Spring is arriving at SUNY Oswego, and students are shaking off late-winter doldrums with Frisbee on the emerging grass and soaking up the sunshine’s warmth. Spirits are lifted and smiles abound.

Educating teachers is in SUNY Oswego’s DNA. Since our founding by Edward Austin Sheldon more than 150 years ago, we have incorporated and developed the most effective teaching techniques to educate students.
