Student Testimonials

Here’s what some of our students have said about their honors program experience (and we didn’t pay them anything to say these things!):

Hannah Kubsch

  • Hometown: Red Hook NY
  • High School: Red Hook High School
  • Major: Biology

Hannah describes her personality as curious, ambitious, self-sufficient, and outgoing. So far, her favorite experiences at SUNY Plattsburgh are an evolution class and a trip to Montreal through student services. “The seminars provided by the honors program are really great at giving a different view on topics you might not have really thought about or had that much information on.

“I was surprised at how open people on campus are. Everyone is really friendly and happy to be here. Also, I could not imagine living without flip flops. Seriously, don’t forget them!”


Gisette Paez

  • Hometown: Manhattan, NY
  • Sophomore
  • Criminal justice major

“I like the diverse courses and the small class size the honors program offers. I love the Honors Center lounge. I come here all the time to study.”


Nicholas Schumacher

  • Hometown: Macedon, NY
  • Junior
  • Dual major in entrepreneurship & business administration

“The Honors Seminars allow me to study and learn in an environment where conversation and variety are encouraged for understanding different points of view.”


Adam Saccardi

  • Hometown:  East Setauket, NY
  • Class of 2016
  • Triple majors: history, political science and economics

“The honors program has offered me opportunities I couldn’t have found anywhere else on campus.  The classes allowed for engaging discussion on a variety of topics that we as students directed. The small classes were also a unique opportunity to get to know your professors really well, and I know I’ve become good friends with all of my seminar professors.”
