When I visited SUNY Oswego as a prospective student, it was one of my first times heading out to Western New York. It was mid-October and I had to wake up especially early to make the nearly three-hour drive in order to arrive at the College by 9 a.m. for my tour of the beautiful campus. But what did not wake me up was coffee or donuts from the Tim Horton’s between exits 28 and 29; it was the snow!
As soon as we passed Utica, it began to snow. And snow. And snow some more. Needless to say, when we arrived at SUNY Oswego, the city was completely covered in snow. It was almost as if I was in my own world though, because every single person in Oswego functioned as if this happened every day. (Does it?)
SUNY Mascot Madness is all about SUNY engagement; students, fans, alumni, and community members rally together to boost their favorite SUNY mascot up. But what’s the reasoning behind two hundred thousand votes cast in 2013?
As we approach the end of this year’s competition (which you still have some time to vote in if you haven’t already), we compiled the best mascot quotes from their profiles to explore the differences in personalities between the mascots. After all, who would have otherwise known that some North Country mascots have a longing to meet? Or how each of the 30 mascots joined their SUNY campus? Just like SUNY students, our mascots are diverse, energetic, and passionate!
With St. Patrick’s Day recently passing, Irish eyes were smiling while looking at opportunities within SUNY. Several SUNY schools offer a very unique array of study abroad opportunities with nearly 600 programs in more than 50 countries. Ireland is among those countries where students could study for as long as one semester or academic year, or have a short-term experience during the winter or summer. Internships, volunteer and service learning opportunities are also available in Ireland. Each program ensures an unforgettable experience for students.
We’ve gathered some basic information on a few of the many opportunities offered by SUNY campuses to study abroad, here specifically in Ireland. Read below to learn a little about them, and visit the campus website to find additional information.
