Laker Launch

The week before classes begin, first-year students are welcomed on campus to help become more acquainted with campus life. Sessions about campus partners are offered, while providing fun-filled opportunities for Lakers to experience why they get to call Oswego “home.” Past years have involved Campus Picnics, carnival activities, and more!

Family & Friends Weekend

October 20-22, 2023!

Family & friends are invited to visit SUNY Oswego during an October weekend to get acquainted with your Laker’s home-away-from-home. This weekend is packed with fun events to keep the whole family entertained. Hockey games, tours, and movie screenings are all offered free of cost.
