When I saw Oswego it reminded me of a continuation of HS. They try new recipes with their food and it is not bad but it is not great. I have found mold on my grapes on several occasions. Sometimes I just opt for an easy meal like bagels because I do not like the meals. Yet one of the dining halls has ice cream every day so that is great. Every professor I had cared for their students. They have turned difficult classes into manageable ones because they want to see you do good. However, make sure you put in the effort.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware of the food! Also if you are a minority, the town people are racist.



I liked that the school gave me the ability to figure out what I wanted to do with life. The counselors really help you figure out your passions and the steps you should take to reach them.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I can't think of anything i don't like about it you just have to make the best of it.

The location on the lake is amazing. It makes the whole campus feel very open. The art department is relatively small, so you are bound to become close with your classmates and build those bonds.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

One thing I don’t like about this school is how any of its websites or online platforms are run. They are very non-user friendly and often are outdated and don’t work.

The community is great if you like to party! Academic workload really depends on your major, but it’s definitely possible to balance academics and social life. The food is pretty bad, but the town is nice and fun to spend time around. Dorms are very mid, if you can try to get one of the newer ones (soo worth it)

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Dining halls are pretty bad, and hours can be strange sometimes. The buildings are kind of shoddy, but some of them are nice, so overall a typical Sunday school.



I like that SUNY College at Oswego has activities for everyone on campus. There are always new activities and programs going on.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It gets really cold in the winter.
