Amanda Curtin - 1/16/2020
Degree: Fashion
Graduation Year: 2011
"I loved the fashion design program offered at SUNY Oneonta. The professors are wonderful in giving the best education in the industry and offer a great deal of support when asked. They also offer a nice hybrid program with FIT which helps financially in the long run."

Justine - 8/23/2019
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015
"SUNY Oneonta's English department was the most welcoming, supportive, and encouraging group I could have dreamed of. While classes were not always as challenging as I hoped, there was always something of interest. The professors were lively, knowledgeable, and passionate about their topics. The spread of courses required by the program pushed me into subjects I may not have chosen on my own but which became new favorites of mine. The clubs and conferences associated with the English department were all wonderful ways to get involved and meet my peers, as well as networking with the professors."

Michelle Furman - 4/1/2019
Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2013
"I attended Oneonta State for four years to obtain my Bachelors Degree in 2013. My overall experience of the college was fantastic, but I wish I had known a little more about the computer art program before I entered it. I entered college as an art major and realized that computer related fields were on the rise, so I focused my degree on computer art and graphic design. Although the major was fun and creative, several professors in the Art department were very laid back and didn't expect a lot from the students. Once I entered my career as a graphic designer I realized actually how little I learned from college. Work experience and internships gave me much more knowledge than the course curriculum did. Also, since Oneonta is a small town, there is not many graphic design internships to choose from and the ones that are there are very small scale. The college as a whole was very connected and inclusive. It is a great size school with a lot to offer if you look for it. The weather in Oneonta is cold and dreary most days, but the minute the temperature is over 45, people are outside relaxing and socializing."

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017
"SUNY Oneonta is a great school- even though it is located in a little town that is in the middle of nowhere, there is still plenty of stuff to do on campus and off campus. The anthropology department at my school is really great if you are looking to go into the field or double major in anthropology- the building the department is in is new and the professors are great."

Degree: Liberal Arts

"A good liberal arts and education college. I found the instructors very thorough.With Hartwick College across the street soccer is the main sporting event. Both schools are generally nationally ranked every year. there is a vibrant social scene. Generally half the student body lives off campus"

"SUNY College at Oneonta is a great place for students to obtain their Bachelor's degree without the financial burden that private universities put on their students. There are plenty of networking, research, internship, and community opportunities for the students enrolled."

Johanna Appel - 2/28/2017
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016
"SUNY Oneonta was the best decision I've ever made. The second I arrived to take a tour, I felt like I belonged. The atmosphere is beautiful, the buildings are up to date, and the people are overwhelmingly nice. After my decision to enroll, I could not wait to begin. My freshman experience was amazing. The dorms were brand new, the staff was so helpful, and I made friends immediately. I fell in love with the town itself as well. Most things are in walking distance, and there are some amazing restaurants and sights to see in the area. I loved Oneonta because I saw so many familiar faces throughout my four years, but also was exposed to new people everyday. Those four years flew by, and I wish more than anything I had more time up there. I wholeheartedly believe Oneonta is the best place on earth."

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016
"SUNY Oneonta's Childhood Education program is well structured and provides students with plentiful hands-on experiences in elementary classrooms. My one critique is the faculty's lack of training in test preparation for important certification exams like the edTPA."

"Excellent hands-on learning opportunities that lead to a thorough generalist understanding of how museums are run. Small class size and professors with in the field experiences enhance the quality of the education."

"SUNY Oneonta was a wonderful school in the rural middle of NYS. It was a beautiful setting (especially in the fall) for students to form lifelong friendships while pursuing a career. My most enduring friendships were formed while studying at SUNY Oneonta."
