College leaders and dignitaries dedicated the Village townhouse community and marked the occasion with a tree planting Sept. 17.
Like the groundbreaking for the Science, Engineering and Innovation Corridor earlier the same day, the ceremony focused on the new complex's role in educating students.
"We are certain that the Village will be a place where our students can grow and prosper," Vice President for Student Affairs Joseph Grant said. One benefit is the proximity to learning centers that on-campus housing provides the 348 juniors and seniors who might otherwise live in town.
The Village houses students in four- and six-person units in a complex just south of Glimmerglass Lagoon. The state-of-the-art, environmentally responsible community features such off-campus amenities as a full kitchen, furnished living rooms, laundry units in each house and a large commons building for leisure and studying.

Residence Life and Housing Director Rick Kolenda said that the completion of the Village is a reflection of the collective efforts from a variety of different groups, including architects, construction crews, administrative planning and student focus groups.
"The community feel is something that you remember for the rest of your life," Student Association President Steven DiMarzo '11 said at the dedication. "It's what attracts good students and it's proof of how Oswego can expand and adapt."
