SUNY at Albany Reviews
Overall, I really enjoyed four years at SUNY Albany. I attended the Business school and although it gave me many tools I use today, I do think there was room for improvement. Many of the professors in the business school have accents and are extremely hard to understand. Also many of them teach straight from the textbook or pre-made slideshows in class which makes the content very dry and hard to relate to. I think the business school only sets certain concentrations up for a clear path to success, this mainly being accounting majors. There are constant recruiting events and ways to begin your path in the accounting world. However, you definitely have to go get what you want if you are not an accounting major. If I had not joined ABLE, the business club, and joined the Executive Board, I am not sure I would have gotten the skills and connections I needed for the real world. Even then, I still did not have a job set up after graduation. It took me months after graduation to get a job offer, and the offer was very far off from my marketing concentration. I did not feel I had what marketing agencies were looking for on my resume.
The computer science degree program for Suny Albany is very rigorous. It is designed for you to be an expert by graduation and go have good experience in that field. The college is an open diverse campus with over 20,000 students. It is fairy easy to fit in and feel welcomed in campus.
I went to Ualbany while also working full time in a school. I took most of classes online and while many people consider online classes to lack person to person interaction I was always able to contact my professors and communicate with them. I would highly recommend someone take online courses from this university of even in person classes.
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 Albany is a work hard, play hard kind of school. I received a BA in criminal justice, Russian language, and a minor in journalism. The criminal justice program is ranked one of the best in the nation. The language programs are worth your while, and can give you some of the most amazing study abroad opportunities. The journalism classes were so much fun, and we got to learn from people in the field. They weren't professors, but writers, editors, and reporters. With that kind of instruction, I felt like I was receiving one of the best educations I could ask for. While I am not currently using my degrees in my current job, it still gave me the skills I need to succeed. The journalism minor led me to my current path in the communications field. I am so thankful I was able to explore so many different fields at my time in UAlbany. Their music program is also a ton of fun. Whether you enjoy jazz, concert band, symphony orchestra, pep band, or even marching band - there's a place for you. SUNY Albany is always looking to connect with alumni. If you live in a city, chances are you can meet and network with other alumni. These are great events to create friendships and learn about new opportunities.
The University of Albany School of Public Health is one of the finest Public Health programs available. After researching and contacting other programs I found that U Albany offers a more diverse and directed public heath selection with their degrees that deliver a top notch education. Whether you need one-on-one classroom time or the ease of completing your degree online, the options are available for individual needs. I work full-time and found a graduate certification program that fit well with where I am in my life. Once completed, this program can lead me towards a Masters of Public Health degree down the road. I am very happy with my decision and wouldn't look anywhere else.
I loved my time at SUNY New Paltz. The administration was helpful, though a bit of persistence was required when it came to applying my transfer credits from another school. Otherwise, I always felt safe on campus and am going back for my Masters Degree with enthusiasm to be back!
Most of the professors are research based professors. Ask them if you can shadow or volunteer in their labs. This gets you ahead of the curve when it comes to lab experience and a resume bonus. This is a great school for those who want to pursue a business degree. I made the best out of it while pursing my Biology degree because I would participate in all my classes. you should do the same
The University at Albany has a rigorous Biology Department. Although it is rigorous, it is well worth it in the long run. The professors expect 150 percent out of every student and it is his/hers responsibility to keep up on the work. Like most colleges, some professors are better than others and therefore it is important to be able to adapt. Due to the volume of students at this school there are endless opportunities to get involved with the students and community.
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.
