3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It really depends on what dorm you're able to get into. Riggs and Johnson offer the best in the way in room size and up-to-date amenities. While the Mackin Complex and west campus tend to have the worst possible set up and small rooms, however they are closer to the bus stops and tend to have more of a "party atmosphere". Funnelle and Hart are the center of campus and are the closest to all the academic buildings. The Village offers the best set-up with large rooms and town house feel with less regulations and restrictions.

Ease of housing process is very poor for all buildings

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Do not move off campus. Awful houses in sketchy parts of Oswego. Buses are awful and run at awful times.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Oswego is a party school. Lots of Frats in sketchy houses, lots of dorm room parties, village parties and bars. Thursday is Mug Night at the bars. You can party and keep up with school work. Frat parties are mostly full of freshmen, get a fake and enjoy the bar scene.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of pizza shops and some awful Chinese take outs

3 College Junior

Administration: The cops don't really care. They only really ticket people for speeding and parking. Most classes take attendance and will affect your GPA if you miss a certain amount of class. Other than that its decent.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The office workers are wonderful and will try to help any way they can

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining halls try to offer food for everyone, but it's low quality food that tends to be stale or burnt by the time you get it. The best place to eat would be Lakeside or Pathfinder. You can also use dining dollars to order food off campus for delivery but those are only available after 7pm.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The pros to living off-campus is that you don't have to pay for a meal plan which saves you a couple thousand dollars. I'm pretty sure that is how much it is. The cons are that you have to buy your own food and cook it as well, which in my opinion is a pain and less convenient.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't been to any parties around campus or off-campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The best place to get good Chinese food is at Hong Kong. This semester the students received a discount card to almost every restaurant in town. The cost, I would say is very reasonable.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't seen much in the way that policies are affecting the students. The Administration just passed a new policy that prevents students from smoking on the campus grounds. However, I have yet to actually see them enforce this policy. Every time I walked to class someone was smoking.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I don't really have any tips on financial aid through the FAFSA. I do encourage everyone to fill out for as many scholarships as possible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I would say that the food in the dining halls is actually pretty good depending on what you like. If you like extremely healthy options then this is not the best choice. However, each dining hall does have a salad bar which is excellent.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I find that living on the SUNY Oswego campus is the best options for anyone enrolled at SUNY Oswego. The staff of workers keeps the grounds clean and snow free during the winter months. The dorm rooms are excellent along with the entirety of the dorm. I am in Hart Hall and it is amazing here, we have an excellent view of the lake from our lounge. The housing process was smooth and relatively simple, I stayed in the same room in the same building. I just needed to go online pay my deposit and select the option to stay in the same room. The atmosphere in Hart is very nice, everyone gets along. Hart is the international dorm, so students from the the states can come here and meet people from other cultures.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Slum lords and old unsafe, unmaintaned houses
