SUNY College at Geneseo

Geneseo, NYwww.geneseo.edu/
This college in western New York offers a campus environment and education that brings to mind a prestigious Northeast liberal arts school. The difference? As the name implies, the State University of New York at Geneseo is a public college with a price tag to match. Geneseo was founded as a school for teachers, and its education program is still among the strongest of about 40 degree programs on offer for the university's 5,500 students. Biology is another popular major, and the college is one of the country's top producers of bachelor's degrees in physics. All students are required to take a slate of core courses focused on the sciences, humanities, and foreign language proficiency. The school is also home to about 100 graduate students, who study in its accouting program or one of its various educational certification tracks. Among the college's highlights is the Geneseo Opportunities for Leadership Development program, which hosts 400 workshops throughout the academic year and awards certificates to students who complete various types of leadership training and volunteer service. Students say the best spot on campus is the gazebo overlooking the Genesee Valley, especially at sunset. The Seuss Spruce, a beloved tree with flowing branches that look like they sprouted from the hand of Dr. Seuss himself, is another cherished campus destination. When students aren't gazing at the sunset or arboreal splendor, they participate in over 200 student groups, among them a variety of fraternities and sororities.
