    I am loving every minute of it. The learning communities in the dorms are very helpful, you meet so many new people that all share the love for the environment, the professors are great, and employers will be impressed at your resume just for going to this college.

    ESF can often be a very homogeneous area, with people being very similar in their lifestyles, beliefs, and interests, and this can be difficult for people that do not share these similarities. However, the more you get to know people, the more you will enjoy college life at ESF. The students here are interesting, friendly, and energetic. There is always a support system for you to fall back on with Student Life, the tutoring center, other offices, and student organizations. You will never be bored here if you talk to people and actively participate in in on and off campus life. The campus is also right next to SU, and you can take advantage of their gyms, the Carrier Dome for college games, Thornden Park, Oakwood Cemetery, and the ever-popular attractions on Westcott St.

  • I am a past student here

    I personally was not happy at the college. I felt out of place, didn't make friends, and almost felt duped into attending the college when I was told it had a great pre-vet program. While my professors were willing to help me the best they could, administrative faculty were incooperative and rude many times when I had questions. My second semester I needed tutors for three of my classes and the Academic Support Center was no help in finding me tutors. Due to schedule conflicts I was unable to get help from my professors or TA's and pretty much fell behind in every class.
