Hands-on learning is a crucial part of the SUNY Oneonta experience. In fact, by the time they hit senior year, nearly three-fourths of our students have been involved in at least two experiential-learning experiences—things like domestic and international internships, part-time employment, job shadowing, service-learning volunteer opportunities, research and creative collaborations with faculty, study abroad, and leadership programs.
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.
Experiential Learning Center
A brand new Experiential Learning Center (ELC) opened this semester in the Hunt College Union, creating a bright, open space where students can learn about many of the hands-on learning experiences they can have at Oneonta.
The Career Development Center, Center for Social Responsibility and Community, Office of Global Education, and Student Research and Creative Activity office all are located in the first-floor ELC space, with the Office of Sustainability on the second floor.
