What Students Are Saying

Despite the frigid weather, the atmosphere at SUNY Geneseo is unparalleled with attention grabbing sunsets, rolling hills and a picturesque college town vibe. The academic program at Geneseo provides a diverse array of classes with professors who genuinely care about their students and want to see them succeed. Socially, Geneseo is in remote Western New York, but the friends I have made here helped me explore the events and places that surround SUNY Geneseo.
