SUNY College at Brockport Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
Coming from NYC, I'm Jamaican with African ancestry, Brockport, was a reverse culture shock in 2006-2010 it was not very diverse at all. However, it was a nice campus clean and conducive to learning. I was focused on my school work so I didn't have a problem. I was a double major in communications and political science. I was a good school, average I didn't feel like I was pushed particularly hard or encouraged to think differently. I was not diverse at all, and that was a bit discomforting for me, but I just adjusted and focused on my classes. I got the experience I wanted: get far from the city, in a brand new environment. I went through more self-growth and development that I can remember clearly. I remember a few instances of subtle racism, but no one was every directly racist and made me feel unsafe or uncomfortable.
I had a great experience at SUNY the College at Brockport. Studying there prepared me for the real world and increased my potential to be hired. I played softball there for 2 years and they have fantastic athletic facilities and programs. If you're looking for a college that provides you with a lot of opportunities to succeed then SUNY the College at Brockport is for you.
Academics were good. Campus life was a little dull. Off campus living was fun, as it was a great college town environment.
I cried when I received my scholarship letter from Brockport, not because I was happy but because I didn't want to go there and knew I'd be obligated to due to financial reasons; however, I can honestly say that it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. The small class sizes allowed me to get to know my professors on a personal level, I was able to serve the college and gain leadership skills in more than four student leadership roles, and I made connections that helped get me into one of the top graduate programs in the country for my field.
I loved it, was the best time of my life learning my craft and about myself
I felt that this program did not offer graduate level classes. I was in many classes that also had undergraduates and what made it a graduate-level class was an extra paper. I also did not feel that I had adequate training in things like assessment and classroom management. However, I got my certification and it was much cheaper than most other schools in the area.
Brockport was an amazing place to go to school. The professors (for the most part) wanted to teach, not just conduct their own research. It's large enough that there are lots of opportunities to meet people and get involved, but not so big that you feel like a number. Brockport itself is a very small town, but Rochester has lots to do. There have been a lot of improvements on the campus in the last 10 years, so the facilities are continually changing for the better. If I had to make the decision again, I would absolutely still choose Brockport. When I left to pursue graduate studies at a large, household name university, I was astonished to find out just how unique and valuable the Brockport experience was (not to mention the quality of education compared to price is unbeatable).
The best education anywhere. Personalized attention in a fostering environment.
