It's nice if you like snow.. a lot of snow! There is a lake nearby which produces lake-effect snow so it's not always heavy, but it snows frequently.

There is one bar that is nearby to the school. However, it charges a cover fee and is often over-crowded. The other fun restaurants and bars are located about a 25-30 minute walk from campus but it's not the safest city so only go out when you're with a group.

It's a newer program so unfortunately we had to go by what the medical college was doing. It isn't that time off is important, but it would've been nice to know about it more than a week in advance. There are a lot of job opportunities out there but the faculty does not help to get any. It seems they are about making the program strong (or at least attempting to) but not helping students once graduation nears.

The professors say they're available but when they are emailed regarding an appointment, the emails often go unanswered. They have been seen sleeping while in their office which is embarrassing. The curriculum is not that difficult. It was more difficult preparing for schools then actually being in this one. Registration is easy and the workload is minimal to moderate depending on the time of year. Also, they may say there are tutors available but when the time comes to, they'll ask your own classmates to tutor you without leaving you any other options.

There are usually computers available in the library to use.

Drugs are not popular. This is a serious school for learning. If you do drugs you probably will not graduate. Drinking is an activity for those that choose to do so in moderation.

Guys & Girls:
I live one hour from my school. Guys dress much better at this school than at my hometown. Girls clothing is also improved. Style is better.

Health & Safety:
I feel very safe on campus. Sometimes I stay in the library till 11.00 p.m but I have never had any trouble going home. Besides, security people are always on hand to help.

The apartments that are close to the college are too expensive. But if you move further away from campus, say James Strett, then you can find affordable apartments in some good neighborhoods.

The winter in Syracuse is terrible but in my experience, heavy snow has never caused cancellation of classes. It can get annoying, but I won't complain because the semester ends early. We never have to make up for snow days.

Parking in the garage is way to expensive and if you chose the lots they are cheaper but be prepared to either walk or wait for the shuttle

The food is not that attractive or appetizing. Sometimes they have a chef cook a special but it can be expensive

The master's program for Nursing only default is that you have to find your own clinical site which can be a very frustrating process.

If you want to do mostly anything in the medical profession, Upstate is the school for you.

Health & Safety:
The campus is located right inside the hospital, so if anything were to happen you would be helped immediately

There are campus shuttles that come around, however they just changed the schedule so to arrive to a certain class on time, you have to take a shuttle about an hour early.

I applied for financial aid and all they gave me were huge amount of loans with interests rates higher than a home or a car. I am not sure how a college loan could have more interest rate, what a way to keep you in debt after you graduate

For the most part, it is always windy, cold and raining,

There are very few scholarships that apply to the nursing program and they aren't for very much
Recent Alumnus 2012-11-05T22:15:54Z
The campus is well maintained and the library staff is amazing. Not enough large classrooms available for the nursing classes

I don't think students have to pay for parking. We pay so much for tuition, I drive an hour to school and spend an incredible amount on gas and then to find parking and pay for parking is upsetting

I love this program! I do not have any concerns with finding a job, I feel SUNY upstate is such a highly rated academic program that it will help me land a job.

The process in getting into the program was fairly difficult, letters of recommendation and an average of 3.0 GPA was required and a long essay. It took them month to give me a response. Apply earlier didn't get me a quicker response like they said I will
Sorry, there are no reviews.
