5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime is limited here, and there are University Police stationed on campus who patrol 24/7 and enforce the rules. If a student is ever in danger on campus UP is called immediately by a Residential staff member and if need be the on campus ambulance system will also arrive for assistance.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, the courses are taught well and professors provide accessible office hours and are willing to work with the students in order for them to do well in class. The class sizes vary depending on the course and the demand for the course. I have been in a class with 8 students and a class with 410 students. The variety of courses is very wide and I'm sure most students can find at least one course that interests them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In my degree the student career prospects are boundless. The professors work to secure job opportunities and internships opportunities for students and hold events that bring future employees to the campus in order for students to get recognized and further their careers. There is also a center for career development on campus that provides students with the resources needed to obtain jobs and internships in their respective fields.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a good experience for every new college student. The dorms on campus are like most average dorm rooms, there are rooms that house anywhere from 1-6 residents per room. Certain buildings only permit upperclassmen and one building on campus only allows freshmen to reside there. The social atmosphere in each dorm is different from the rest but overall it's a positive social atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is treated mostly indifferently at the school. However, most students don't agree with the procedures that occur during pledging so hazing does not happen at the school, at least not to public knowledge. The Greek life is less than 10% of the students, yet they are seen everywhere wearing their letters. The Greek housing is mostly off campus, and then students in fraternities or sororities who do not want to live in the Greek houses can live on campus with no issues.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit at the school for the athletics is high for the hockey team but otherwise I don't observe much athletic student involvement. I personally am not involved in athletics so I don't know how the facilities are and I don't know the teams performances.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I enjoy my experience at school so far because it has helped me grow as an individual and provided me with many opportunities to expand my professional knowledge, real world experience, and has provided me with the opportunity to meet many new people with different experiences I can learn about and learn from.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really haven't had problems with any professors. Some can be tough, but if you try they're using really accommodating. There is a ton of classes to choose from! Some are much easier than others, but there are quite a few classes you can take for an easy A. When picking classes, you can see exactly how many students are in a class, so if you need to be in a smaller class thats no problem! There are plenty of lectures and smaller classes to chose from.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Although my dorm building definitely does have its negatives, I do love living on campus. The RAs are very at ease and there isn't any feeling like you need to watch yourself or else you're getting written up. Yes you need to follow the rules, but it's honestly very relaxed.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love Greek life at Oswego. Although it's not huge, it's still a big part of campus life. Almost all of my friends are in an organization, and if they aren't, they're on a sports team. No one in Greek life looks down on those who aren't apart of it, and those who aren't in Greek life really don't think negatively of those who are. Also a lot of the Greek orgs. on campus are in involved in charity work.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really involve myself with athletics, so I can't really give an accurate review. A lot of people play on our sports teams, but they're not a huge part of our college experience. Nobody really goes to the games that often from what I know, besides hockey. We're only a D-3 school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Oswego. Some of the professors are difficult either with grading or just their tests, but overall most of the professors I've had so far have been terrible. I've actually liked most of them. The food is alright, but greek life and nightlife make up for it. On top of that, the lake and views from the dorms are beautiful. I wouldn't want to go to any other school.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: Honestly, if I had literally any other choice I would probably chose it. The quality of education I am receiving is poor at best. The information is outdated and useless, I am just going through the motions so that I can get through the requirements to get my certification. I am pursuing professional development opportunities outside of this that are much more beneficial.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I do not attend classes on campus so I have no idea about this portion of the school. My entire program is offered online or at one of the satellite locations and is not offered on campus so this is not something that I am able to experience. I'm sure it is adequate though.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Overall, health and safety is pretty good on campus and security is strict with keeping the students safe

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The overall quality of Oswego is great. I would highly recommend attending as an incoming freshman

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are very good ways to connect with alumni to get job opportunities, especially Al Roker!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus housing both on and off campus are very convenient for students

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority and it was one of the best decisions I made!

4 College Junior

Athletics: School spirit on campus is great and all the students support the athletes. Some of the facilities could be re done

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: What makes my school so unique is the students and professors because they are so accepting and welcoming. SUNY Oswego offers numerous opportunities to get involved in on campus which is awesome. I love it!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I never heard any crazy stories about drugs being used on campus, obviously they are out there floating around but honestly I feel like most students don't do any hard drugs such as Cocaine or Heroin.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety wise the campus is very important to Oswego. They have UP driving around the campus at all times and they make sure everyone has their number on speed dial in case of an emergency. If anything is going on with the campus then they send out alerts to warn everyone of what is going on, I have never felt unsafe or threatened here.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was very hesitant about coming to this school at first, with it being so far away from home and it felt sort of like a safety school money wise for me. I just couldn't afford any of the private schools that I was accepted to. Once I was settled in and I made my friends and got into the role of things I realized this was the best decision i've ever made. The professors here really care about you and everyone here is looking to have a good time. I couldn't picture myself anywhere, whenever I leave for breaks I'm just counting down the days till I go back!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know going into a psychology or human development was risky because I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get a job after college. After talking to my advisor she calmed my nerves saying that they make sure I have a job when I get out of college and they'll set me up with different internships.
