SUNY Oswego earned a State University-wide award for providing express shuttle service for incoming students from the New York City metro area to attend New Student Orientation sessions.
The SUNY Council of Chief Student Affairs Officers and the Office of University Life announced the award for Oswego in the category of “enrollment management, financial aid, orientation, parents, first-year, other-year and related.”
The college has invested in full-time admissions counselors in metro New York and on Long Island, as well as part-time recruiters in the Lower Hudson Valley and New Jersey. For years, SUNY Oswego has provided bus service for weekend Admitted Student Days on campus.
The express bus service—providing New York City-area students and their guests with a choice of two dates for orientation—combined the efforts of the Division of Student Affairs and the offices of Admissions, New Student Orientation and Auxiliary Services, which assisted in keeping the cost low.
Emmanuel Cruz ’09, regional admissions counselor in New York City, rode the bus to provide additional support and information to the new students and their guests.
The mission of New Student Orientation at SUNY Oswego is to provide programs and services that ensure a successful transition to the academic, cultural and co-curricular environment at the college.
