SUNY Oswego is among a select group of “Top Up-and-Coming
Schools” in the latest “America’s
Best Colleges” issue of the U.S. News.
Only 28 public colleges and universities made the list
nationally. In the northern region, Oswego is
one of just two public master’s level colleges selected for the distinction,
along with the College
of New Jersey.
The only other New York
colleges on the list are Wagner College and Marist College,
In the article “Keep an Eye on These Schools,” the magazine
said it used its annual peer assessment survey to identify “colleges and
universities that have recently made striking improvements or
innovations—schools everyone should be watching."
Recent improvements and innovations at Oswego include new
academic programs conceived in collaboration with the area’s business community
engineering and risk
management; unusual opportunities for students to engage in hands-on research
in the field, such as the “Storm
Chasers” course this summer; and half a billion dollars worth of campus
renewal projects, including the recently opened Campus Center and new science
facilities scheduled for construction beginning next year.
“This is an exciting time to be a member of the Oswego campus community,”
said Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley. “Our faculty and students have been
intimately involved in planning the initiatives that have won us this latest
recognition from U.S. News.
“Our improvements and innovations are attracting increasing
numbers of applicants, and the incoming class this fall will be among the most
talented in the history of our college.”
