SUNY College at Cortland Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
I loved Cortland personally, loved the area, I had very good teachers. My program was okay. I feel that the classes really weren't rigorous, some of the classes were taught poorly, For the fieldwork assignment it was a waste of time. Finding a internship was hard and very tedious
Based on my experience at SUNY Cortland, it is a great school for your money and provides smaller class sizes than larger universities. By attending, you can form relationships with fellow classmates that can help your academic success and teachers.
I thought the Speech and Hearing Science program was fantastic and prepared me so well for graduate school. My classes gave me the necessary background, and then some, to succeed in my future career, The professors were well- qualified, really cared about the students, and went above and beyond to help their students. I would strongly recommend this program to others. In regards to the college in general, the administration cares more about their own image and making problems go away rather than doing right by their own students. One of my friends was sexually assaulted, and instead of protecting her and preventing further trauma, they dismissed her situation and broke several rules. During the trial, the Code of Student conducted was clearly broken, in numerous ways; when this was brought up, administration said it did not matter and there was no issue instead of investigating this misconduct. Furthermore, the Student Conduct Office clearly favored the perpetrator and engaged in victim blaming and dismissal of a serious issue to make the "problem" go away. While my college experience was not bad and I made lasting friendships and connections, my experience was seriously hindered by the neglect and negativity of the administration. I would not recommend this college to women because clearly, this campus favors the image of student athletes rather than the safety of all students.
Courses are challenging and informative, but it is difficult to internalize all of the information without putting it to practice. Unfortunately that's just the reality of undergraduate school. I was able to dual major in Spanish as well and I am very happy with my progress in Spanish.
It was okay. The program I was in was really unstable at the time. Professors were leaving and there were multiple leadership changes in the one year I was there. It was very affordable and the West Campus apartments were nice to live in. I think it would be a better college for undergrad.
A great teacher preparation program that allowed me to develop the necessary skills to give all students the opportunity to experience success in the classroom regardless of their ability prior to entering my class. The college itself was great for students to learn, grow and develop into individuals that they want to become. My best friend (and soon to be best man) was from Cortland and I would not trade that time for anything.
