Okay i have lots to say about SUNY Oswego. I dont beleieve in discouraging you from coming here only telling you the facts.|
Lets start off with this since this is what most people care about. THERE are parties every week most of the time. yes a contranidction. The school is frat- dominated , meaning if you want to have fun you are most likely going into a frat party.
However here is a typical frat party, balls to walls crowded, a majority arent sausage fest, they try to take advatange of you and charge 5 dollars at the door but kick you out of 10min later if it is filled or ran out of beer (which is often ). The goal of most party throwers is to get as much people in, tell people there are like 5 kegs. Then lie about the amount they have left and go to the bars. Oh Yeah an Oswego party starts @ 9 PM 9/10 TIMES AND ENDS AT 12 AM 8/10 TIMES
You will have to search high and low for a party, and some house parties are hard to come by. Some of the best parties are on the main road which is crawling with cops.The only way you would get drunk if you 'pregame' because you are only getting 2 beers if you leave for a party at 9 and 7 if you leave at 830.
If you are a minority in oswego good luck. Unless you can cut hair or find someone in the school, your ceasar it going to be an afro. The Black frat try hard too make the stay here fun. But it is a dead cause. Dont get me wrong they do ALOT of events , but if are used to dubbing at a party or club you will miss it. There are no urban or popping clucbs in Oswego nor the surrounding area. Sometimes they have a night like once a month , but you will need a ride.It also seemed by the middle of October everything slowed down. I am not looking forward to the Spring semester due to all the fucking snow and dickheads

| I attended Oswego from 2004-2008. I was an education major and I did not care for the department. There are some really good professors who really have a passion for creating enthusiastic, smart and creative educators. Then there are some who will treat you like an idiot and try to smash all the creativity that you have. It just so happened that the bad professors out weighed the good. When you get into higher level classes be prepares for 4 semesters of teachers telling you that because you are white you are a racist, and there is not telling them otherwise. Overall the education department makes you jump through hoops. It is like they want you to fail. |
I love to social life here. I was an RA for 2 years so I was not always involved with the partying scene. There are a lot of things to do on campus or in town, you just have to look for them. If you like to drink and party, you really do not have to seek out entertainment.....it will just find you.
I think the campus is ugly! But the inside of some of the recidence halls are really nice. Of course the new campus center is really nice. Overall, I love the expereince I had at Oswego. I made the best friends in the world and had a memorable 4 years. I just wish the Edu department would get their acts together and hire some more professors who give a darn!

| Oswego is a fairly good college. The food, social life, and dorms are all very good. The only negative is that the student body is not particularly diverse. However, most of the students and professors are very friendly. I couldn't see myself anywhere else. |
