Graduate Studies Week - November 9-13, 2020 

Our graduate students and faculty have made SUNY Oswego a special place to learn and grow for over 70 years — Join us for a week long celebration of Graduate Studies at SUNY Oswego from November 9th to 13th.

We will be honoring our current graduate students and providing undergraduate students an opportunity to learn more about our robust graduate programs. Current graduate students can learn about how your education is being implemented in challenging times.  Gather to chat with faculty and alumni about their experiences.

All events are free and registration is encouraged. 

The Grad-itude Project

In celebration of Graduate Studies Week 2020--join the Division of Graduate Studies in expressing gratitude to students, faculty, staff, family and friends by posting notes, photos and brief videos to our board.
