SUNY Oneonta is the perfect size—big enough to be exciting and small enough to be personal. We offer 60 majors and programs and 55 minors, each designed to prepare you to launch a successful career or continue your education in grad school. On campus, you’ll get the best of both academic worlds: small classes and personal attention, plus top-notch facilities, like our digital planetarium, professional TV studio and human anatomy lab. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn outside the classroom, too, whether it’s through an internship, one of more than 1000 study abroad programs or research with a faculty member.

To help you make a smooth transition to college, our First-Year Experience program offers fun activities, freshmen-only residence halls and lots of personal support. Our campus community is friendly and welcoming, and with more than 150 student organizations—from the Accounting Society to the Zombie Defense Corps—it’s easy to get involved.

We invite you to come for a visit to explore these opportunities firsthand, and if Oneonta seems like the right place for you, we look forward to working with you on your applicationConnect with us at any time along the way—we’re here to help!
