This college is a no go.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
This college is a no go. It's falling apart, literally. The dome collapsed and has been siting on the ground deflated for months. The new caf they're building will have hardly any seating. There a gaping hole left in the middle of the residential side of campus from when they fixed a gas leak and never filled the hole. Campus security are rude as well as the RA's. The biggest problem? There's not enough housing for students. That's right, freshmen are left stranded and without a place to live their sophomore year. They won't help you find a place to live either. My advice, take ur tuition money elsewhere to a SUNY school, they're MUCH nicer.

Question
Utica college is primarily made up of studentsQuite BrightEducation
Utica college is primarily made up of students from NYC and the surrounding towns in Utica. These people can be friendly but for the most part, everyone is very cliquey and they don't hang out with people outside of their racial group. The social atmosphere is very much like high school all over again so if you thrived in that setting, and are from NYC or the surrounding towns of Utica, come here! If that doesn't sound like you, I would strongly suggest taking your money and going somewhere else.

Utica College builds itself up on it's sport teams and their successes but in reality, they are all awful. Their Women's and Men's hockey teams would be the only exception on a good year. UC will throw so much of their money at the sports teams and their programs but their teams have shown little improvement despite the amount of money they get. The new sports dome was only put up to attempt to draw in new athletes to better their teams, rather than putting in the effort to find decent coaching staff to get these athletes to improve.

The staff at Utica College is very friendly and welcoming but the professors at UC are not. Most of them could care less about the individual students and are rude and condescending to the students. A few of the professors are great though, and are genuinely interested in their topic they're teaching, however the chances of getting these professors are small as there aren't many of them.

The dorms are not great, most are falling apart in one way or another. The hotels that UC rents out and uses as dorms are in pretty run-down shape but at least you have a more private space and more control over things like heat.Utica College is far more expensive than what it is actually worth. If you are considering this college, be prepared for an underwhelming experience, despite what your college recruitment officials tell you.

Question
If from downstate NYBrightCriminal
If from downstate NY do not consider going to this school. You will be treated as an outsider and a second citizen. This school is all about appearances. There is zero substance below the surface.
