What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Geneseo is by no means an easy public school. Each major possesses different challenges and rigors specific to the subject. The general education classes are moderately challenging. I have never taken a class at Geneseo that I felt was a waste of time, even if it did not relate to my major.

As an Early Childhood/Childhood Education Major the most challenging aspect is the time consuming nature of the major. For instance, students are required to attend off-campus field visits throughout the year at various locations. Though this has the potential to be burdensome, the field visits are exceptional learning experiences and are quite fun for a change of pace. Overall the professors in the School of Education are highly dedicated and knowledgeable.

As a Human Development Concentration I have taken a variety of courses in Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology. Within the psychology department I have struggled to get to know the professors and have not always agreed with the difficulty of certain tests, but I have always learned valuable information. My sociology and anthropology classes have also been highly informative with reasonable workloads.

As an Environmental Studies Minor I have absolutely loved every class I have taken. With courses available in various natural and social sciences I have found each course to be highly informative, fairly challenging and well worth the effort. The professors were dedicated and helpful.

Overall, the academic rigor of Geneseo has never been unfair. It has never been a secret that students who dedicate time and effort to their studies are likely to perform well academically. Professors are generally available to students who are struggling and I have never encountered an instance where I felt the academics were unfairly challenging.

academics here is tough. if you never studied a day in your life (like me), you are going to learn to study once you get here.

Geneseo is considered Public Ivy for a reason. This is the hardest SUNY school to get into and has a applicant pool of some of the most well-rounded nerdy people I have ever met. It's an Ivy for the Middle Class.

Very hard and professors are very strict. They want their students to achieve great things.

At Geneseo, you study and sometimes you don't get the grade that you believe you worked for, thus, encouraging you to work and study even harder. At this school your best means going above and beyond what you think is your best.
