Why SUNY Oneonta?

One of my teachers in high school went here and she talks so highly about the school. She was such a great person, and I admired her so much that I applied here as my No. 1 school, and I accepted my acceptance letter before I even visited. I came here on Accepted Students Day, and I just felt so at home the second I drove onto campus.

Best Experiences

Meeting everyone I’ve met and going to so many different classes and having all the opportunities I’ve gotten here. There isn’t anything I would change about my experience. This is definitely the school for me.

What I’ll Remember in 20 Years

I love telling the story of meeting my freshman-year roommate. We still live together now, and we have our first apartment together. When I first met her, it was over Facebook. We never met until our first night. … and we live together three years later! Our friendship is one of the best things I’ve gotten out of school so far. I hope that the memories of living in the dorms stick with me.

Plans, Goals, Dreams

I want to be a school psychologist. I worked with children one summer, and it just showed me how much children benefit from people who want to be in their lives and see them grow. I think improving the lives of other people, especially children – who are so impressionable – is so important.
