We are delighted that you have chosen to attend SUNY Oswego. Soon you will embark on an exciting journey, and we're here to support you as you navigate the new places, people, opportunities, and lingo that SUNY Oswego has to offer!

Covid-19 will influence the modality of New Student Orientation for students enrolling at SUNY Oswego in Spring 2021. 

New students: please check your SUNY Oswego email address and the email address that you applied to the College for information on the delivery and completion of New Student Orientation. Information will be emailed to you, and posted on our website, in mid-November.

Here are some things you can expect from your Orientation experience:

  • Information on academics, campus life and student services
  • Support navigating academic services and tools, like myOswego and Degree Works
  • Connection with a returning student leader who will share with you the 'ropes' (no, not the notorious ropes from winter tales) about life on the Lake
  • Opportunities to connect socially with your new classmates 
  • Learn what it's like to be a Laker
