The Road to Oz: Advice, Tips and Information for Prospective SUNY Oswego Students

By Cassie and Cloey
Welcome to The Road to Oz! Hosted by SUNY Oswego Seniors, Cassie and Cloey. Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, SUNY Oswego is not able to have traditional face-to-face visits. BUT we wanted to make sure that you still get to experience the student perspective on our school and also learn about different aspects of our campus. Each episode we will cover something different and these will come out at least twice a week. If at any point you are listening and have questions you want to ask us please feel free to message us on Instagram @oswego_admission or send us an email at admiss@oswego.edu
