Why SUNY Oneonta?

I came for an Open House and kind of just loved campus immediately. I was also recruited by the softball coach, so I met the team and just knew it was the perfect fit for me. I came back a week after for my overnight, and that was it! I knew.

My Activities

Women’s softball team, Finance Club, Joe Heissan Leadership Academy

Best Experiences

One of my favorite experiences was freshman year, when the boys’ soccer team won SUNYACs and the whole school was at the game and everybody went wild after the last goal and the whole team came into the stands. The whole school celebrated all together, and that was one of my favorite moments here.

Plans, Goals, Dreams

I want to be an executive of a company. I kind of want to do advertising and media. I think I want to create and raise awareness for charities and just help as many people as I can.

About My Major

I like that all the professors are very understanding. If you ever have a problem, you can go right to them. They’re always available – even if they don’t have office hours, they’ll work with you. Also, Business Economics is such a broad field that there’s a lot of different things you can incorporate so it kind of leads to more opportunities for future employment. It’s a good background to have.

Favorite Class

I’d say Argumentation. The teacher was extremely engaged with us and it was fun to go up against your classmates and people you didn’t know. You got to know them on a different level but in a professional setting.
