Graduate school helped me narrow down what I wanted to do. The faculty helped with my resume, my cover letter, and anything that could help me get ahead. I was able to research any area that I liked, and it didn't matter if it benefited them. They care about the outcome of the students.

I received more than I could have dreamed of at SUNY Oswego. I received financial support from many resources, long lasting friendships, networking opportunities and experiences I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. This is not just any old program, it really caters to the individual and creates long lasting opportunities. My heart is still so full.
