Exploring SUNY Oswego & What They Offer

SUNY Oswego stands for State University of New York located in Oswego, New York. For many, the place that first comes to mind when thinking of "New York" is New York City. SUNY Oswego is actually located about 5 hours northwest of New York City. SUNY has 64 campuses throughout the state of New York. Oswego is located in the upper northwest of the state and is lakeside with a city population of 18,000 people. The nearest airport will be about 45 minutes away – located in Syracuse, NY. Of the 8,000 students, there are about 200 international students from 40 different countries!

Academic Life

There is plenty for students to do while attending SUNY Oswego as this campus offers 200 clubs and organizations – even an international students' association, volunteering opportunities that relate to your hobbies, and more! There are 13 residence halls on campus and most international students will live in Hart Hall Global Living and Learning Community for at least their first or second year. Living in Hart Hall provides students with many opportunities to engage in varying programs and events going on to celebrate diversity. Oswego is 2.5 hours from Niagara Falls and 4 to 6 hours from NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, and Toronto which means there's plenty of opportunity awaiting! SUNY Oswego partners with over 1000 local, national, and international companies for students to work with for internships or co-ops.

SUNY Oswego specializes in programs pertaining to STEM, business, the arts, and communication. They offer 160 academic programs and have a 17:1 student to faculty ratio with 24 people being the average class size. This is all possible due to there being about 8,000 students total including bachelors and masters students.
