U.S. News & World
Report has listed SUNY Oswego on a list of just 30 well-regarded colleges
nationally that offer small classes without high prices.
“Attending a big, affordable public university doesn’t doom
a student to huge lecture halls. U.S.
News has found dozens of lower-priced colleges in which at least half of
all classes have fewer than 20 students,” the magazine’s Kim Clark wrote Nov.
Under President Deborah F. Stanley, Oswego launched a small-class initiative
several years ago that has steadily increased the number of classes with fewer
than 20 students, especially for first-year students.
“We know that our juniors and seniors often have small
classes by virtue of their more advanced and specialized studies,” Stanley said, “but we also
know how important it is to engage our newest students in rigorous intellectual
exchanges with their professors and classmates.
“We believe this happens best in the small-class
environment, and we’ve strategized to provide more of these intimate learning
opportunities,” she added.
New York placed well on
the list with five campuses in all and the College of Environmental
Science and Forestry on top.
