Catch the Bus to Oz

To Oswego and back again

To make getting to Admitted Student Days a little easier, we’re offering a round-trip “Catch the Bus to Oz” package from select locations. For $50 per passenger, you can take the worries out of your trip, take a nap on the ride up and be rested for a day of exploration!

$50 per passenger (non-refundable) | Limit 2 passengers*
Register below for the departure location and date that’s best for you!

By signing up for a bus trip you are officially registered for an Admitted Student Day and do not need to fill out a separate registration for the event.

Admitted students and families who prefer to make independent travel arrangements may register for Admitted Student Days with no bus trip.
