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

Assistant Director of Residential Life at MIL Beijing Academy

Donglei Li

“I work with high school students from the United States who are trying to learn Chinese and also Chinese culture. 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). I am very excited about this job because of the interaction I have with the students who are studying abroad, just as I did at SUNY Oneonta, but in my hometown.”

Jamal Wiltshire '18

Enrolled in the New York Police Department auxiliary academy

“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, which will all be helpful in the NYPD academy. 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.”

The most important lesson for any aspiring songwriter is networking. You might meet someone in college who’s a freshman when you’re a senior, and that might end up being the most talented person you’ve ever met. I have a friend I graduated with who works at Columbia Records now, and we work together. Never count anybody out.
