Its fall everyone! That means Travel! Travel! Travel! Be sure to take a look at SUNY Plattsburgh Admissions travel schedule to see if we will be at a college fair near you. If so, don’t be nervous! Come right on by and we will take the time to answer any questions you have. What should you ask? Here are some topics that can be beneficial to you when trying to decide on a college.

  1. Students & Social Life: Moving from high school to college may be a big step, but it doesn’t have to be a scary one. Don’t be afraid to ask us any questions you may have about social life on campus! What are the dorms like? Is there much to do on campus? Are there clubs to get involved with? How is school spirit? How are the college’s sports teams? How’s the weather?
  2. Food & Meal Plans: Don’t forget to ask about food! You will be eating it for a while, so you may want to make sure you enjoy it. It may not be what mom used to make, but I’m sure you can find a suitable substitute.
  3. Campus Facilities: What can the campus offer me? Is there a Gym in close proximity to the dorm buildings? How far away will classes be? Is the computer lab up to date? You will be using these facilities while living on campus. Make sure they are what you had in mind.
  4. Academic Programs: Of course, you must go to a college that will benefit you and your studies. How do their programs look? Do any interest you? Or do you already know the program you want but can’t choose the best program? This is an important step in the college selection process. But don’t make this the only step in the process. The campus you choose is your home nine months out of the year. Make sure it’s what you had in mind.
  5. Off Campus: Lastly, ask about the community life. Your social life doesn’t exist only on campus. Is there shopping close by? Are there good places to eat? What is there to do off campus? Much like with academic programs, do not make this the core of your search process. Once you find a community with “potential” you can go out and discover your own fun things to do off campus!

It’s almost graduation time high school seniors! As you gear up for a new chapter of life, you may be feeling a bit… scared. Perhaps your feelings of excitement are clouded with nerves and fears. Let’s get these nerves squashed now, so you can breathe easy at SUNY Plattsburgh!

1. Am I Smart Enough? The college workload is different and a bit heavier than high school, but it is manageable. Take your time and focus on your class, but remember to balance your studies with a social life. Otherwise, you will lose a freshman 15 from stressing out!

2. Will my Roommate be Weird? Your roommate could become your best friend, classmate, mentor or just a … roommate. You may be paired up with someone you can’t stand and have to learn to live with them or change rooms. A roommate is only a roommate. If you decide to move out, it’s not a big deal at all.

3. Will I Make Friends? Yes. Lots. And lots.

4. Will I get Homesick? Everyone suffers from homesickness at some point. If you need to go home a weekend, do it. Just don’t get home a lot, or you won’t make Plattsburgh home too. Your family and high school friends are just a call/text/Snapchat/Facebook message/Tweet away!

5. Will I be safe? University police are on campus JUST to make you safe. If you feel uneasy walking back to your dorm from a night class, give them a call and they will escort you back. Your RA will also look out for you, and so will your floor mates.

6. Can I Change my Major? You have the freedom to study whatever you desire, and that is a beautiful thing! I changed my major two times before discovering the right career for me. You can change it five times, have three majors and four minors. This is the time to explore your interests, so start your journey now!

7. Will I Find a Job after Graduation? You WILL find a job after graduation. Some college graduates go off to graduate school, others find a job right away and others need more time.We promise that you will find the right job and path for you.
