3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school has a lot of activities to participate in. It is all about finding a place to fit in there. The most unique thing about SUNY Oswego is it's campus. It is right on the lake, it is amazingly beautiful to watch the sunset over the lake. Lake effect snow is not fun.

Overall Experience: SUNY Oswego has a radio and TV station for Broadcasting majors to explore if that is what they truly want to do with their life! I went into Oswego thinking that I wanted to be a Zoologist, only to find out that my true passion was actually broadcasting. Being a part of the radio station at Oswego, called WNYO 88.9FM, has really proved to me that I made the right choice in switching my major and staying at SUNY Oswego.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are so many options, with no many dining halls and food places around campus

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have heard that there has been triples, which are 3 people sharing a room in tiny double rooms and i just dont think that is fair, well other than if they choose to do so

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: In each dining hall there is a variety of choices so if someone does not like what their dining hall offers they can simply go to another dining hall and get whatever they might want.

Health & Safety: The school does not inform students if there was another student sexually harassing people unless it gets leaked to the news paper or other media. It does not make me feel completely safe because you never know if you will be a victim. Sometimes the campus police will blame the victims that a person broke into their room because they left their door unlocked so thats why a person sexually assaulted them.

Greek Life: Greek life is awesome if you find a fraternity/sorority that you feel like you belong. Great way to make connections. Most Greeks have non-Greek friends and most do not treat anyone else differently.

Off-Campus Housing: So much cheaper than living on campus in the dorms. But the school basically does not help you at all. The selection is decent you just have to start looking for apartments in October for the next year because they fill up fast!

Party Scene: Almost something going on, but you should really join an organization or otherwise you will only really have open frat parties and the bars if you are of age.

Administration: Certain things the administration is not fair about and they could really lighten up about. Having to pay for a parking permit is very unfair and every other SUNY school does not make the students pay for a parking permit.

Scholarships: The financial aid does not want to help you at all and you have to constantly do form after form and it still never ends. They did and still do not give me enough financial aid and I know I could get a whole lot more for what my family makes annually.
