Summer brings some Oswego students back to classrooms

An estimated 1,300 college students are returning to their studies during SUNY Oswego’s summer sessions. The first session started May 26.

SUNY Oswego offers graduate and undergraduate courses at its lakeside campus in Oswego as well as at the Metro Center in downtown Syracuse and the Phoenix Center in Phoenix.

“Students take courses during the summer for a number of reasons,” said Tom Ingram, director of academic programs for the Division of Extended Learning. “Many seize the opportunity to earn college credit at an accelerated pace, using the time to get ahead or catch up with their coursework.”

SUNY Oswego’s first summer session features more than 50 courses offered online and more than 80 in classrooms.

In trying to help the regional economy and retain younger graduates, SUNY Oswego’s Course to Connect program offers an opportunity for any Central New York resident with a bachelor’s degree to take a first graduate course, tuition-free, this summer at its Metro Center in Syracuse.
