Education & Experience

“ I love the connection we make with our students.”

 

“ I can go to any of my professors for help.”

MAKE YOUR EDUCATION A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.


At Oneonta, our low student-faculty ratio (just 19:1) means that if you have a question, you can ask it, and if you need help, you can get it. It also means at some point, a professor who knows you and believes in you is going to tell you about an educational or career opportunity you didn’t know existed. It’s all about INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION.

“ Studying in Japan changed me. It made me see the world through
a different lens.”

 

ANNA ZAJAC,
PROFESSIONAL
ACCOUNTING
MAJOR, SPENT
A YEAR IN
FUKOKA, JAPAN.

EXPLORE NEW BOUNDARIES— IN THE CLASSROOM AND IN YOUR LIFE.


Take a course like Tropical Field Biology in Peru or travel to another continent on your own. Either way, the rewards of STUDYING ABROAD are extraordinary—from having a fascinating learning experience to gaining a new perspective on the world. More than 600 study abroad opportunities are available, along with grant support to help defray travel costs.

“ The same state-of-the-art setup professionals use.”

 

AMY MAXWELL, ASPIRING AUDIO ENGINEER.

 

 

THE AUDIO PRODUCTION STUDIO—USED BY CLASSES AND GROUPS LIKE THE SONGWRITERS CLUB.

LEARN PRACTICAL, REAL-WORLD SKILLS.


If you are a business major, manage a simulated stock portfolio. If you’re a future teacher, get into the classroom early with a “mini student teaching” experience. If your focus is English, turn an independent study into the chance to draft your first novel. From professional TV studios to our Biological Field Station, Oneonta offers you outstanding options for HANDS-ON LEARNING.
CLUBS, TEAMS, AND ACTIVITIES

MORE THAN 45,000 HOURS DEDICATED TO VOLUNTEER SERVICE ANNUALLY.

 

HELP OUT CLOSE TO HOME OR ON SERVICE TRIPS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

CHANGE THE WORLD — AT LEAST A LITTLE CORNER OF IT.


When you take part in SERVICE LEARNING, you connect ideas from the classroom with the world beyond and you make a difference in someone’s life. It’s a great way to build skills and grow in leadership, and our award-winning Center for Social Responsibility and Community will help you find a project to match your talents and goals.

MAKE THIS PLACE YOUR HOME.


Its official nickname may be "The City of the Hills," but feel free to think of Oneonta as “THE PERFECT COLLEGE TOWN.” It’s got a walkable Main Street with charming old buildings, about a dozen sources of good pizza, great spots for meeting friends, and even a thriving independent
bookstore—all just blocks from campus.
JUST THE FACTS

“ Whether you’re coming from high school or another college, we want your journey here to start well.”

 

“FYE is the best idea ever.”

SEE HOW GOOD IT FEELS TO BELONG.


At Oneonta, we want you to fit in and feel at home right from the start, and that’s what our FIRST-YEAR EXPERIENCE (FYE) is all about. Nearly all our freshmen live together in freshmen-only residence halls—an arrangement students love. You’ll also find fun activities, a special First-Year seminar, and lots of personal support to help you make a smooth transition.

TEST-DRIVE YOUR CAREER GOALS.

 

“My goal is to work in fashion, and real experience is essential.”


FELICIA COMPLETED TWO INTERNSHIPS IN FASHION DESIGN.

GET READY FOR SUCCESS.


Internships give you an essential edge in your career, and Oneonta gives you INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES in every major. Employers range from local law firms, museums, and county agencies to Fortune 500 companies like JPMorgan Chase and Time Warner. Students work everywhere from Oneonta to New York and Washington, to Ghana and Hong Kong.
RED DRAGON ATHLETICS

“ It’s not just varsity sports. It’s club teams, intramurals, and a whole culture of fitness.”

 

“Through athletics, I made the closest friends I could ever imagine and had one of the greatest growth experiences.”

 

PLAY TO WIN.

 

 

“We’re super-passionate about our sports, but that’s not all that matters. Our student-athletes are students first.”
