Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012

Syracuse University is a great institution that provides lots of resources for it students to succeed. Most TA's and professors are very approachable and welcome students into their office hours. The academics can be challenging, however it pushes students to perform to the best of their abilities. Syracuse University is a place where students can find a healthy balance between their social and academic life, as both are important to achieving overall success.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

Syracuse University's online MBA program is the best way for me to earn an MBA from a prestigious school, while still having the opportunity to serve my country in the military. I am able to attend weekly interactive classes taught by actual professors from the Whitman School. The disadvantage is not being on campus, but the school does a great job providing a forum to network with other students.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Great program with good people and fantastic faculty. Syracuse can get rough as a city, but it's actually not that bad when you get used to it-- plus you're only there for a year, which is a definite perk. It's affordable and the school gives lots of scholarships too, so this is the best school to go to if you don't want to be TOO far in debt.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I think this program is fantastic for any public administration student - the professors are wonderful and SO invested in the success of their students, and the professional network is pretty unbeatable. They don't call it the Maxwell Mafia for nothing. I will say that the trend in course offerings seems to be moving away from domestic social policy research, which I think is a shame. If you're an IR student, or interested in security studies / development this will be a great program. Other than some issues with My Slice (very frustrating at times during registration) everything administrative with the program has been smooth sailing. All in all - awesome value.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2017

The Newhouse School of Public Communications' Online MS Degree in Communications is extremely convenient for those who want to pursue a graduate degree but have a full time job. The professors are always available for help and the classes are engaging and fun. Taking classes online took some getting used to and while I would prefer to be in a physical classroom, it is extremely convenient to be able to attend class from my work or home.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

There are numerous pros and cons to this degree program, none more compelling than the incredible alumni network. Which is surely part of the reason this is ranked as number one in the nation. Due to the status of the program I feel it has some obvious drawbacks, such as financial aid. It is number one, it can charge what it wants. Additionally, I have often felt that I am one in quite a large pool of my peers and as such individual treatment and help can be hard to come by. That being said, the cohort you develop really helps to abate the aforementioned statement. On campus safety is relatively good but step one foot too far into certain areas nearby you will find yourself in a sticky situation. Overall, this program is extremely prestigious and surely worth every penny and all-nighter needed to collect this degree.
