What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
You must have a huge love for hockey. SUNY Oswego's hockey team brings the whole school together for all the home games, and it is a huge event, which is free for current students at Oswego. Plus the hockey team is amazing!
Also, the main tip I can give you, be prepared for winter. You want to invest money into a good, warm, wind resistant jacket. Also splurge a little on some nice snow boots. You won't regret it.
Another thing, Oswego students are offered a debit card at the beginning of the year, and the card website makes it so easy for your parents to send money to you. It is usually avaliable next-day.

One of the most important pieces of advice is to do well. College is exciting, especially at SUNY Oswego, there is always something to do. Although that can be fun, it can also be distracting. Do you school work, and then have fun. If your grade at Oswego is too low you could get kicked out, so try to stay focused. Then be open-minded. This campus is so diverse, with so many people of different races, religions, and opinions.
Get involved in something you are seriously interested as early on in your college career as possible so you can move up within that club by your senior year!
Jessica from Bridgewater, NJ
The main tip I would have to give out would to be get active within the college. The more things that you involve yourself with, the bigger your family will be here.
Josh from Clay, NY
Get to know your professors. Introduce yourself after class and visit them. They will remember you and if they know your name it will help you in grades and contacts.

Look around the campus so that you know where you are. The first day I came here I immediately went to find where all my classes were. Do it before classes. You do not want to get lost trying to ifnd the building your class is in. There are a lot of buildings.

Make friends, join clubs, do community service, get a job. DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE!!! There are so many things you can do in your free-time, just pick one.
Desiree from Bronx, NY
The school is very secluded so try to make friends quick. Pick you're dorms wisely. Pack very deep. Bring lots of food. Always have a debit card ready for quick withdrawals. Most importantly, do not be intimidated by anyone. Everyone won't like you but the ones that do, stick with them. oh yeah STUDY very very hard.
Castelli from Jamaica , NY
Definitely bring a long warm coat! The winter here gets pretty windy so bundle up!
Aiyana from Bronx, NY
Have an open mind as pupils
Be interdependent among academic staff and tutors
Be persistent and organized and you will find your path
Marta from Oswego, NY
One of the biggest pain in the butts at this school is scheduling. So, when registration time rolls around, make sure to be on top of your game and meeting with your advisor to make sure you are getting into the right classes. Also, NEVER sign up for a class without looking up the professor at ratemyprofessor.com. And finally, live on west campus if you're trying to party!
Christopher from Center Moriches, NY
-Enroll in the Honors program if you can.
-Make sure you sit with new people at the dining halls the first couple of weeks- everyone is outgoing at this time.
-Go to the counseling center if you're homesick or have any other huge problems- they are professional, effective, and very nice.
-West Campus is more of a party center as far as the dorms go. Lakeside dorms are beautiful. Central has ease of geting to classes, but the buildings are older.
-GO TO CLASS. Don't skip all your classes- it isn't worth it and you will get on academic probation.
-Meet your professors during their posted office hours. They won't bite, and it will make the class more interesting and possiblly help you out if it's the difference between a B and a B+.
