What is special about Binghamton
What I'll remember most about my experience at Binghamton University is the relationships I developed with the faculty and my colleagues in the history department. My professors and committee members served as educators, mentors, professional advocates, motivators (when I needed to be pushed), and friends (when I needed support). My fellow graduate students and other members of the department, meanwhile, provided a welcoming community in which to float ideas, celebrate accomplishments, commiserate when necessary, and of course, to share a few pitchers at wing night.
