How has Cortland changed you as a person?

I came in a s a transfer student from Syracuse University. I lived with SUNY Cortland in my backyard my whole life and never considered it as a school because it was so close to my home. After my first semester here I realized I underestimated this place. Cortland has taught me to be accountable and to work hard. It has showed me how much all the little things matter. it has showed me that support is necessary to achieve goals. It has also taught me not to be afraid to ask questions because someone is always willing answer.

Where is your favorite spot on campus?

I love the library. As someone who commutes to campus everyday, I need a place to be on my breaks. The library gives the perfect atmosphere to study and do homework between classes.
