Cortland is very diverse. I see people of many races attending the school. Everyone here is so polite and very excited to be here.

There is a big sports presence on campus. There is a lot of educational opportunities through the departments as well as studying abroad. It is a big enough school where you do not know everyone, but where you will pass people you know on campus often.
