About SUNY Oswego

With a student body of 8,000 students, the State University of New York at Oswego is large enough to offer more than 110 programs of study yet small enough for students to form lifelong bonds with each other and their professors and mentors. Learning-centeredness is Oswego's organizing principle for decisions about responsibilities, activities, resources, and academic and physical environments as the college addresses the widening missions of public higher education in the 21st century and continues to advance the public good. Students study in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; School of Business; School of Communication, Media and the Arts; and School of Education as well as innovative interdisciplinary programs that cross traditional boundaries. Oswego opens doors for students with highly rated experiential learning and study-abroad opportunities.The state has invested more than $800 million in campus renewal at Oswego since 2000, bringing new luster and technologies to old buildings and adding wholly new state-of-the-art facilities. The college's new construction is all designed to meet the LEED Gold standard of the U.S. Green Building Council.Inspired by a shared commit ... ment to excellence and the desire to transcend traditional higher-education boundaries, SUNY Oswego strives to be a premier institution that provides a transformative experience to a diverse body of students, empowering them to live ethical and meaningful lives and build a better world. Strong traditionThe college was founded in 1861 as a teacher training school by Edward Austin Sheldon, who embraced and popularized some of the most innovative teaching methods of his day. Oswego became one of the State University of New York's founding members in 1948 and evolved into a full-fledged arts and sciences university college in the SUNY system by 1962, when it entered a period of rapid growth: as enrollment soared, 29 new buildings opened in the 1960s alone.The legacy of 19th century founder Edward Austin Sheldon still underpins the college's identity and invigorates its vision. Sheldon built a powerful public asset to meet the needs of rising populations and was one of the original adopters of experiential learning as a compelling pedagogy. LocationThe college's 690-acre campus, featuring nearly a mile of Great Lake shorefront, is scenic every season of the year. Lake Ontario with its connected waterways and natural beauty is the focal point for world-class sports fishing, outstanding opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, community parks, living history through maritime museums and Fort Ontario, and festivals like Oswego's Harborfest as well as a thriving port. To the north are the Thousand Islands of the St. Lawrence Seaway, to the south the vineyards of the Finger Lakes. Syracuse is the metropolitan cultural hub for Central New York, a 45-minute drive from Oswego. Its international airport is closer still. SUNY Oswego also has a branch campus in Syracuse, where it offers degree completion programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.Welcome Video Facts Map State University of New York at Oswego on Twitter
