Why SUNY Plattsburgh?
"I like the family-oriented campus and the small-town feel that has big-city amenities."
"When I was playing with my junior college team against Clinton Community College at Chip Cummings Field, I got some time to tour the campus here and just loved the atmosphere. I asked my coach to put in a good word to Kris Doorey (head baseball coach of the Cardinals) because I really wanted to pursue my education at Plattsburgh. There's always things to do and stay occupied on campus and around town."
"The classes are challenging, and my professors are excellent."
"I want to stay in the U.S. and study actuarial science, which is the calculation of risk to help develop insurance policies."
