"I was looking online at different colleges and funny enough, I came across a YouTube video for SUNY Adirondack. It was about the new residence hall, and one of the students said something that stuck with me, 'This school means something.' I had to come visit. When my parents and I drove up, we got here at like 9 or 10 o'clock at night, and I knew the second we drove onto the campus that this was the right fit for me.

Living in the residence hall has been a learning experience. Campus Safety is such a great asset to have right in the building 24/7.

They are always there if you need them. I frequently forget my keys, we kind of have a routine and joke about it now. I have a work study job in the art studio, I work there on the weekends making sure all the supplies are available and clean but I almost always need Campus Safety to unlock the doors for me. They are really great guys.

I'm a Business major. Professor Dave Matthews is incredible. He brings years of experience and real life business issues into the classroom. His stories are so eye-opening and I look up to him so much. I want to become as successful of a businessman as he is."
