Metro Center to host graduate information night Nov. 12

Representatives of SUNY Oswego’s Graduate Studies Office will host an information session at the college’s Metro Center in downtown Syracuse from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12.

The session is geared toward professionals working in the downtown Syracuse area who are interested in earning a master’s degree while working. With the opening of the SUNY Oswego Metro Center a little over a year ago in the Atrium at 2 Clinton Square, Oswego began delivering programming in Syracuse that will allow people to work downtown and learn downtown.

“A major objective in opening the SUNY Oswego Metro Center was to offer high-quality and affordable graduate and professional development programs to working adults,” Graduate Studies Dean David King said. “We know it’s a challenge to balance career, family and educational goals, so we are working to develop a variety of degree, certificate and training programs that will serve the educational needs of people who are seeking professional opportunities, career advancement or retraining.”

In addition to the Metro Center, SUNY Oswego offers graduate courses online, at the lakeside Oswego campus and at the SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center off Route 481 in Phoenix.

Refreshments will be served during the Nov. 12 information session. Registration is not required. Potential students will be able to speak with representatives and academic advisers about the many opportunities available in degree, non-degree and certificate programming.

For more information, contact Oswego’s Graduate Studies Office at 312-3152. For directions to the SUNY Oswego Metro Center, visit or call 399-4100.
