"SUNY Brockport has not given me a positive experience yet. I am transferring out of this town because there is nothing around. My dorm room was so small and had mold all through the windows. The campus is so small yet, so windy. Brockport gets about 1 foot more of snow and a lot colder weather than anywhere else in Rochester. I just read an article that a lot of students had decided to transfer out of this school, myself included. Brockport is all about money; they have given me several parking tickets even though I could not afford the $200 parking pass for the one semester I've been here. The schooling itself is fine, I guess. But, none of my professors or advisors have actually cared about my future. Not to mention the fact that I had to get 2 doctor's to write me a reason as to why I wanted to commute from home. Which, is ridiculous because I live inside the 30 mile radius. All they care about is your money. If you are looking to go to a SUNY school, do not go to Brockport."

  • Degree: Mathematics
"My college career began in computer science but I decided that program was not meant for me. While in this program I had taken enough math courses that I only needed a few more to obtain my degree. I finished my undergraduate degree with Bachelor's in Mathematics. As far as the program itself, I would say the experience was a good one. My only complaints about the math program are: 1. For two of my required courses, the professor wrote the textbook which made it more difficult than those mass produced by a publishing company. 2. One of my other courses was taught by a TA. Myself and others in this class did not really learn the building blocks required to take the second class in this topic. It made it much harder to be successful. The last thing I will say about college is a general statement. Most, if not all, college professors have had no training on how to teach. The certainly know the content but when it comes to the actual teaching part, they are not trained at all like a high school teacher is."

"Choosing Brockport for my undergrad was one of the best choices I made. Many of the professors go out of their way to make a connection with their students and their are countless opportunities available from tutoring services to Greek life to on-campus clubs to activities every day on campus. Brockport provides quality education while offering students with the services they need to be a successful and well-rounded individual, including career services, mental health counseling, a health center, and career fairs."

"I had a great time during my undergrad. I learned a lot through my classes. The only complaint I had was that it was very research-based with very little practical experience. I did not feel as though I was prepared as well as I could be for in the field experiences."

"Coming from NYC, I'm Jamaican with African ancestry, Brockport, was a reverse culture shock in 2006-2010 it was not very diverse at all. However, it was a nice campus clean and conducive to learning. I was focused on my school work so I didn't have a problem. I was a double major in communications and political science. I was a good school, average I didn't feel like I was pushed particularly hard or encouraged to think differently. I was not diverse at all, and that was a bit discomforting for me, but I just adjusted and focused on my classes. I got the experience I wanted: get far from the city, in a brand new environment. I went through more self-growth and development that I can remember clearly. I remember a few instances of subtle racism, but no one was every directly racist and made me feel unsafe or uncomfortable."

"Academics were good. Campus life was a little dull. Off campus living was fun, as it was a great college town environment."

"I cried when I received my scholarship letter from Brockport, not because I was happy but because I didn't want to go there and knew I'd be obligated to due to financial reasons; however, I can honestly say that it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. The small class sizes allowed me to get to know my professors on a personal level, I was able to serve the college and gain leadership skills in more than four student leadership roles, and I made connections that helped get me into one of the top graduate programs in the country for my field."

"I felt that this program did not offer graduate level classes. I was in many classes that also had undergraduates and what made it a graduate-level class was an extra paper. I also did not feel that I had adequate training in things like assessment and classroom management. However, I got my certification and it was much cheaper than most other schools in the area."

"Brockport was an amazing place to go to school. The professors (for the most part) wanted to teach, not just conduct their own research. It's large enough that there are lots of opportunities to meet people and get involved, but not so big that you feel like a number. Brockport itself is a very small town, but Rochester has lots to do. There have been a lot of improvements on the campus in the last 10 years, so the facilities are continually changing for the better. If I had to make the decision again, I would absolutely still choose Brockport. When I left to pursue graduate studies at a large, household name university, I was astonished to find out just how unique and valuable the Brockport experience was (not to mention the quality of education compared to price is unbeatable)."

"I am currently in the forensic accounting graduate program. I feel that this program is a very good choice. Not many colleges currently offer the program and the expectations and rewards of the program are high. It is nice to be able to narrow down the scope of where you would like to work in the accounting field. This a highly competitive program and field but there is still a sense of inclusion. Overall my experience has been outstanding in this program thus far."

"A pro of this MFA in dance and choreography program is the diversity of education that I receive. The courses vary from pedagogical, choreographic, technical, and research content. It is a small program which allows the students and professors to have a close, mentoring relationship. Each graduate student has different goals and talents and the program/professors will help direct and cultivate those said goals and talents. As the program takes three years to complete, students are able to really hone in on their area of research and study, providing them with a rich groundwork from which to spring from. One of the cons of this program is the competitive nature. Since it is an art based program there are fewer scholarships and opportunities for funding research. further, teaching assistant-ships are also difficult as the program is smaller and does not offer a vast array of classes for graduates to assist for."
