Shining Waters Initiative

Shining Waters is a new group on campus focusing on the ecological preservation of Lake Ontario and our campus. We aim to increase the awareness of our student body on the importance of the Great Lakes and to help students become stewards of Lake Ontario.

Shining Waters will be hosting a weekly lakeshore clean up throughout the campus. Residential buildings “adopt” certain sections of SUNY Oswego’s 1.1 miles of beachfront property in hopes that residents of those buildings will feel responsible for their hall’s section and keep it clean. 


Programs run on Monday, at various times/buildings.
