SU has a laundry list of good qualities about it and very few flaws. The main thing to remember is that SU and its students refuse to be pigeonholed. There are so many varying interests at Syracuse University, as well as a broad array of extracurricular activities. People can't even agree on what major is the most prestigious (although many claim communications or architecture). Still, although there is a broad range of people at SU, there usually is a consensus on one thing: people at Syracuse University really like it. Sure, there are different reasons, but almost everyone who spends a few years at SU enjoys it.
Some like the choices in classes, while others like the prominent sports teams on campus. Some like the appeal of a real college campus in the middle of a big city. No one comes for the weather. And besides the few reasons a student will specifically seek out Syracuse University, there are a broad number of factors that keep students here. The on-campus and off-campus housing is excellent, the computer facilities are top-notch, and the nightlife can be a major draw. Also, students generally have a lot of genuinely interesting events going on around campus. Whatever the reason, students who come to SU tend to stay here.
DPS (University Police) excels in keeping the school as drug-free as possible.
It's OK. House parties are your best bet to have fun.
I am a film major at Syracuse University, and the professors are no doubt, very well-versed and competent in the subject matter they are teaching. The workload is reasonable enough, and of course, depends on a professor-to-professor basis. I've had studio art instructors who gave overwhelming amounts of work where I pulled all-nighters for days on end, and others who gave a minimal amount of work. The facilities are pretty solid -- there's a good amount of computers in the basements, a solid B+W darkroom, Lightworks down the street, and a lot of sound and image equipment in the cage. Some of the stuff is ancient, some of it is brand new. You should do your research before borrowing anything from the facilities. Talk to the professors! Schmooze at art shows and events they invite you to. They'll love you forever if you do so.
There is a lot of diversity on the campus. Between clubs, religions, sexuality preferences, you are always welcomed. You never feel out of your place.
You will find any type of guys and girls at the school. The guys are very preppy and into sports and fraternities. Some of them are total idiots and others are very preppy yet smart. Whereas the girls are very jappy. Many of them say, "daddy this" or "daddy that" and get what they want. But there are some girls that are not as stuck up as the rest. But overall you can find whatever you are looking for.
