SUNY Oneonta students are well prepared for life after college. By the time they hit senior year, nearly three-fourths have been involved in at least two high-impact learning experiences—like studying abroad, doing research with a faculty member, participating in a service-learning project, or completing an internship. These powerful experiences will not only help you discover what you really want to do, they'll give you the tools to succeed—whether that means launching a fulfilling career, or continuing your education.

Donglei Li ’18

Donglei Li

“I’m applying what I learned at SUNY Oneonta to my position, from both inside classrooms (intercultural communication class, small group communication) and also outside classroom activities (Resident Community Advisor, Orientation Leader). My main responsibilities are working with student clubs and supporting them, as well as overseeing the Blue Oasis, a student community space."

Jamal Wiltshire '18

NYPD OFFICER

“I'm very excited and happy! And it's all thanks to the experience I got at Oneonta in criminal justice classes and clubs. The criminal justice program prepared me for the law enforcement field by giving me real-life experience through ridealongs with the Otsego County Deputy Sheriffs, in which I got to see the many types of interactions between officers and civilians. I also learned the different processes and steps in in how to arrest, process, arraign and book a suspected criminal. I even learned how to handle and deal with potential active shooter threats through the Oneonta Criminal Justice Club and Delhi Police Department, another great asset to my future career.”
