Why SUNY Oneonta?

I came here and the scenery just immediately caught me. The mountains, the valleys, the views … it’s such a calm place, I knew I had to come here. Outside of that, I love the size of it because it’s big enough so that you don’t know everybody but small enough that you know people when you go outside. It’s the perfect balance of both.

My Activities

Volleyball intramural team, basketball intramural team

Best Experiences

I feel like every day is a different adventure. There’s so many things to do and people to see, every day there’s a new moment where I’m like, “Wow, this is great.”

Plans, Goals, Dreams

My dream job would be to be a CEO of a company. I can see myself making pitches, being in that corporate setting in a conference room and being a leader. It fits my personality.

Favorite Class

Learning About Music. It meets twice a week. We watch documentaries about music, whether it’s folk, jazz, blues. Or we’ll have a live performance, and then on Thursdays we’ll have a lecture learning about the styles of music. I took it just as a Gen Ed but I’m noticing I actually really enjoy it. It’s really interesting.
