Your First-Year Experience (FYE) program is designed to support you during your transition from high school to college. FYE fosters participation and community development in co-curricular events such as our common read, where incoming first-year students read the same diversity-related book that is discussed in fall courses; guest lectures; large-scale programming events and FYE traditions. These events will happen in both virtual and in-person formats and are subject to all COVID policies.
Our FYE program involves both the residential and the programmatic; it is a true collaboration between Residence Life staff and Office of Student Success staff. All of our new students will have a Resident Assistant and a Dragon Guide to guide them in the transition to the SUNY Oneonta community.
All of our residence halls include:
- WiFi, Spectrum U streaming TV service, and telephone service at no additional cost;
- free laundry facilities in each residence hall, featuring “Laundry View” so you know when your washer or dryer has finished;
- recreational lounges;
- computer lab with printers;
- individual and group study space;
- fitness center; and
Gender-inclusive options are available upon request.
