Rankings & Reviews

    SUNY Oneonta consistently gains recognition for delivering excellence and value. The college sits at No. 9 on the 2015 U.S. News and World Report list of the best public institutions in the region and has been named to the Kiplinger's list of "100 Best Values in Public Colleges" for nine years running.

    Here’s a sampling of what college guides, websites and accreditation bodies 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 Corp!”

    Beautiful 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

    One of the best graduate training programs in the nation
    “Oneonta has the largest optical telescope in New York State and one of the best graduate training programs for museum professionals in the nation. Oneonta students choose from 13 travel exchange programs in countries like Ghana, Ecuador and Sweden and have access to more than 600 other study abroad options offered through the SUNY network.”
    –Forbes

    Active and collaborative learning
    “SUNY Oneonta offers a variety of experiential learning opportunities to students, including internships, teaching assistantships, exchange and study abroad, independent research, and collaboration with faculty. Based on the 2011 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), seniors at SUNY Oneonta have a significantly higher mean score on ‘active and collaborative learning’ than peers. A majority (59%) of seniors in 2011 have participated in some form of experiential learning.”
