| I was a dual major at the school (American Studies and Business Administration). Maybe things have changed in the Business program over the last two decades or so, but at the time, you were taught to be a cog in a machine instead of someone that could think about the big picture. The American Studies program (no longer exists) has provided me the tools that I use on a regular basis in gaining understanding of communities as an Urban Planner. One piece of advice...Do internships. If you don't, you will regret it later, especially if you don't come from a connected background or can rely on frat/sorority connections to get you in the door for the first job. |

| Attending SUNY Brockport was a waste of four years of my life as well as the financial aid opportunity costs that could have been better put to use at a non-SUNY college. It is important that one realizes that after four years in college, an individual's financial aid substantially and permanently decreases, and choosing the wrong college can easily cripple future opportunities for those who do not come from money.Nevertheless, I must admit that if you're in the market for a party college than SUNY Brockport is paradise for you, as long as you don't mind being harassed by police. However, if you're looking for an education, SUNY Brockport is absolutely not the place for you. Academics are clearly low on the administrations list of priorities. I was, unfortunately, an ignorant small-town boy looking for a good, affordable education and insipiently believed SUNY Brockport's lies about it's academic opportunities. If I could do it over again I would absolutely have chosen a different college. |

| The College at Brockport, is a school for drinkers, but for people like me who don't drink, b/c everyone else is so drunk, you can still have fun and dance w/ friends, drunkards & people who aren't drunk. Also, the parties are fun off campus. Brockport brings great musical artists and other performers such as comedians, poets , etc. But once it gets cold, everything calms down. There are boring days, but that's only if you choose to complain. On calm days, I enjoy being in my room and interacting w/ classmates in the dorm.|
If you are a minority, their is not many of us. But it is possible to love the school. Green and Gold run through my veins. Eagle Pride ! I suggest joining cultural clubs and learning about events.
Announcement for NYC kids: Brockport is not NYC, we don't live that life, it's country. Your warned ! Also, Rochester people and surrounding towns are not the ones w/ the accents. You guys are. But like 75% of the population is from NYC. You will have people to relate to.
The campus is nice, well kept, not extremely beautiful, but pleasant. The teachers are super friendly. But some of the older people who work in the health center are mean, and so are the old lunch ladies, Like its your fault they have the lives they do. Brockport is not Blue Moutain State. Don't expect an over the top experience. But you will enjoy, if you try. Also, Brockport town sucks and racist. But fortunately you won't feel racism on campus everyday.
