3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The rules are more like suggestions.. pretty easy to maneuver around anything that seems too uptight.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Bring a car if you can.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Very good professors available in Communication field.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Noticeable separation of races by group of friends. Not from pressure, just coincidental.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Lots of drug problems on and off campus, manageable.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Super cheap if you look hard enough.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Awful WIFI, needs more printing options.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Generally safe, when there's an issue it's addressed.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Pretty much what you would expect. Punishments for underage drinking can be severe.

1 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Bring your own car if you can. The buses take forever.

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Not having wireless in every building is pretty poor. Other than that, it's ok.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Do not live in Hart Hall, no social atmosphere. The buildings are mostly old and decaying. For the price you pay, living on campus is a rip off.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Very good facilities for such a small school. Solid academic reputation.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Oswego is a cheap place to live. Renters should be wary of deadbeat landlords and the condition of some apartments.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Very good campus health center. The police can be a bit heavy handed, but they serve a purpose and it's good that they are there.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: The campus does pretty well in terms of diversity. Lots of African-American students and quite a few gay/lesbian students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: A mixed bag. Not much in the way of ethnic cuisines, but there are quite a few options for cheap food.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I haven't done an internship. I would've liked to.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: The job market is tough for everyone, particularly those of us that didn't go to extremely prestigious schools like this one. It's not really any fault of the school.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Very good support for the men's hockey team, which is by far the most popular varsity team. Other sports have some following, although it is easily dwarfed by the men's hockey team.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: SUNY Oswego has a pretty decent mix of students with different interests and looks. There is a bit of a divide between Upstate and Downstate students though.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: This campus has average strictness. Police can be a bit heavy handed when it comes to speeding and other violations, but generally they are easy to get a long with.

College Junior

Transportation: I own my own car.

College Junior

Drug Safety: Not noticeable unless you're in it.

2 College Junior

Weather: The school never cancels due to weather.
