"SUNY at Albany quickly became my home after a few days of freshman year. The comrade of going to SUNY at Albany, our purple pride, is strong throughout the current class and its alumni. The professors at SUNY Albany are well equipped to teach you major curricular areas, as well as prompt you to critically think. My skills in critically thinking and how to expand thoughts in conversation have grown greatly in my four years at SUNY Albany. Friends that last a lifetime is a small bonus compared to my education and personal growth I have experienced here. Going to school in Upstate New York is another perk of going to SUNY Albany. Minutes from the capital district also makes it a great choice for internships that our alumni help you secure, and makes commuting there easy. One of the more outstanding areas that I have found at SUNY Albany is their support system. Advisers that are willing and happy to meet with you to discuss class changes, career options, and life advice is part of what made my experience so great here. Switching my major from Business Administration to Psychology was a task that my team of advisers made simple for me. Making sure I stayed on track for graduation and answering any questions that I had about the switch reassured me as a student that SUNY Albany cared about its students and their success, regardless of what it takes to get there. Overall, I and a great four years at SUNY Albany and am thankful for the experiences and degree I have gained."

"While I was SUNY I had a wonderful time. Even though the campus is very large and a lot of students attend there are many opportunities for a small college feel with some classes have about 30 students. In my classes that were 100 students+ I still got to know my professors very well. My classes were challenging but I would see the practicality in everything that I was learning as well as being able to apply it in my everyday life. I love University at Albany so much and studying psychology that I wanted to pursue my Masters in Social Work at NYU. The Career Advisement at UAlbany was also very helpful there was always events to help future us for after we graduated, we had seminars for resume and cover letter writing. I got my first job out of college from a job I applied to at job fair that the school held. The school also had a very diverse population you would meet people from all over the world and there was a club for every time type of person. We had club plenty of clubs for LGBT youth, Habitat for Humanities, Honor Societies, etc. I would recommend anyone to go to UAlbany for any degrees that would want to pursue."

"SUNY at Albany is a great New York public institution. They have a vary of majors for students to choose from. They have hundreds of student groups and organizations for students to get involved it, social or academic related. The diversity of the school is only getting better, from more minority students to more services for LGBTQ or disable students. I would only say for Psychology majors, since there's so many of them, there isn't much guidance for them picking class wise or planning what's next after bachelors."

"School feels even larger than it is, and not necessarily in a good way. Allows for a good breadth of classes, but only in specific departments. Regardless, it's easy to feel lost in the larger classes. Also has significant cultural issues."

"The program was very large and impersonal. I did not feel that I accessed the full amount of resources that may have been available to me. My class sizes were very large and frequently based on a power point, which was posted online prior to class. Minimal engagement with the professors occurred. My "advisor" was a grad student who met with me two months before graduation."
