I enjoyed studying at SUNY Cortland, from the first day I stepped into the college until the day of my graduation. I never visited before going to Cortland, so I had my doubts especially when I was told at the embassy that SUNY Cortland was a renown party school. However, when I got here, I found that Cortland was a conducive environment for studying. Yes there are tons of parties to attend every weekend, but if you are also a bookworm like I was, you would find that Cortland also had loads of study areas where you would not be distracted. In my department, I was welcomed and taught equally as my peers who were fully American. My name of course drew lots of attention but people warm up to you easily. The social life is top notch. If you're looking for a social, mental or religious group to be a part of, SUNY Cortland has just the right number of clubs and extracurricular activities. I even was opportune to be a founder of one of the currently thriving student clubs at SUNY Cortand. In addition, the international office provides us international students with lots of opportunities to get to travel around NEW YORK STATE. From time to time the international office organized trips to new york city for sightseeing and Broadway shows on discount. Another thing I loved about SUNY Cortland was that although there weren't many international scholarships, there still are opportunities for international students to get funding. There are also opportunities for international students to work and earn money, especially if one needs to boost their finances. I have a lot more to say about SUNY Cortland but I think this gives a good brief description of my time there. I would definitely recommend SUNY Cortland to any international students looking to gain solid educational knowledge as well as have an adventurous and fun experience while studying abroad. show less

I am returning school to get a degree of Psychology in addition to my other graduate degrees from top universities, and I can confidently recommend SUNY Cortland Psychology Department to you if you are into serious studying. The professors takes teaching and students very serious and they are always very supportive and helpful if you ask for help! That's to say you won't pass if you don't give effort. However, I do observe a lot of fun activities with diversity around the campus, students are very friendly and most of them study really hard. I also found many in-campus talks and mini-lectures very interesting, I attended some of them and learned a great deal from them. You will always received many activities notices from emails and can join freely. The international students office is very helpful, too. They organized many local activities to help international students adopt the new environment. I really like this university. Being honestly, I am very surprised to find the school ranking is not high because the professors' ranking is low, my experience is they are super good and capable to help, and the materials they provided are valuable. Their lecture is effective and some of them are fun! The teachers encourage students to ask questions and they take the questions seriously and want to give their best knowledge to you. I took a semester first and decide to continue to finish my degree here because the quality of their teaching here. I do learn a great deal from them and never want to miss a class. I don't know a lot about other majors, but I strongly recommend SUNY Cortland Psychology Department to you. show less
