"What I enjoy most about Syracuse, NY is its location. If I drive 5 minutes in one direction, I'm in the middle of downtown. If I drive 10 minutes in the opposite direction, I can be at a cider mill, or at a state park, or Onondaga Lake. It's perfect. There's an environment and a vibe for everyone and every day, depending on what you're up for. I am never at a loss for something fun to do when I find some free time." - Sarah K. 3L
