First-ever Summer Open House July 22

imageSUNY Oswego will hold its first-ever Summer Open House on Friday, July 22, to reach new high school seniors beginning their search for a college.

While SUNY Oswego traditionally holds three campus-wide open houses during the academic year and smaller information programs throughout the year, other colleges have staged more comprehensive summer events with success, said Katie Maxwell, an admissions counselor who coordinates the Summer Open House.

“It provides another option, a more extensive effort to let students considering Oswego know more about college life,” Maxwell said. “Students and their families will be able to learn more about our campus and ask questions about offices, offerings and programs.”

The Summer Open House will feature two half-day sessions. The morning program will start at 9:30 a.m., the afternoon option at 1 p.m. Attendees can tour the lakeside campus; attend sessions on financial aid, living on campus and becoming involved; speak with current students; and find out about Oswego’s First-Year Programs designed to ease the transition from high school to college.

Potential transfer students are invited as well. Transfers will have a question-and-answer session dedicated to their concerns.

There is no cost to attend the Summer Open House, but pre-registration is recommended. For more information, contact the SUNY Oswego Office of Admissions at 312-2250 or visit
