What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
SUNY Potsdam is a valuable college where there is always something going on for the students. They have so much to offer and it's a wonderful environment. More importantly, the education I'm receiving there is top notch!
SUNY Potsdam Student
I think SUNY Potsdam is a very good school because of the opportunities you have here. Not only was the food rated number one in the SUNY system, but there's a plenty of chances for first-class entertainment from the Crane School of Music, along with various clubs and activities going on around campus. It's so easy to feel involved and get into something, which is just as important as the learning aspect of college life.
