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.

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!

SUNY Oswego is changing so much. They are putting so much emphasis on their STEM (Chiefly Comp Sci, Biochem and Bio programs) and Business departments. It shows so much. The people here are all really nice, just trying to get the degree. The campus is beautiful and everything is getting remodeled. Its not really a party school anymore, moreso Bars downtown. The classes are really good... teachers all come from Ivy League or High Private Universities. I love the food, its amazing. Just make sure you live on east/lakeside campus. Its much nicer and the dorms are like hotels (Waterbury, Now Scales, Riggs). Go here!!! I reccomend! Everyone is helpful, and you will enjoy it!!!
