Why SUNY Oneonta

As I was looking at schools, I found that many schools were lacking community, but the students at Oneonta seemed to be very welcoming. The community here really stuck with me as I was touring campus and talking to different students and professors. It just seemed to be the right place for me - a good fit.

Best Experiences

I really, really enjoy the professors and the interaction between the students and community here. Every experience I’ve had has been really positive. Coming in with the mindset to get involved early as a freshman and sophomore and step out of your comfort zone is really important. I really pushed myself to join new clubs, and that led to more than I could have ever imagined. The community here is really great.

Plans, Goals, Dreams

I’m thinking about getting into financial services or something along those lines. No matter what I end up doing after graduation, I think I’ll be ready for it. I’ve been exposed to a lot of different things here, some I never thought I’d be doing. I’ll be ready for wherever the world takes me.
