Favorite thing about SUNY Upstate:
All kinds of academic/career development workshops and service whic aim to build up a student to be part of the community.
Favorite thing about Syracuse or Central New York:
The nature scenery in Upstate New York is awesome! In Spring and Summer, there are a bunch of places you can go hiking within a day's driving. In the Winter, you can go outdoor ice skating in Clinton Square. It is also impressive to see the basketball or football games in the Carrier Dome. You never get bored living in syracuse.
