What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
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.
Sabrina from Buffalo, NY
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!
