4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Oswego is an acquired taste. If you are in greek life (which isn't all that hard to get into, just be a cool person) you will love Oswego. If you are a person that likes to stay in you wont like it too much. the key to have fun and be well educated is to join clubs and/or greek life as well as to go to class. most important part go to class, I've seen way to many friends fail to balance that out.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Always a place to go if you need to relax and study

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is great. People on this say that Its terrible but that's because they either live in Johnson, don't drink, or didn't get a bid. Its great and a lot of fun.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Oswego is the best when it comes to parties

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: lots of hot girls, I don't like guys but I guess they are good to.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Great diversity. Hart hall is devoted to providing international students with a easy transition into college life in the states. Students off all ethnic backgrounds can be seen

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are always willing to help and courses aren't all that hard but i'm bias only going through two semesters.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have seen a lot of alumni and the school does a good jobs showing students and potential students that there are opprotunities to succeed

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I did not have a good experience with the professors at this school. I felt as if I was not being challenged at all and professors don't take students seriously.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't think it's an extremely respected school but I'm sure you'll get a job. There's recruiters from the Syracuse and Rochester areas.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: The business program is one of the biggest programs at the school. A lot of the professors I had were not very good, there was a lot of wasted time during class and I don't feel prepared for my future. I did not learn a lot in class and professors don't take students very seriously. Some professors aren't really that knowledgeable about what they should be teaching. The workload was far too easy.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: It's pretty easy to get into classes, don't expect to learn much from gen ed classes. Most professors aren't that knowledgeable and don't care how well you do.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never used the health center but some of my friends have and they've had positive experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was granted a presidential scholarship based on my grades in high school. Merit scholarships are easiest to get.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had classes that were a 20 minute walk from my dorm, which in the winter was unbearable. West campus is for people who only care about partying, and if you take your classes seriously you will be miserable there. I would choose east campus if I wasn't transferring. The only nice thing about the dorms is that most are connected to dining halls.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I was a business major here but I'm transferring. I found that a lot of professors weren't very knowledgable about their subjects and they didn't take their students very seriously. I thought the coursework was easier than it was in high school, which was a disappointment.

College Sophomore

Majors: I did not do an internship, but there seem to be a lot available around the Syracuse area.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Hockey is a huge part of the campus. The rink in the campus center is beautiful and a lot of people go to games.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: If you drink in the dorms you will probably get in trouble, but sometimes RA's are lenient. Lots of people smoke weed.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are parties going on every weekend. I found that most of the students care more about partying than anything else.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school is very diverse. There is a whole dorm dedicated to people coming from other countries.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I had the marks to get into my program. I did not experience any abnormalities, and it was a smooth process overall.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great experience. I love it. Party School, but also good academically.

Academics: Being a marketing major is very great. The curriculum is challenging, and but we have the resources to do well. All the professors are very approachable if you need anything. Even during Office Hours.
