A-List Ranking
Something that sets SUNY Cobleskill College of Agriculture and Technology apart from other larger schools is its small-school mentality. The undergraduates currently number 2,619. This is not a negative aspect of the school, but a positive one! The small classes offer more of the one-on-one help that so many students need in order to succeed. SUNY Cobleskill is committed to providing students with this relational aspect of going to class where the professor is more than simply the person standing at the front of the room. They provide more of a hands-on approach through their courses that is not often seen at the college level.
