Oswego a Hispanic Outlook 'pick'

The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine has listed SUNY Oswego among its “2007 Publisher’s Picks.”

The list includes around 500 “colleges and universities at which, in our judgment, many Hispanic students have shown they can thrive and persist,” wrote publisher José López-Isa. “The sheer number of Hispanics persisting to graduation and earning degrees is rising and very heartening, especially when graduation represents a family first.”

Of Oswego’s full-time undergraduates, nearly 4 percent are identified as Hispanic.
