SUNY Geneseo This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     Geneseo, NY: The first time I saw SUNY Geneseo was
when we dropped off my brother for his freshman year. It took us about six hours
to get there, and as we drove, I noticed the scenery changing from lots of
building to lots of land and farm animals.

Geneseo is located in rural
Upstate New York, near Rochester. When I first saw the campus, I was amazed by
its beauty. Geneseo overlooks the Genesee Valley, and it is quite a sight to

I helped my brother carry his belongings to his room. Everyone I
passed on campus was very friendly. I liked the atmosphere at Geneseo.

The next time I went was for family weekend. I got to see some
activities, including hockey games and swimming competitions. There are lots of
things to do on campus, with 164 organizations and 19 intercollegiate
sports teams for the 5,000 students (81 percent of whom were in the top 20
percent of their graduating class).

New York residents should budget about
$14,000 for a year at Geneseo, including tuition, room and board and all
miscellaneous expenses. Out-of-staters will pay another $5,000.

I also got
to experience college life during Siblings Weekend when I stayed in the dorm with
my brother. We had meals and hung out on campus. There were many activities
planned for this special weekend and I had a lot of fun.

I definitely
want to attend Geneseo. I would be very comfortable there. It would be the
perfect place for me.
