No Better Place
With our small class sizes, friendly community, rigorous academic programs, top-rated arts environment, and a full range of applied learning opportunities, SUNY Potsdam is a great place to make your own path. Our campus is a little out of the way, but, honestly, we like it that way. Here in the shadow of the Adirondacks, it’s easy to get away from it all and focus on finding yourself.
Campus life is vibrant, and our students are crazy-involved. SUNY Potsdam has everything from brand-new laboratories, to award-winning theatres, to 17 different dining locations, plus a fully-stocked athletic complex to keep you busy. Just steps from the Quad are our residence halls, with everything from classic two-bed rooms, to townhouses with full kitchen suites. And you don’t have to go far for a change of scenery. SUNY Potsdam also has a park leading right up to the shores of the Raquette River, and our campus is just a short walk or bike ride away from historic downtown Potsdam.
