Why Oneonta?

Students choose SUNY Oneonta for lots of reasons. Our diverse and challenging curriculum.An academic environment where faculty members get to know their students, in and out of the classroom.Our beautiful and welcoming campus.But what really distinguishes us from other mid-sized colleges is our commitment to offering exceptional opportunities for learning, scholarship and service.

Whether it’s an internship in Washington D.C., a semester abroad or an original research project, students at SUNY Oneonta have outstanding opportunities for hands-on learning. It’s one of the reasons students excel here. Take Michelle Linder, for example. As the first undergraduate student to ever receive the Joseph Breen Memorial Fellowship from the American Chemical Society, she will travel to the 2012 American Chemical Society annual meeting in San Diego. Then there’s Alexander Soroka, who conducted research at an ecological site in New Hampshire after being selected to participate in a highly competitive summer research program sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

In 2011, four SUNY Oneonta students received the Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence. Dozens more of our “Best and Brightest” students are recognized on campus each semester for their academic achievement, engagement in campus life and outstanding service to the college or community.

Whether it’s a charity walk on campus, flood cleanup in a neighboring community or a service-learning mission on another continent, SUNY Oneonta students are actively engaged in service opportunities.  And with a vibrant student life scene — including hundreds of hours of entertainment, athletic events and social programming each semester and nearly 100 student clubs and organizations — there are plenty of opportunities to have fun, make friends and find your niche.

"Oneonta not only gives you the opportunity to grow academically and professionally, but Oneonta also allows you to create a new family,” says senior Cat Meyers. “During my time here, I have made friends that I know I will keep for the rest of my life, and that in itself is a wonderful feeling."
