even set up a Facebook page so that I could meet people who I will be graduating with early, and that we could get to be friends so that we don't feel so alone that harrowing first day.
Academic Rigor
They offer an All-Honors College that provides an academic challenge for the ambitious students. They also have professors who have the highest degree in their fields teaching their students.
Dorm Life
The dorms are in fantastic condition. The buildings are co-ed, with men and women separated by floors, and single gender buildings as well.
Food and Dining
The food on campus looks amazing. From what I have heard from students already there, and the menu I saw online, there isn't much one will miss in the food department.
What to do for fun
There is a lake walking distance from any campus building, and the Main Street is full of shops and restaurants. Syracuse isn't far from Cazenovia at all either.
Great for these types of students
Students who came from small towns, or don't want a big city environment will love going here. Those who love the hustle and bustle of the big city might have to take some time to adjust to the rurality of the campus.
Campus Safety
All the dorms are closely monitored and the doors are all locked after a certain time. It isn't a huge campus, so that certainly helps.

Academic Rigor
Classes here are just like any other school, but with the school being so small the class sizes are about 20 kids max. which gives you and your teacher more one on one time if you need it.
Dorm Life
Dorm life here is pretty fun. Every week Caz put on events for us like comedians, magicians, movies stuff like that. And its all free!

Cazenovia College is a very small college. It is never boring there however and you are always kept on your toes. The teachers and atmosphere is great for learning and furthering your education.
Tips for prospective students
Don't pack too much because You will wind up using half of what you bring! The library hours are a little hard to work with, but there is a building that is open 24 / 7 for all of your projects that are needed! I would also advice for a ingoing freshman to apply for your van license. It is a lot better if you can drive the van just in case you need to go some where. Then you don't need to find some one to drive it for you.
Academic Rigor
The teachers at Cazenovia College are great and very caring. If you are having a hard time with the work then you can easily go to them for help and they will do their best to help you. The classes are challenging but fun and a lot of the classes I have taken already have taken me to places I have never been before and have allowed me to do things I have never done.
Dorm Life
The bathrooms are cleaned each day, and the cleaning lady is very kind! The staff at Cazenovia will always make sure you are enjoying your time in the dorms and if you do not get along with your roommate then it is easy to switch. The rooms are a nice size as well and also come with desks, a wardrobe and a dresser as well. You can have the chance to have your bed lofted or in the ground.
Food and Dining
The food is very good in the cafe. It does seem to get repetitive sometimes however. There is also a small cafe that is open at night until midnight just in case there are some late night munchies.
What to do for fun
Syracuse is located only 20 minutes away from the college and is easily accessible. There is also a mall that is about 15 minutes from the college, and also a shopping center. A van is provided to both of these locations once a week so even incoming freshman can have a chance to leave campus when they can.
Bang for the buck
Cazenovia is a tad expensive. They help you out with scholarships and all however they tend to raise tuition sometimes.
Great for these types of students
Great for students who are really focused on their studies. If you like to party too much then you can find yourself getting bored quiet easily at Caz.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs and things you can do at Caz. We hold a Quad day once a year in the beginning of the first semester in order to have all the clubs in one place to allow everyone to sign up for the ones they like and such.
Campus Safety
The security guards are all very kind and respectful. If you need to get into a building late at night and you need some one to open it then they are always on call to come and open it for you. They also help you out with van keys early in the morning if you need to as well. Also if you are up at the parking lot walking down to the college and if you are a little scared then you can call them and they will walk you down to your dorm for extra safety and for your own comfort.

cazenovia college is great for its size because it does have a lot more to offer then one would think. most of the people are friendly, and willing to get to know a diverse group of people. and the campus life overall is good if you are one that likes to be very involved.
Tips for prospective students
it is a great college to attend if your major is among the options here. because it is a small campus, you will be known and your professors will help you. make sure you are prepared for a change in scenery and for a different way of living because it can be tough.
Academic Rigor
the academics are done very well, generally. some professors could do with being more organized and making sure certain software and tasks are explained properly. learning from any and all of the professors is great fun, and the work load is never too overwhelming.
Dorm Life
at times it can be very noisy and hard to deal with, but over all the resident assistants do well to keep things in check.
Food and Dining
the meals are prepared very well, but seem to repeat more often than they should.
What to do for fun
attending cazenovia activities boards events is great fun. dances, movies, music, and much more.
Bang for the buck
although there is a lot to do here it is a small college and quite expensive.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
the fashion show is huge and almost seems like a tradition, and i love it.
Clubs and Activities
i love the clubs and activities. i am a part of many many clubs and it is great to mingle with so many different people.
Campus Safety
campus safety has things covered. they will help you out at a moment's notice and make sure that people are on their best behaviors.
