Oswego named 'College of Distinction'

imageSUNY Oswego was nominated as a College of Distinction earlier this year and is now profiled on the Colleges of Distinction Web site. Oswego is currently one of 17 New York colleges listed, only three of them public.

According to Student Horizons, which compiles the list, a College of Distinction is nationally recognized by education professionals as an excellent school, strongly focused on teaching undergraduates, home to a wide variety of innovative learning experiences, an active campus with many opportunities for personal development, and highly valued by graduate schools and employers for its outstanding preparation.

Colleges listed are evaluated by students, parents, educators and admissions professionals, who rate the schools based on four “distinctions”: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes.

“It’s interesting that Colleges of Distinction came up with four criteria that mesh so well with what we’re all about at Oswego,” said Dr. Joseph Grant, vice president for student affairs and enrollment management.
