Is a parking pass required on campus?
Syracuse University
Hi Afia! Typically, first year students are not permitted to have cars on campus - we are in the city of Syracuse so parking is limited! As a sophomore and beyond you can bring a car but would need to purchase a parking pass and will be assigned to a specific parking lot. You do not need a car on campus, however! We have easy access to campus shuttle system, the Syracuse city bus system and Uber/Lyft! Campus is also very walkable!

WHAT I LIKED

Syracuse University has given me everything I could have ever wanted and more in a college experience. I recommend Syracuse University to anyone who asks because of the relationships I've created with friends and professors, the unparalleled experiences I've had, and the spirit of being Orange!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It gets cold! I wasn't really aware of how cold it got, but being in Upstate New York, it makes sense!

WHAT I LIKED

Syracuse University is a place where everyone can be celebrated, and that encourages all students to succeed, no matter their background or future interests. There are an incredible amount of resources and faculty that are able to help students succeed. While academics are a high priority, the school also offers a variety of extracurricular opportunities to foster a well-rounded community of engaged and creative students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

At such a large school, taking initiative is important. There are amazing experiences everywhere, but you have to do the work to find them yourself. Learning to self-advocate is incredibly important if you don't want to get lost in the masses. But the more you put yourself out there, an overwhelming number of opportunities will come to you!

WHAT I LIKED

Very nice campus. Syracuse is a small city so there are some things to do, especially events-wise through the university itself. Great hands-on film program.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The university could work on making better food, as well as having more options available. Also could work on more funding for certain programs such as VPA.

WHAT I LIKED

There are many majors to choose from, great professors, and a great opportunity for a buzzing social life if you know where to look. Many buildings have been renovated since my freshman year, so there are a lot more places to gather and do work and it was pretty easy to transfer majors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

One thing I wish I would have considered was the food, the campus itself, and the weather. The food is quite bland and the restaurants on and off campus can get pretty repetitive. I also underestimated how much the hills were going to annoy me on any given day. The campus is beautiful no doubt, but I'm not always in the mood to walk up incredibly steep hills in a blizzard when I'm going to class. Additionally, I don't think I quite understood what Syracuse's weather was like and how many times you're gonna be walking to class going against strong winds and persistent snow.

WHAT I LIKED

Syracuse offers many resources to help you get the best out of your undergraduate career.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is no air conditioning in most residence halls, so in the summer it is very hot. Dining hall food is also sometimes repetitive so you will not want to eat the same food every day.
