"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."

"Tell us about your college experience.My school was a perfect fit for me! Big enough to meet someone new every day but small enough where I felt a sense of community. I was able to pursue opportunities I never thought were possible. I'm a Bearcat til I die!Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes I would. Having an English degree and a minor in Women's Studies assisted in my ability to communicate effectively (most of the time) and my has inspired my passion for social justice.What advice can you offer other students?Go with your gut. People will always tell you to go to law school or med school or to have a degree that is all about the money but if your heart is not in it, there's no point."
