I’m a Freshman at Oneonta, and in the short time that I’ve been at Oneonta I’ve learned a whole lot. As a first in family minority student, I was reluctant to go to a big school not known to have a diverse student body. However, I’ve noticed the freshman student body is more diverse than I expected and the school is not as big as I thought. I see many of the people in my hall around campus. The class sizes are small 15-25 students. The city of Oneonta is cute and transportation to the mall and other main spots is easily accessible. The RA’s are always there to help me with anything big or small. The freshman dorms seem to be the newest! The food is okay, it’s not moms cooking but there’s a lot of selections and 3 main dining halls around campus. Professors have overall been very supportive and helpful. Overall my experience has been very good. There’s many clubs and organizations that can help one branch out and meet new people, College is what you make it!

They mostly accept people from long island. If you ask anyone where they are from, they will most likely say long island. There is barely any diversity on campus and lots of parties. The town is gorgeous and academic buildings are beautiful and maintained properly. The dorms are average and everyone hates the showers because it has curtains, not stall doors. The janitors are so kind and happy. This school is becoming more popular in sciences and everyone loves taking walks here. Its a nice place to be
I transferred from SUNY Geneseo to SUNY College at Oneonta and I feel much more fulfilled here, at Oneonta. The faculty and staff are helpful and welcoming. I have not experienced one truly bad professor. The buildings are (mostly) clean and well-kept. Our library is a phenomenal library, with a great silent floor as well as multiple working computer labs. If there are no computers in the library, there is almost always somewhere else that a computer can be found. The bus service is wonderful with the buses running every 15 minutes during the day, and every half an hour almost all night and it is great that students' ID cards function as bus passes.
