What is your most memorable experience from your first year at Brockport?
My most memorable experience as a first-year student at Brockport was attending the winter concert with my friends. We had a great time!
Why did you choose Brockport?
Coming from New York City, I wanted to experience a different atmosphere. I was also attracted to the academic programs offered by the school.
What is your favorite thing about Brockport?
My favorite thing about Brockport is the Student Learning Center. They provide a tutor for you when you need help in a course. The staff there takes down your schedule and pairs you up with an available tutor as soon as possible.
What is your favorite class at Brockport?
So far, all of the courses I have taken for my Criminal Justice major have interested me the most.
What advice would you give to incoming freshmen?
The transition into college from high school may seem a bit nerve wrecking, but as soon as you get the hang of things everything will be ok. After a few days, you’ll become accustomed to class schedules and also realize that it may not be as bad as you thought.
What advice would you give to incoming transfer students?
Never be afraid to ask for any assistance or guidance. For example, even if it’s just to become more familiar with getting around campus. The students here are friendly and are willing to help.
What is one thing students should never leave at home when packing for college?
If you feel that you may be homesick, definitely have pictures of your family members and friends. Also, being that it can get pretty cold up here; NEVER leave your winter jacket. Pack it first!
