Laker for a Day


Congratulations on being admitted to SUNY Oswego!

Before you make your final college decision, it's important to consider all aspects of your college experience- from academics to residential life.

With our Lake for a Day program, admitted students are paired with current Oswego students and spend a day with them to allow an authentic look into the life of a Laker.

While being a Laker for a day, you may be able to experience (dependent on time and host):                                                                           

  • Meals in one of our 5 resident dining centers
  • A time to hang out in one of our 13 residential communities
  • Classes in our academic buildings
  • Club meetings, fitness classes & other campus activities!

Our Spring 2020 program runs from February 10th - May 1st.

The Laker for a Day program takes place throughout the week. Weekends are excluded. 

Please register for the day you plan to arrive at Oswego. Arrival times start around 8:30AM at the SUNY Oswego Admissions Office. Departure typically takes place by 4PM.
