What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
SUNY ESF is an environmental school with a diverse group of students that all share the common goal of making a difference in the world. It is a relatively small college, however, the tightness of the students is what make this place really special. Also, the close relationship with the professors is unlike one you will find at any other college.
Ashlyn from South Lima, NY
SUNY-ESF is an awesome environmental school. There are few colleges around the nation that have the same resources that ESF has. The small nature of the school is comforting while having the surroundings of Syracuse and Syracuse University to spice up the college life!
