Profiles

Students
My best experiences have definitely been within the Communication and Media Department, either with WIRE TV or with professors. I actually got to do independent research with professor Jackie Bruscella, and she's one of my greatest mentors here. At the SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference, I was the only Communication major out of any of the SUNY schools. That was one of the moments where it just made me reflect on how much I love my major and my mentors. I call it my defining moment.
Students
The campus was perfect. It had this sense of community that I always wanted from the time I was in middle school. The first day I toured here, I was like, “This is the place I want to be.”
Students
I wanted to attend college since I was young, but was unsure about my future as a student who was the first in my family to attend college. After high school graduation, I would be more likely asked where I found a job than what college I was attending. I wanted more for myself—and working a job out of high school wasn’t going to pay for all that. I knew I needed an education that went beyond high school.
Students
When I looked up state schools that have TV stations, Oneonta was the first one that came up. I looked at images, and I applied right away. I saw the opportunity in the school, how many clubs there are and how people seem to be a family. I always heard great things about SUNY Oneonta, and just knowing that I walked in here as a transfer junior and am coming out of here as president of the TV station is a huge, huge thing. I love this school so much because of that.
Students
Psychology is the study of people, and I just find that so interesting. You get to learn about people from all different aspects and learn about brain development and how they think. When people think of psychology, they think of a person lying on a bed talking about their problems. But it's so much more than that, and it's so interesting to see in everyday life. I'm interning right now in the Office of New Student Services, and my research focus is freshman involvement and how to get freshmen involved, and it all comes back to psychology.
Students
One of my best experiences here was going to New Orleans as part of a Disaster Geographies field course with Dr. Wendy Lascell. We were housed in the Lower 9th ward, a low-income neighborhood still suffering from the damages of Hurricane Katrina. We got to listen to members of the community, research community restoration and look at social justice issues, help with wetland restoration, and experience the famous French Quarter.
Students
My dream job is to be a financial analyst -- looking at data and analyzing the company investments, future investments and forecasts of the economy. I want to spend the summer traveling and then go to Africa. And, after a few years of working, I would like to go to an MBA program.
Students
What will I remember in 20 years? Being SUNYAC champ in long jump, and all the friends I’ve made through the Oneonta State Emergency Squad and through my team, and through taking classes together. Honestly just the atmosphere here – everybody here is so nice, and the landscape is just amazing.
Students
I was an RA for a whole year in a freshman building, and it was so nice to meet people who were just so eclectic and be able to watch them grow throughout the year. I studied abroad in Greece for a semester. That was very eye-opening. And then being on the Women’s Rugby Team has been a huge part of my college career. It's given me all of my roommates and my best friends – lifelong friendships that I know aren’t going anywhere.
Students
I've met all my best friends in Oneonta. When I transferred, I literally dropped into this giant friend group. Music’s always been a big part of that. The music department here is next-level and they're really accommodating and professional. The Funk Band plays downtown at The Black Oak; you can’t get better experience than that.
Students
Definitely I will remember the trips and experiences I have had through the Earth and Atmospheric Science Department. This semester, I'm taking two four-hour field trips a week, along with ones on weekends. It’s amazing not only getting to go to these beautiful places and understand what's going on there, but getting to go with my best friends and professors that I've had now for four years has been really great, and it really makes it a fun, kind of family-trip experience.
Students
Attending the 2016 NCAA Annual Convention in Texas was an opportunity afforded me by Oneonta, and it really helped me at that time. I went down for their Student Immersion Program and got to sit in legislative meetings for the Big Ten Conference, and that was eye-opening for me. It’s something I really hold special because it gave me a peek into the realm of athletic administration and helped me realize that’s what I want to do.
