    Pros

    Great Campus and great atmosphere. Everyone is usually happy to help each other with any questions. There are a lot of things you can do outside of campus as well.

    Cons

    The weather can be bad at times but it's the least of your worries if you are a commuter. Parking was simply a nightmare and it only will get worse with time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to focus on getting students more involved with the various campus improvement.

    Pros

    For engineering students in ME and IE, they are possible to get opportunities to work with the companies and built the skill set for future industrial work.

    Cons

    Sometimes the research funding is very dependent on the economic condition of the companies. Also the students have to balance the work and thesis.

    I worked at Binghamton University

    Pros

    The campus is a nice size and you get to know the people within the departments well, and it is a nice environment.

    Cons

    The campus can feel a little cold sometimes, figuratively, and a little segregated, but you just need to find your cluster of close friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider fairer pay structures for Graduate Assistants, and not customized deals, because everyone could use tuition stipends for the amount of work they are delivering.
