“The close collaboration with faculty really gave me a competitive edge when I was applying to Ph.D. programs. I frankly believe that without having so much research experiences that Oswego offered me, new doors in my career path would have not opened. The faculty members, administrative staff and the overall research-friendly environment of Oswego really motivated me to conduct research on topics.”
