The abundance of green space and blue views drew Gary Sutton '08 to campus in the first place, so showing countless groups of prospective students the Oswego State sights was a natural fit for him, even as a freshman.
Sutton is still giving Admissions tours four years later as he prepares for his first semester of graduate classes this fall.
"I love the summertime up here," said Sutton, an Auburn native. "Everyone complains about the winter, but most of them never experience the warmer months."
You can catch Sutton most summer days walking around campus with a group of parents and prospective students. Working in the Office of Admissions has been an important part of the education major's Oswego experience.
"I think getting involved has been a big thing for me," said Sutton, who also spent time working as a residence hall desk attendant.
The tours remain a highlight for Sutton, who majored in adolescence education with a math concentration as an undergraduate.
"I love talking to the prospective students," he said. "I'm thinking of being a guidance counselor down the road."
The one-time Presidential Scholar will be working on his master's degree in literary education. Sutton hopes to teach 10th through 12th graders for a while before returning to school again for a degree in counseling or an education doctorate.
