Why SUNY Oneonta
I chose SUNY Oneonta because, when I visited campus, I felt this sense of community right away. I actually visited four times to decide. I received a scholarship, as well, so getting a great education at an affordable price was important to me. Ultimately, I fell in love with my academic departments. Coming to school here was the best decision I’ve ever made.

Being a theatre major, every show I've worked on has been a great experience. I'm getting real experience for after I graduate and am having a blast with it.
What I’ll Remember in 20 Years
In 20 years, I’ll remember all of the opportunities SUNY Oneonta gave me during my time as a student and also how much of a community our school is. Entering in as a freshman, I had no idea that in just a short period of time I would earn two bachelor's degrees, complete five internships (all of which I obtained either through the college or through a connection of the college), work on over 20 plus productions (several of which were faculty-directed shows), create and build everlasting relationships and friendships with my peers, faulty, and staff, and have a concrete foundation for the next step.
It’s amazing and I am super grateful for my time at SUNY Oneonta. What’s important to remember for students is that we are not a number here, we are definitely a name and a person of which the Red Dragon community wants you to succeed.
