There's really not anything bad I can say about SUNY Cortland, it's one of the best university to get a well rounded study abroad experience. I ended up staying at SUNY Cortland for 2 years and half, and I enjoyed most of my time there. From the students, to the facilities, to the professors, the room, the social life and even the food; all of which were exceptional. You wouldn't have trouble making friends as most of the students here are very welcoming, especially to international students. The social life is always "lit" and no night in Cortland is a dull one. There are always clubs, house parties or bars for you to have fun at night and makes some new friends in Cortland. If you're not into partying, there are always events set up by the international office where you travel and experience other parts of the USA and even Canada. The school also sets up events such as ice skating, bowling, movies, intramural sports, etc for you to have fun. If you're not into any of these activities, there is always a huge gym and soccer/basketball court for you to play in and get fit. There are so many clubs and organizations in which you can join and get to know people that have similar interests to you, I in fact was in two of them and through that, I got to know so many friends. I also love the food that Cortland has through its meal plan. I must have gone to the dining hall up to 3-4 times per day! There are so many variety of food and the dining hall opens till late at night. The campus is clean and feels like home, and there are always buses to take you to class if you don't want to walk, although the classes are super close to the dorms. Although I recommend staying in the dorms to get to know some fellow American student and be close to your classes, West Campus is not a bad option either, with a soccer field right next to your apartment. The professors are very helpful and understanding, and most of the classes in which i was in was small enough for my professor to know me personally. They are always open to help you, in fact, I got a few recommendations from them. If you ever need money like I did, to travel or to go out at night, the international office will help you find a job and create a temporary working visa for you. I got my working visa within the first week and ended up working at the dinning hall for a semester. Although the job wasn't the most fun one, I did get the money I needed, as well as the experience. The thing I liked the most about this school that I couldn't find anywhere else that I was at, is the exceptional quality and helpfulness of the international office. I must have came to the office at least once per week, with all my questions and favors and they are always there to help me in no time! I also love the events they set up, in which I ended up getting super close with all my fellow international students. Orientation week is a must, I got to know so many people and get so many of the things I needed to do off my chest. I 100% from the bottom of my heart recommend this program, I got to know so many people that became very close friends to me. In fact, a few of my friends help me after my knee surgery and let me stay at their home over the break. The quality of experience and friends you get here is incomparable! show less
Once a Red Dragon, Always a Red Dragon!
Doing my study abroad for a semester at SUNY Cortland was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I loved every minute I was there! The International Student Office made the transition into American college life very easy with a great support system, and organising a plethora of cultural and social events throughout the year. The professors and other staff are really friendly and helpful as well as other students being friendly and welcoming too. This made adjusting to a different learning environment much easier. Through the exchange program, I met lots of different people from all over the world who I have become life long friends with. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. show less
