What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Get involved in activities. It's a great way to meet people that are interested in the same things you are. As a freshman, definitely live in a FYE (Freshman Year Experience) dorm! It's very comforting to know that everyone is new, and there is more of a chance to meet people in these dorms.
From Rockland County
Come and visit!! Get to know the campus, the students, and the staff!!
Chiara from Jefferson, NY
Oneonta is a very interesting town! There's almost every type of restaurant downtown, ranging from Chinese food to Greek to Italian! The Campus community is amazing and there is even a starbucks on campus! It's a wonderful school and I would definitely recommend SUNY Oneonta.
Joseph from Mount Sinai, NY
don't get lazy!
Sofia from Peekskill, NY
Don't be afraid if you don't pick your own roommate! The college does their best pairing you up with someone who you have things in common with. Don't be shy either, try to meet people in your dorm in case the rooming situation doesn't go so well.
Education Major
This goes for any college but I feel it is true, make sure to get a high GPA in your freshman year. Also, learn to manage your time and don't allow the party life to consume you. If you can do these things you are going to leave Oneonta with a nice degree and memories for a lifetime.
Jean from College Point, NY
If you’re interested in Oneonta, but you’re still not sure after reading this than I suggest that you go to the college and talk with some of the professors you will end up having. Look at the classes you would take and other opportunities in your department. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If the school is right for you, something will click.
Christopher from Wynantskill, NY
Any student considering Oneonta should absolutely visit the campus. During your venture to the valley, don't forget to check out the actual town itself. Downtown Oneonta is very quaint and says a lot about the townspeople here. Do not be afraid to ask questions on the tour, after all, you could possibly end up living here for multiple years of your life. Base your college choice on things that are important to you. Do you mind the unpredictable weather? Do they offer the major you are interested in? You should definitely check out where your future classes are located on campus, it will really help you realize whether or not you can picture yourself living and learning at this college.
Kara from Watertown, NY
Try to get into a First Year Experience dorm. That was how I was able to meet almost all of my friends!
