"We lift [Lakers] up... And we lift their families up."

"The material was not only presented, but forwarded as attachments. My wife and I both learned a lot and feel better about the college encouraging out involvement."

"What I loved the most was how invested each person we met was in their love of Oswego. Their pride made me want to work there and proud my kid is attending."

"Thank you for all you do. So grateful for all the information provided to make the college transition smooth."
