Bus trip

Visiting our beautiful campus is the best way to know if SUNY Oswego is the right college for you. Our spring Admitted Student Days are the best options to learn all there is to know about SUNY Oswego. During an Admitted Student Day, you will have the opportunity to meet with faculty, current students and college staff from various departments and organizations. 

To make getting to SUNY Oswego easier, we are offering a "Catch the bus to Oz" package. For $40 per person (non-refundable and a maximum of two people per family), you can take the worries out of your trip. Take a nap on the ride up and be rested for a day of exploring!
