What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
SUNY Oswego is extremely far away from home, but I know that I definitely made the right choice. People here are extremely friendly, you just have to get to know them. The weather is beautiful and lakeside residence halls are just as great because of the view in the summer and spring.
I do caution those who consider coming here, like most other reviews, to invest in warm clothing and snow boots for the winter season. You will be ecstatic that you did, trust me.
I am currently a sophomore and a peer advisor on campus so the best thing to do when you come is get to know your professors, they will be helpful in so many ways. Also, move around campus and find all the buildings, this place is huge and there is so much to do.

Oswego is pretty strong academically, especially in the Schools of Business and Educations. It has a lively social life with a lot of campus events and tons of bars. Overall, it is a great party school where you can still get an education and enjoy the experience of being away from home.
