Quite simply, Binghamton University students are remarkable. They arrive smart and leave poised to make a difference.
As a student body, individually and in national competitions, our students consistently excel.

A freshman-to-sophomore retention rate consistently above 90 percent attests to the University's record for creating an invigorating living-and-learning culture that draws the best scholars.
