Social media communities

SUNY Oswego utilizes several social media communities to communicate and converse with its range of stakeholders. You can find a complete and updated online inventory of Communications and Marketing-related social media outlets, but what follows are basic information on popular options and how we use them — which we hope will help you ponder what to do.

New York Alert

SUNY Oswego is one of many State University campuses that have adopted New York Alert, an emergency messaging platform powered by Everbridge -- a global company that provides enterprise software applications that automate and accelerate an organization’s operational response to critical events in order to keep people safe and businesses running. 

Nuclear emergency plan

The SUNY Oswego campus is just within the 10-mile zone of the nuclear plants at Nine Mile Point, east of the college in the town of Scriba. Federal regulations require that counties that are home to nuclear power plants prepare emergency response plans for the area within a 10-mile radius of the plants. Oswego County has such an emergency response plan through its Emergency Management Office.

Records access

As part of the State University of New York, SUNY Oswego makes certain records available to the public in accordance with New York's Freedom of Information Law (Public Officers Law Article 6 §§ 84-90).

Student records are generally private and accessible to the individual student and to college employees whose duties require access. Students should contact the office that holds their records in order to request copies.
