What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
If you attend Oswego not only will you get an amazing in class experience, but outside the classroom you will have the time of your life. If I could go back and start college again, at Oswego, I would in a heartbeat. It will change who you are as a person for nothing but the better.
Josh from Clay, NY
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.
