I go to SBU's Hilbert program and IApr 25 2013Education
I go to SBU's Hilbert program and I really do enjoy it there a lot. The administration (both admissions and on campus) is like no other, they not only remember your name, but also who you are, what your goals are, and what, if any, assistance you need to achieve them. They really work hard for the students. The classes here are always insightful, and while challenging, are survivable. The professors have their occasional moments of arrogance but they really do care and try to help you when you ask for it, with honest constructive criticism and not just the ass-kissing and easy A's you get at the baccalaureate level. Some of the students can be a little snooty but mos everyone is very friendly and easy to get along with. SBU isn't perfect, but I don't regret my decision to attend here for a second. I've definitely gotten my money's worth. Go Bonnies!
Mar 16 2011Business - Management and Administration
Security Services gives out pointless tickets, professors complain about being underpaid constantly. Not a good environment.
My 5th year atSep 28 2010Communications
My 5th year at the school and I would do it all again if I had the opportunity. There is no big city close by, which is half the fun of it. The students bond over not having anywhere to go, which is a huge part of the reason there is such a tight alumni connection.
SBU will leave you wondering how it callsAug 01 2010Philosophy
SBU will leave you wondering how it calls itself Franciscan. I have been there for 5 years. There are many things to love and many to hate. Its really the administration that is the issue as it seems to live to satisfy and protect itself. But the professors and staff are helpful and work hard to ensure that while the students are being mistreated by administrators, they at least get a good education. And if you think about it, if you can get your undergrad and masters degrees in 5 years its worth the abuse, right?
