"I couldn't have asked for a better academic experience than the one I received as a philosophy major at Brockport. I consistently felt both challenged and supported by the department's knowledgeable and accessible faculty, which was exactly what I needed to grow as a writer, critical thinker, and person. As a grad student going for my PhD in philosophy, I frequently find myself thinking about how grateful I am for the quality preparation I received for graduate work during my time at Brockport."

Mark Satta, PhD Student, Purdue
