Rankings & Reviews

    SUNY Oneonta consistently gains recognition for delivering excellence and value. The college sits at No. 9 on the 2016 U.S. News and World Report list of the best public institutions in the region and has been named to the Kiplinger's Personal Finance list of "100 Best Values in Public Colleges" for 10 years running.

    Beyond campus, Oneonta is known for its safe, friendly, small-town atmosphere, beautiful setting and genuine sense of community. In 2015, Oneonta was included in a list of America’s “Best Small Town Colleges” and ranked No. 14 on the Matador Network’s 2015 list of the “20 Coolest Towns in the U.S.

    Here’s a sampling of what college guides have to say about Oneonta:  

    Talented, accomplished professors
    “Passionate students will find numerous chances to indulge their ambition and can major in virtually any traditional field, as well as unique subjects like Africana and Latino Studies, Human Ecology, Meteorology, and Gerontology. Despite being a public institution, graduate assistants don’t teach any classes, which means students get to spend more time with the talented, accomplished professors who will inspire them toward greater learning. You can also join student organizations spanning from Accounting to the Zombie Defense Corps!”

    Beautiful setting
    "
    Oneonta manages to have an identity beyond just being a college town. The town puts a big emphasis on sustainability -- both environmental and economic -- and is in an absolutely beautiful setting in the Catskill Mountains. Amazing food, a progressive, sustainably minded populace, a yearly hot air balloon festival, and nearby access to some of the best ski mountains in the Catskills. Nuff said."
    —Matador Network

    Modern campus
    "The campus is beautiful and modern. The classrooms and freshman buildings are newly renovated and include many amenities like full kitchens and recreational rooms. My residence hall even has a gym in it."
    —CollegeProwler.com

    Safe, friendly small-town atmosphere
    “The beautiful campus, nestled in the foothills of the Catskills in Central New York, offers a peaceful and scenic setting for study as well as self-discovery. The city of Oneonta rests in the valley below the campus and offers beautiful views, changing foliage and boundless natural beauty. Halfway between Albany and Binghamton, Oneonta offers students a safe, friendly small-town atmosphere with a very sincere sense of community."

    The #1 online nutrition program in the country
    “SUNY Oneonta’s M.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics stands out from the other programs on this nutritionist online degree ranking for one very distinct reason. While other graduate programs only admit registered dieticians, this degree program accepts applicants of all educational backgrounds. In fact, this three-semester curriculum qualifies students to take the national RD examination after they graduate, if they so desire. And although online learners can earn their degree in just 12 months, it won’t be an easy journey. The combined Nutrition/Dietetics coursework mandates 36-credit hours of regular classes plus a 1220-hour supervised internship."
