Lighting the Way Since 1861

For more than 160 years SUNY Oswego has been inspired by those who desire to push traditional higher-education boundaries. Our campus community cares deeply about its students by providing the best facilities and resources, award-winning faculty and dedicated staff, in-demand academic programs, and applied learning opportunities.

At Oswego, our core is our students. We measure the success of the institution on how well we nurture, mentor, inspire, and prepare our students so that they may go on to live ethical and meaningful lives and build a better world as successful graduates.
