Maybe I'm biased because I went here, but I love UAlbany. The main construction is a massive concrete behemoth (the podium) surrounded by 4 other concrete behemoths (the 4 dorms) and then various other buildings (2 shiny ones in front: the Business Building and University Hall) and dormitories. If you have time, stop through for a UAlbany Football or Lacrosse game--we're finally getting our athletics off the ground!There are also always shows at the Performing Arts Centers and lots of visiting lecturers. And I haven't even mentioned the fountains yet! In the heart of campus, is a massive fountain that shoots water up almost 2 stories and has a spectacular lights setup at night. It's a great place to cool off (you're allowed in the fountain) and hang out any time of day. It is flanked by a fountain out front and a small fountain near Campus Center. Trust me, take some time to just walk around and reminisce about your glory days at school!
