Profiles

Students
My ideal job is anything in the theater or media world. I definitely want to look into directing and editing. My biggest dream would probably be working on a TV or movie set, either working behind the scenes or onstage – I love both realms. I want to be in that environment.
Students
I want to be a middle school Spanish teacher, probably like eighth grade. It’s a good age where you can interact with them and they can start to form their own opinions and add substance to a conversation. It’s really when they dive into language and start learning about why it’s so important to learn other languages and how it can connect people.
Students
I chose Oneonta because of the program that they had. When I was looking at other schools, they would usually focus on one specific area of art. I liked Oneonta’s curriculum because it’s not just one specific type of art, there’s also art history and other parts of art I never thought I’d ever explore, like artists’ books.
Students
My favorite class so far is Public Speaking. I love my professor, Stacy Branigan. She’s professional but motherly and makes it lively. She gives criticism back, but it’s always constructive so I don’t feel intimidated. It’s a great learning experience for me, and I’m seeing myself grow and progress over time.
Students
My best experiences so far have definitely been just hanging out with the friends I’ve met in my dorm. Everyone in my hallway, we all get together, hang out, go out to lunch together and go into town as a group. It’s just great being a part of a community, whether we’re in the dorm room spending time with neighbors or volunteering at an event with friends.
Students
My favorite classes so far have been Gender, Power & Difference with Dr. Kachwala or Race, Gender, Class and Culture with Dr. Ashford. I loved these classes because we were really able to have discussions. I think you learn more when you hear the other people in your class talking. It’s more life skills, being knowledgeable and being able to explain how you feel. It’s really important to be able to explain yourself and where you’re coming from.
Students
I like how my major is very broad. I could work online or work for a restaurant or even a company that sends meals to your house. You can do so many things with it. I just want to educate people on how they can live healthier lives and increase their longevity through their diet and exercise.
Students
My dream job would be to be a CEO of a company. I can see myself making pitches, being in that corporate setting in a conference room and being a leader. It fits my personality.
Students
The professors all have connections and experience in the industry so it’s teaching me a lot – hands-on and referring me to actual people who work in the business and can help me. Dr. Pignato is my favorite. His classes are really helpful.
Students
My career goal is to be part of a marketing team for some major corporation in New York City. I would love to be able to live outside of New York and commute in. A true dream job would be to be a voice actor for Disney. I did the Disney College Program my junior year, and that was a blast. I would love to work with Pixar, creating different voices for characters.
Students
I like that all the professors are very understanding. If you ever have a problem, you can go right to them. They’re always available – even if they don’t have office hours, they’ll work with you. Also, Business Economics is such a broad field that there’s a lot of different things you can incorporate so it kind of leads to more opportunities for future employment. It’s a good background to have.
Students
A lot of my best experiences have been through my department and through the Student Fashion Society. I’ve designed for two student fashion shows and been a model in two. My first line was based off of Halsey’s album, “Badlands.” My second year, I had pieces that were made out of magazines and colored pencils! I also work in my department and get to have more of a one-on-one relationship with my professors, which has been helpful.
