Poll: Why Students Choose Binghamton University

Posted by Steven Molinari on March 11, 2015

Have you heard?! Binghamton University is ranked as New York's top four-year public college by American City Business Journal (ACBJ). U.S. News even ranks us as one of their top 50 public universities. And to top it all off, the Wall Street Journal recently ranked us as one of the best public universities for returns on investment.

This made us wonder, what makes Binghamton University so great? We decided to ask students why they chose Binghamton.
