Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5 stars
Michelle Asemota - 3/16/2017
Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2015
"As an undergraduate student at Binghamton University, you are prepared to enter an acute, dynamic and nebulous workforce. As a PPL student, I was urged to ask and pursue the bigger questions. Over the course of my academic career, I fine tuned my analytical skills and gained invaluable experience in critically evaluating, reasoning and charitably understand opposing world views. I graduated with a craving for nuance, complexity, and challenge."

Tracy Liu - 3/14/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017
"The biology major was divided into two focuses: biochemical, cell and molecular biology (BCMB) or ecology, evolution and behavior (EEB). The classwork was very different in their approach, BCMB classes tended to be more rote memorization while EEB classes were more discussion based and focused on current issues as well. Class diversity leaned towards more whites in EEB and more racial diversity (especially Asian and Indian) in the BCMB classes. Overall, the experiences in both were great and academically rigorous without being unnecessary."

"SUNY Binghamton was an amazing place to learn, grow, and discover. The campus felt safe and welcoming. The professors were both knowledgable in their fields and in educating their students. I wish that the school had more diversity among it's student body. I would also liked to have seen more effort form the faculty/ advising to elp student learn about actual jobs that involve their major."

"SUNY was an amazing experience for an unbeatable price! I made life long friends with my classmates and faculty, learning an incredible amount about myself, my area of study, and other people. The school cares about its students and wants them to succeed. There are so many wonderful services offered to students on campus."

Graduation Year: 2015
"I loved Binghamton University. The surrounding town was kind of dead but you're upstate and not much to do off campus. But Binghamton was one of the best experiences I've ever had. My professor were always available. And I even found a lifetime mentor while working in her lab for 3 out of three 4 years there. It takes time to adjust but Binghamton is worth the investment and you will be sad to leave on graduation day."

Taylor - 8/29/2016
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2013
"Although this was not my initial intent of going to this undergraduate school, I was pleased with my choice to switch my major into this program. I was able to have more applied experience with counseling, rather than only read psychology theories from a text book. I would recommend this major to anyone interested in the counseling field, especially with youth."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015
"To some, Binghamton University is know as the "public Ivy" but to me-- my home, the place where I lived for 4 years and experienced countless unforgettable memories and made lifelong friendships . BU presented me with endless opportunities to achieve new things both academically and personally and I would not change my experience for anything. However, as cliche as it may sound, I truly believe that the school is what you make of it and every year I will admit that I felt like a different. I went through both ups and downs but learned how to always bounce back, with a little support from those around me. If I were to give anyone some advice about starting at BU it would be to use ALL the resources available to you and take advantage of everything. Use the teachers, use the studying services, use your connections and network; don't take your time their for granted and promise that you will leave a better more successful person because of it."

"Binghamton University is a great college all around and I feel prepared to succeed in the workforce. BU has helpful faculty, a wide range of courses to choose from and many networking opportunities to help jump start your professional career. I highly recommend this university to students who are looking for an affordable education that will give you the most bang for your buck."

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014
"I had an amazing college experience. Binghamton is truly one of the top public universities, the quality of education I received compared to that of my friends who went to other state schools was far superior. The professors were extremely knowledgeable, many with terminal degrees in their field. However, doing well in classes definitely requires work on the part of the student - going in to office hours and taking other opportunities to connect with your professors as often as possible will help you massively."

Meg - 5/31/2016
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013
"At first, I hated it. I really did. It was not until my second year that I really started getting the hang of things, getting to know people and my professors, did I fall in love. Binghamton is a great place, if you make an effort to get to know the right people. If you don't make an effort, it can be really lonely."
