If you are considering SUNY Oswego, just know that you will find your niche. This campus offers a unique and wide variety of extracurricular, student organizations and student employment opportunities.

It is a great place to fully live the 'college' experience. The campus is full of events and organizations to participate in, so most time spent is on campus rather than off-campus. Since the town is small, and there are so many residence buildings, it is easy to make connections, participate in events and actually live a full college experience.

Oswego quickly became my home away from home. Oswego offers a wide array of academic and extracurricular activities, there is something for everyone and the campus as a whole has a very welcoming atmosphere.

Keep an open mind! Oswego is full of amazing opportunities and the possibilities are endless. Definitely get involved as much as possible. It's so easy to become apart of something bigger than yourself!

At SUNY Oswego, we pride ourselves on being a campus committed to the welfare and safety of its students, faculty, staff and friends. At the heart of our efforts is the charge to all members of the community to work together to create a safe campus environment through education, collaboration, communication and community empowerment.
