27 Students rated SUNY College at Oswego
I really like it. It has a lot of organizations and clubs you can join and meet people who has similar interests as you. The professors are always available, either on their office hours or by email. The students are relative nice and friendly, so you can them questions either before or after class if you didn't understand something. For campus life, it really depends where you decide to live on campus; choose wisely.
My overall opinion of SUNY College at Oswego is that the university is not the best, but it's not the worst. I am looking into transferring colleges either my sophomore year or my junior year seeing as I'm not exactly as happy here as I thought I would be. The internet is consistently messing up and the dining hall food is horrid, however, the professors that I've been taught by are amazing. Overall, the university isn't terrible, but I expected more than I am receiving.
It's a really good college. There are a lot of great opportunities to join different clubs and partake in different activities. The food is the only thing I have to complain about that but other than that, the school really is great. The housing is comfortable and feels like home. The professors I've encountered really want to help students learn and succeed.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for SUNY College at Oswego is 54%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I gained a lot of studying skills, the ability to budget my time, and organize myself. I also broaded my social capabilities and became much more confident in social situations. I learned to cooperate with people from many different social backgrounds who value some things differently from the way I do. All of these skills are important out in the business world. You have to be able to cooperate with whoever you end up working with. In most cases, you don't get to choose your coworkers. Being tolerant of all cultures is important. Being able to budget your time well and stay organized is also very important. I also learned how to talk to clients and get the information I need to complete projects.
SUNY Oswego is a great school with great programs that will push you to be the best , professional you can be.
The students. They have a good spirit and seem to know who they are.
I think that there are not enough classes offered each semester to fulfill the requirements needed to graduate on time. There should be more variety and if a class is not going to be offered, there needs to be more communication within the school to let students know that they need to take this class during a certain semester because it might not be available for a time.
make the classes fun
I wish I had known that the vast majority of the students were near solely party-minded; I don't hold it against them but that's never been my idea of fun.
The upper classmen made me feel comfortable from my first day here. It made the transition from high school really easy.
Someone who doesn't want to have big lecture halls for freshman classes.
Any kinds of person from different background and person who is familiar with village living.
Our hockey team is the dominant sport here. They were 2007 Champs and just had a new facility added to campus focusing on the ice rink.
Most fustrating about Oswego might be he cold winters. It starts snowing about mid-October and does not quit till end of April. The snow is actually a lot of fun, and students sleigh-ride on cafateria lunch trays down the mountainious piles of snow. But, the extreme cold sometimes gets to you. Temperatures in February are usually below zero degrees, which make going to class difficult.
Academics at Oswego are pretty straight forward. It really depends on one's major and ability to focus in the classroom. As a business and graphic design student, I think if a student keeps a tight schedule and remains aware of their responsibilities, they should be fine.
When choosing professors, it is a good idea to get recommendations since some professors may not be as helpful as other or teach to your specific learning style.
I believe that Oswego is a great place to attend school if you are looking for a small college community. Although the campus space is large, SUNY Oswego is pretty small in population when compared to other schools across the United States. Oswego, as a town, is definitely a college town, many of the businesses here strive on our presence and are glad we are here to go to the bars, clubs, rent housing, and shop.
The best thing about Oswego is the ability to stand out. On a small campus it is not hard to make a name for yourself and really get to know faculty and staff. Although there are some large lecture classes, it is possible to become close with professors and really learn from their experiences and advice on your field of interest. When I tell people I attend SUNY Oswego, they usually have no clue what Oswego is, although this might seem negative it also allows you to set the bar. When meetings strangers, the way you carry yourself as an Oswego student can create a picture for the individual on what this campus is truly like.
I spend the most time in the classroom when I am on campus. Although there are opportunities to join clubs, it is also important to finish one's major to graduate on time when considering all of the General Education Courses. These might slow one down and make it difficult to build a strong GPA while graduating on time. Taking extra time in the classroom is important to academic success here.
Recent controversy on campus is limited parking. As we are expanding and building new parts of our campus, such as the science building, there are limited parking spots. This causes off-campus students to park there car a couple miles from campus and have shuttle buses bring them to and from their cars. This is a huge issue on campus that frustrated most students who commute or have their own apartments in town. As complaints have been submitted, there are no signs of change coming soon.
As experience I will always remember about Oswego is the ability to connect with our alumni. There are organizations such as the Future Alumni Network and the ASK Program which allow students to connect with alumni to create opportunity for their future careers.
Some common stereotypes about being a student at Oswego is that we may not have programs as strong as other competing schools. I find that this stereotype is very inaccurate, each department has its own Chair and faculty that devote their time to consistently improving the curriculum based on the job climate.
I also believe that it is assumed that Oswego students are not diverse. As the years go by, as a junior I have noticed the campus become more diverse based on students region of origin, ethnic background, and exposure to the United States and the world as a whole.
