What a student says about the Study Abroad Program

Brandon, an Iraq war veteran, was one of the first Brockport students to study abroad in Antarctica.

Brandon Nunnery ’13,

Major: Finance; Hometown: Lyndonville, NY

As part of an extraordinary study abroad trip through Brockport’s Office of International Education, Brandon and a handful of intrepid travelers visited the wilds of the Antarctic landscape during WinterSession ’11. “Honestly, I had always dreamed of going to Antarctica, ever since I was a kid,” he says. “I never figured that I would be able to go so early in my life.”

What he says about Brockport…

“I like the sense of community at Brockport. It is a very welcoming school and the student population is very open. It also offers a scholarly form of networking.”


Home away from home Finding a campus with a healthy mix of individuals, cultures and ideologies is just as important as classes themselves. Students at The College at Brockport are active participants in one or more of 115+ clubs and organizations, student government, Living Learning Communities, Greek life, and career-building networks. While many college students are known to miss home-cooked meals, don’t worry. Brockport’s dining halls are highly rated across SUNY. With dining services in nine comfortable and convenient locations across campus, you can grab a burger and fries, choose vegan and vegetarian entrees, opt for healthy meals and satisfy your sweet tooth — in a dining hall, café or on the go.

And for students who want to lead a healthy lifestyle, resources to support a sound mind, body and spirit are available through the health center, counseling services, workout spaces and places of worship throughout the community.


Residential life A residence hall is more than just a place to sleep. It’s a place where students forge lifelong friendships by sharing joys, triumphs, and dreams. It’s the place to study and laugh, watch movies and just hang out. Resident students can choose either corridor-style living (shared common areas for all students on a floor) or suite-style living (shared common space among four students). Students with junior or senior status have the additional option of living in the College’s townhomes. These units come complete with a full kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms, and space for four students.

 ighty-nine percent of freshmen at E Brockport live on campus in one of 12 residence halls. Entering freshmen students can choose to live in one of our Living Learning Communities with others who share their academic interests. Choose from the following communities:

• Academic Exploration • The Brockport Global Village • Creative Artists • Future Health Professionals • Green House • Honors House • Leadership and Community Service • Math and Science • Recreation and Fitness • Teachers of Tomorrow
