The dining hall food is great compared to other schools.

We have a massive amount of student run clubs so its easy to be part of something on campus.

The FYE Buildings are incredible! Big rooms, nice bathrooms, great accommodations (kitchens and gyms)

The classes are difficult, but not to the point of "kill me now" difficult. I ts easy to manage your academics and social life if you know how.

The atmosphere is very friendly, and very creative. Its a great place if you love music or art, and there are always concerts put on by the Music Industry Club. I f you don't love music or art, there's so many other things to do.

SUNY Oneonta is located in rural Central New York. The local area is not wealthy, but is relatively safe. Although the campus is trying to change their reputation, SUNY Oneonta is a "party school." Parties are open every weekend for students who want to drink, and there are several bars frequented by students of drinking age. The school has a Division III athletics program. There is no football team, but soccer is taken seriously at the school. With a meal plan, the campus dining halls offer a wide variety of options for food. Academically, the school is not very challenging, but the classes are on the smaller side, making it easier to connect with faculty. Many students on campus are involved in student activities. Although a degree from this school looks good, it's hard to find a job in the immediate Oneonta, NY area. Overall, this is a great school.

The FYE (First Year Experience) Resident Halls are the best! The rooms are spacious, there are kitchens and gyms and they're just overall nice. The other res halls have smaller rooms but they're also not too bad. Not many res halls have elevators, which is good because you can't be lazy and take the elevator everyday. But if you live on the 3rd floor of a building, you have to carry all of your things upstairs on move-in day.
