    There's never a dull moment when living on campus. With so many people around and so much to do, it is easy to keep yourself entertained. At the same time it's also easy to have time to yourself in dorm rooms or in the library.

    I absolutely love it here at Oz. The students are friendly, the faculty members are very committed to giving you their best, and the campus is just beautiful. Watching the sun set over the lake is a useful stress reliever. It's the best view at any New York college, I can guarantee that.

    I love it at Oswego, granted it receives a lot of snow and there is usually a constant breeze. One major benefit is that it is right on the shores of Lake Ontario and has amazingly beautiful sunsets! There are also plenty of amazing family-run restaurants near campus, that are delicious!

    NO. The college has been going down hill for years. The school has been relaxing it requirement to get in, making more money from students. As a result I saw an increase in people failing out, drinking more and violence. Yes Oswego is getting more violent. The school has been trying to kick out the frats for years. As a result more things have gone underground. Harder drugs, more drinking and more fighting.
