I am a graduate of Binghamton University. I had nothing but positive experiences there.
The university, which is high on the list for academics, is also a place for lots of fun and amazing experiences. Not only did I learn a ton that properly prepared me for the "real world", but I met my husband there and a ton of friends who I am still in touch with. Many say that a good academic school is limiting in outside experiences (friendships, fun extracurricular activities, etc) but not Binghamton. I would recommend it to anyone! Definitely apply!!!
