Why Oneonta?

Students choose SUNY Oneonta for lots of reasons: Our diverse and challenging curriculum. An academic environment where faculty members get to know their students, in and out of the classroom. Our beautiful and welcoming campus. But what really distinguishes us from other mid-sized colleges is our commitment to offering exceptional opportunities for learning, scholarship and service.

Whether it’s an internship in Washington D.C., a semester abroad or an original research project, students at SUNY Oneonta have outstanding opportunities for hands-on learning. It’s one of the reasons students excel here. Take, Diane Mancini, for example. As a freshman, she received a $1,500 grant to complete anthropology research on a Caribbean island. Then there is David Loveless, one of just 115 meteorology students across the country selected to receive a $16,000 Hollings Scholarship, which includes a 10-week paid summer internship at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.

Outside of academics, SUNY Oneonta students are actively engaged in community service — from charity walks on campus to service-learning missions on another continent. And with a vibrant student life scene — including hundreds of hours of entertainment, athletic events and social programming each semester and more than 100 student clubs and organizations — there are plenty of opportunities to have fun, make friends and find your niche.
