I just came from visiting the school and the current students there say that the city is boring but the school has so much activities and events that people from other colleges come to Binghamton University for the events.
In the winter the city life is pretty quiet except for Greek parties but once the spring comes the Zoo is back open along with Double A Baseball games.

If you are looking for a big-city atmosphere, you are not going to find it at Binghamton. "Economically depressed" is a term often associated with Binghamton, and "campus-centered" is an accurate description of many students' lifestyles. Students advise that one shouldn’t wander around certain areas of Binghamton, particularly at night. While the city does offer a smattering of cultural events, a small mall, and two minor league sports teams, finding something to do besides bars, billiards, and bowling will often require some hunting. The outdoors type of person will find that there is much to see and do around Binghamton, including everything from hiking and biking to skiing during the winter.
There is not much to say about a place when a trip to Walmart can be considered a night on the town. People who enjoy outdoor activities will enjoy what Binghamton has to offer far more than those who need the bright lights and vibrant street life of a city. No matter what activities you prefer, if you are willing to make a one-hour drive—about the time it takes to get to Syracuse, Ithaca, Cortland, and Scranton—you will find that your options increase dramatically.
