Once a laker, always a laker. This school has taught me so much. Practically live in Shineman as a STEM major, and the building is amazing! Nothing is better than getting out of a late class and walking home or to the lake to watch the sunset. Residence life and housing are the best people to talk to and work for! Plenty of different organizations to get involved in. Great school!
Review SUNY Oswego
Oswego is a great affordable state school. The professors are really helpful and nice. The campus is beautiful although the winters here are horrible. The dorms are really nice and the food is good too. Overall, its a really good school and a nice town if you love partying!
The school is filled with people who have good intentions and class room sizes are not often very big. However, in my experience they do not often accommodate the students who do not have cars and the transportation system and locals seems to not to want to have anything to do with the students. There are not many appealing options for living off campus and some landlords often take advantage. In terms of Academics, I have no complaints. The best people I've met there were the professors. The knowledge I have gain there is priceless and irreplaceable and I think that's what matters.
