SUNY Cortland

Cortland, NYwww2.cortland.edu
Sports dominate the culture at the State University of New York at Cortland. Students decked out in the school colors of red and black turn out en masse to support the Red Dragons teams during Division III games, and the town's streets, lawns, and bars fill up early for the annual "Cortaca" football game, a match-up with longtime rival Ithaca. All together, SUNY Cortland's athletic program has garnered about two dozen national team titles. Of course, students at Cortland find time for academics, too. The school has one of the top education departments in the SUNY system, and, not surprisingly, fitness-related majors such as kinesiology, parks and recreation are also popular. About half of undergraduates live on campus. The college town of Cortland can feel isolated, especially during the winter months, when three-foot snow drifts often line the streets. Fortunately, students craving more action can find it in Syracuse just 45 minutes up the road.
