"Nice campus. Small in terms of other schools in number of students but it helps you make a connection to professors. Lots of opportunity to expand interests and work within your major with your professors and other students"

"Small school, you will see the same people in all your classes. Not as many choices of majors and courses as a bigger school, so you can't really specialize in any field, but the professors are very good and you do get a good education. The campus is very pretty but smells like alfalfa and/or cow manure a lot of the time."

"The school is pretty small, so there aren't as many choices for majors/classes as you would find with a bigger school. The faculty is pretty great, though. The level of education you get will be much better than most other schools. They do take their reputation for being the "Ivy League" of state schools seriously."

"I transferred to SUNY Geneseo after community college, and I am so happy that I did. I began in the Education program but realized that it wasn't for me. I fell in love with my English classes and the English faculty, and I wanted to commit more time to that major. The English department at Geneseo offers a wide variety of classes from medieval literature to comparative literature to in-depth courses on major authors. All of the teachers are committed to seeing their students improve and are very personable. I grew very close with my professors. The school as a whole was great. I had a job at the dining hall and enjoyed being there. It wasn't always an easy job, but it was very valuable. The school is also great about providing extra-curricular activities and bringing speakers on all different topics. One thing that makes Geneseo special is G.R.E.A.T. Day (Geneseo Recognizing Excellence, Achievement, and Talent), an academic conference held every spring. Student are able to present their research or creative projects to be shared with their peers and faculty across the school, and it was an excellent learning experience. Housing at Geneseo is good and steadily improving. Some residence halls are better than others, but they are working on refurbishing some of the oldest ones. It's the perfect school for people who like a quieter atmosphere in town. And you really can't beat the view."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Geneseo. At first, I was doubtful as to whether or not I would enjoy my experience. I had given up the opportunity to go to my dream school to attend Geneseo. Although the college itself is small, and the surrounding area not very lively, the students at the school are what make it worthwhile. Everyone is incredibly friendly and open, and you will find that many students, while extremely driven and talented, are also incredibly humble. What the town lacks in activities, the school makes up for in well thought-out weekend events and many, many extracurricular opportunities. Additionally, the classes are top-notch–I have never had an academic professor I disliked, and felt as though all my classes challenged me to a sufficient extent. The professors are open and very helpful, and for the most part, I never had trouble staying awake in class. The Geneseo community as a whole-students, professors, and the like–are truly exceptional, and I would not have chosen any other school to attend."

"I had a great experience and would do it again. My younger sister is going there as well in the Fall, and I could not be more delighted. I am fond of all of the memories, and friends I made during my time at Geneseo."
