Brianna - 10/21/2019
Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2018
"I absolutely loved and appreciated my time at SUNY Cortland. The people and opportunities brought to me at Cortland were forever life-altering. My favorite and most influential part of my undergraduate experience were the people I met; friends, professors, mentors. I had people guide me every step of the way and help me become the best version of myself. My favorite opportunity brought to me at SUNY Cortland was studying abroad. During my sophomore year, I studied abroad in Australia and it was the most amazing experience of my life! The employees at the International Programs Office are some of the best around. They are super helpful and will go above and beyond to make your experience amazing. Additionally, I absolutely loved working as a student assistant on campus. I worked alongside these great professionals in the International Programs Office for three years. Although I was a sport management major, this job shaped my passions and aspirations and led me to change my career path. I am now studying higher education, thanks to my lovely coworkers and mentors at the IPO! Cortland is a great school that offers many opportunities at an affordable price. The memories will last a lifetime - you won't regret it!"

"I believe that the college I attended, SUNY Cortland, has prepared me to have a successful future in many ways. Most importantly, Cortland helped shape me as a person. It taught me how to live away from home, how to make new friends and how to balance work and social life. It provided me with an extreme amount of community service opportunities, work opportunities on and off campus, and educational opportunities. I was able to be an active participant in the community by partaking in activities such as the CROP Walk to help end hunger and poverty. I was able to become part of a sorority which taught me leadership skills, how to work well on a team with others, enabled me to raise money for womens cardiac care and taught me time management skills. I was able to look up to many amazing women who are now lifelong friends that have taught me so much about my future career. Thankfully, Cortland introduced me to speech language pathology. The professors in the professional studies school prepared me to excel as a graduate student and I am forever grateful for that. They provided an extreme amount of resources and opportunities to learn about speech pathology. The NSSLHA Speech and Hearing Club allowed us to gain experiences from guest lecturers and conferences and allowed us to bond with our fellow speech pathology peers through community service and social events such as the end of the year banquet. The Center for Speech, Language and Hearing Disorders on the SUNY Cortland campus provided undergraduates with excellent opportunities to observe speech therapy sessions in order to gain knowledge and experience. I am very thankful for my four years at SUNY Cortland as it provided me with an amazing education and lead me to the best friends I could have ever asked for."

"SUNY Cortland is an excellent place to continue your academic career! It provides a setting of community, rigor, diversity, and challenge. Not only does the school provide a variety of opportunities for students to engage in, it also features committed and passionate professors. I would recommend Cortland to any incoming freshman!"

"I loved Cortland personally, loved the area, I had very good teachers. My program was okay. I feel that the classes really weren't rigorous, some of the classes were taught poorly, For the fieldwork assignment it was a waste of time. Finding a internship was hard and very tedious"

"Based on my experience at SUNY Cortland, it is a great school for your money and provides smaller class sizes than larger universities. By attending, you can form relationships with fellow classmates that can help your academic success and teachers."

"I thought the Speech and Hearing Science program was fantastic and prepared me so well for graduate school. My classes gave me the necessary background, and then some, to succeed in my future career, The professors were well- qualified, really cared about the students, and went above and beyond to help their students. I would strongly recommend this program to others. In regards to the college in general, the administration cares more about their own image and making problems go away rather than doing right by their own students. One of my friends was sexually assaulted, and instead of protecting her and preventing further trauma, they dismissed her situation and broke several rules. During the trial, the Code of Student conducted was clearly broken, in numerous ways; when this was brought up, administration said it did not matter and there was no issue instead of investigating this misconduct. Furthermore, the Student Conduct Office clearly favored the perpetrator and engaged in victim blaming and dismissal of a serious issue to make the "problem" go away. While my college experience was not bad and I made lasting friendships and connections, my experience was seriously hindered by the neglect and negativity of the administration. I would not recommend this college to women because clearly, this campus favors the image of student athletes rather than the safety of all students."

"Courses are challenging and informative, but it is difficult to internalize all of the information without putting it to practice. Unfortunately that's just the reality of undergraduate school. I was able to dual major in Spanish as well and I am very happy with my progress in Spanish."

"It was okay. The program I was in was really unstable at the time. Professors were leaving and there were multiple leadership changes in the one year I was there. It was very affordable and the West Campus apartments were nice to live in. I think it would be a better college for undergrad."

"A great teacher preparation program that allowed me to develop the necessary skills to give all students the opportunity to experience success in the classroom regardless of their ability prior to entering my class. The college itself was great for students to learn, grow and develop into individuals that they want to become. My best friend (and soon to be best man) was from Cortland and I would not trade that time for anything."
