From the Editor’s Pen

This issue is our love song to Oswego on her 150th birthday. Of course, we know there are far more than 150 things to love about the college Edward Austin Sheldon founded a century and a half ago.

In fact, there are probably as many answers to the question “What do YOU love about Oswego?” as there are living alumni — a number that just topped 75,000.

Over the past few months, many of you answered our call for loveable things about your alma mater, and that’s how this list was generated. We couldn’t cover all 150 in the few pages we have here, so we chose a representative sampling.

So please don’t be upset if we didn’t mention your favorite memory about our gorgeous lakeside campus or student life in Oz. Just let us know! Please go online to and join in the conversation. Or drop us a line at Oswego alumni magazine, King Alumni Hall, 300 Washington Blvd., Oswego,
NY 13126.

And don’t forget to take your picture with Flat Founder and send it in to us at King Hall or

So raise a toast, hum a few bars of the alma mater and sing along with us: “Happy Birthday, dear Oswego, happy birthday to you … and many more!”
