SUNY Oneonta

About SUNY Oneonta

SUNY Oneonta is a mid-size, public college rooted in scholarship across the liberal arts and sciences. We prepare students for successful careers and the pursuit of advanced degrees.

As a member of the State University of New York, our small classes, opportunities for undergraduate research, and student/faculty interaction are as attractive as our cost.

Nestled in the hills of Central New York, the college’s idyllic setting is ideal for study, adventure and self-discovery. Just “up the hill” from the charming City of Oneonta, our campus blends community and academe to engage, nurture, and inspire.

Initially established in 1889 as a state normal school, Oneonta has become a premier school of the SUNY system. Our strong alumni network spans the globe, demonstrating the leadership and accomplishment that exemplify an Oneonta education.


Camp Counselor

July 2022 - August 2022 Oneonta, NY
“I am an education major, and for this summer camp we focused on video game design. Myself and the other camp counselor who is also an Ed. major put together power points designed like lessons, and we demonstrated to our campers how to design videogames as if we were teaching them. To them, it was summer camp, but to us in a way it was like field experience practice.”
