A Sense of Place: The Residential Campus Experience

Spring_2016 online headers 848x3512 (2)

Residential life is part of the culture of SUNY Oswego, an essential component of a student’s experience. It is the intersection of people and place, an active and vibrant core of college life that builds a sense of community and nurtures a spirit of lifelong learning. Research supports the idea that students who live in on-campus housing are more academically and socially engaged in the college environment. Those who live on campus for even one year tend to earn better grades and graduate because of the increased opportunity that on-campus housing provides for student engagement.

A place to sleep, a desk for studying and a dining hall nearby. And in the memories of SUNY Oswego alumni—so much more.
