"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."

"Overall I had a good college experience, not great however. I felt that I could have received better career guidance and advising, which was not available. Socially, I have 3 friends that I have kept in touch with. During my time at Binghamton, I felt that it was hard to make friends if you did not mesh well with the people in your dorm. The clubs were a major highlight of my college experience. I got involved with Challah for Hunger on campus which was a very rewarding and enriching experience. Depending on what you are looking to do, there are not necessarily many opportunities in the area to get hands-on experience. This is something that a student should think about before attending but the experience really is what you make out of it!"

"Going to Binghamton was one of the best decisions I've made. It's a great education at a state-school price. Most students graduate with little to no debt and land pretty high paying jobs. I will always remember my time at Binghamton very fondly. There are tons of ways to get involved and find your niche. It's actually very unique because mostly everything is student run. There are no faculty advisers to the student government or the clubs so it's a rare opportunity to manage something huge at a very young age which looks awesome on a resume. Those opportunities do not exist at other schools where there is way more hand-holding and red tape. Binghamton is also a very diverse school in many ways and offers really good exposure to the real world. Lastly, the campus, especially after recent construction, is gorgeous and state-of-the-art. Almost all of the dorms are brand new and look like 5 star hotels. There are many new resources available and the university continues to find new ways to support its students."

"Binghamton gave me everything I wanted in a University. The professors were of a level you would not expect from a state school. I am actually thinking of returning to complete a Masters."

"I'm glad I got three majors as they have all influenced my life and career. Study abroad was important. I'm glad I went to a state school to save money. Dorming and going away were also important for my growth and development. I learned more from my leadership role in a community service organization than I did in the classroom. Be sure to explore as many options as possible to grow and increase your knowledge for your future."

"The graduate school itself and the advisers within the program were wonderful. The university itself was difficult to navigate a times when I needed help and I would sometimes have to speak with several people, be transferred several times, and explain myself numerous times before I would get an answer to my question."

"The pros include the convenient NYC location of this graduate program, the flexible schedule of the classes, the awesome professional network, and the intimate cohort size. The cons include restricted faculty accessibility and intense workload packed into a 12-month program."

"I have not complain i am really happy for being accepted in this program. It is a complete challenge trying to pursue my goals and dreams here. My only concern is outside campus especially public transportation. Unfortunately school cannot provide financial aid for more students that is really bad for me because i do not have financial support."

"Our faculty in the SAA program are incredibly diverse - a total pro of our program! They come from different backgrounds, geographic regions, practitioner years, and have vastly different research interests! They are almost always willing to work with you and appreciate 1:1 meetings to learn about the students. I've had many professors say, "How can I help you achieve your dream?" after a 1:1 with them. Binghamton, in general, isn't the greatest city in the world, but it's far from the worst! There is an appreciation for art and culture (it's hard not to have one - the college students here make up a large portion of the population and local businesses need to cater to those needs!)"

"I have always gone to small schools so this school is perfect for me. My undergraduate school environment was even smaller and being from New York City it was hard to adjust to that but this school is like the best of both worlds. The teachers are great and they try the best to help their students and it is truly appreciated."

"The pros of this grad program is that it can be completed in only one year and only on Saturdays, making it possible for those who have full-time jobs/families to get their Master's degree. The con of this program is that it is challenging to sit for long days in one classroom."
