One of the worst college campus for a SUNY school. SUNY Canton is located a stone throw away from the Canadian border in a town that has nearly nothing. Since we're in a NEW YORK school, the college has decided to change their logo to a Kangaroo without asking the students for their imput! (Thanks global warming!)
With a mandatory housing policy unless you still live with your parents, live in the area, or are over the age of 25, the school tries to make you stay and eat their mixtures that are laced with laxatives and made in Chaney.
In the dorms you'll find trash in various places (the stairwells were a favorite)...and don't dare touch the railings...they are always sticky. The dorm rooms are small and only have two skinny windows, that don't let in much light. You can't control the heat in the dorms, therefore it is always really hot or really cold. It seems like there was never an in between. The windows are always clouded with condensation stuck in between them, so you could hardly ever even see out of them. In the winter the windows would freeze over, and you wouldn't be able to see out of them. The walls were also so thin that you could always hear what was going on in the next room. Also, the walls on the sides of the buildings slant in wards (therefore if your on the third floor you have the smallest room), and because of this you'd also get sound traveling up and down the walls from your neighbors downstairs.
To get to classes you will have to walk up a trechorous hill (which is always icy, wet, and or muddy) which will give you asthma attacks, and make you feel like you needed your mountain climbing gear.
Also, if you have a problem find someone else to talk to besides your RA or RD, because all they do is get together and discuss/gossip about all the students problems.
If you're deciding to go to SUNY Canton, it isn't half bad if you just live off campus.
That's MY SUNY Canton!
