That was when I realized how much I could help people and how much I wanted to help people.”

Colton Cox '15, English

“SUNY Oneonta has prepared me for post-graduate life in a lot of ways I hadn't expected. The college provided a lot of ways for students to gain experience in a variety of roles, both in and out of the classroom. I can tell interviewers that I've had extensive experience in editing and publishing and also in administration, public relations, marketing and team management.”


Annie Yoo '15, Biology and Chemistry
