Summer Field Courses on Three Continents

From zip lining through a South American forest to toasting marshmallows on the lava of an active volcano, SUNY Oneonta students had amazing experiences during international field courses this summer.

Profiles

Students
I love how friendly everyone is. Even if you're just at the dining hall, you could sit down and eat with anybody and they will befriend you. It’s not hard to make friends at all. My roommate and I met each other online through the class Facebook group, and we became really close.
Students
I chose Oneonta because the community and the students here seemed friendly. It seemed like a welcoming environment. They also had my major and it was far enough away from home, the Bronx, but close enough at the same time. The perfect distance.
Students
My top experience was probably the tropical field biology course in Peru with one of my professors, Dr. Florian Reyda. We learned about conservation of the rainforest in the Andes Mountains and did many hikes and learned about our surroundings, including a lot of the animals and plant species that are there. There were 16 other students who went, and they felt like family by the end.
Students
I chose Oneonta because when I took the tour it felt like home right away. Everybody just seemed to click with each other. I actually transferred here from a different institution I really didn't like. And then once I toured here I just really liked the overall feeling of this campus.
Students
I will remember a lot – joining Greek life, meeting new people, hanging out with my friends and the different opportunities that Oneonta has given me, like studying abroad in Greece. That was perfect.
Students
I had an incredible time studying abroad in Greece. That was life-changing: being a student there, living by myself, having to go to the market and get my own food instead of just having meals there for me. Honestly, it was really difficult at first. But then, after a week or so of classes, it really started to feel like I belonged there.
Students
Someday, I’d love to open a museum showcasing the history of women of color internationally. At the museums I’ve been to, men are the face of the story when it comes to these important political, economic or social problems and changes. Not a lot of people know a lot of the history when it comes to women and the women who were behind the scenes.
Students
I chose Oneonta because I definitely felt most at home here. I looked at many other colleges, and this was the one that definitely spoke to me. As soon as I came on the campus, I was like, ‘This is my home.’
Students
Growing up, I knew I wanted to work in the sports field. I just didn't know there was a major for it until I discovered it through a program I took in high school. I knew that Sport Management was for me mostly because of my passion for sports, but also because I saw a need for there to be more females in the field, so I wanted to make a difference in that way, too.
Students
My favorite class so far has probably been Intermediate Macroeconomics. I just really enjoy macroeconomics. And it was challenging, but I was able to figure it out. I did pretty well in it, and I really just loved all the concepts and loved the professor.
Students
My dream job is to be a statistician for pro sports. I love math and I love sports, so if I could couple those two things into a job that I get to do for the rest of my life? I’d love nothing more – that would be incredible!
Students
I love hands-on experiences and I love that I get so much of that with my major. Like, I get to learn not just by looking at the screen but also by being in lab, being able to touch things, being able to interact with my classmates and bounce ideas off of each other.
