Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

I am receiving a very affordable education and the cost of living in the area is quite affordable. I feel safe in the area, transportation options are plentiful. The instructors are professionals who have worked in the field for years and share their expertise. Only con- wish class size was smaller!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Learning how to help people in most efficient way is the most benefit of the program. The cons is that you need to work very hard for this program. Each semester has an internship. I think you need to work much harder compared to other programs

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I earned my MS in the 1980s when the program was just developing. It is now considered one of the best programs in the country at an affordable price. Research is highly prized and there are many opportunities to complete this to meet degree requirements. Faculty encourage and support students as they work towards degree completion. They also have an active career development center and alumni support. Many students get jobs after completing a BU degree.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The Student Affairs Administration program has a wonderful faculty. All of the professors are very well accomplished and knowledgeable. The attitude of peers is the most disappointing part of the program. People seem to use this program as a "Plan B" when their other options don't work out. Because of this, many students don't take the program seriously, don't put in a sufficient amount of effort, and don't contribute to a collaborative intellectual atmosphere.

The university overall, is great. The financial aid office is okay. My program is fair. I do not feel that this college is any better than others.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

The instructors are well educated and have a passion for the field that is passed down to the students. The school, however, does not treat graduate students well. We are not informed of university events in a timely manner. The facilities are good.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The CCPA campus needs to be more integrated as it is currently separated from the main campus. This takes away from the social life and culture that is available on the main campus and ostracizes the Grad students in these programs from the rest of the Binghamton Unversity students. All in all, Binghamton University is a wonderful school, especially the education a student receives at the cost/price.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The peer competitiveness is healthy and beneficial here-- I didn't feel at all like my own career, academic standing, or education was adversely affected by negative competition. In our program at least, it is a healthy level-- competition that drives you to do well, but with a good balance of genuine peer bonding and feedback to help you self-improve, rather than feel like you need to prove yourself or "beat" someone else. Cons: No funding for MA students at all. Very little for PhDs-- only a few funded slots open in any given year.

Pros : Excellent Campus with best Transportation Facility and Faculty are always willing to help on anything . Course Curricullum is good and gives a chance to cover all the aspects of Computer Science. Diversity is good . Cons : Manadatory Courses can increase the workload sometimes and Leaves with very less option to study other courses as desired .
