Student Success Programs       Make a Gift
Several SUNY Oswego programs — including pre-college preparation, advising and tutoring, “learning communities” and our math and writing centers — assist students as they transition to campus life and adapt to the challenges of college study.

Our research shows that the guidance these programs provide is a critical factor in keeping students enrolled and helping them attain their degrees. Investing in and expanding this support system ensures that we will always wed access to success, with the goal of improving retention and graduation rates.

Among the resources available to students to support their success is the Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) mentoring program run through the Alumni Relations Office. Gifts of all sizes to The Fund for Oswego provide the support to administer ASK as well as the Alumni-In-Residence, Backpack-to-Briefcase, Future Alumni Network, New York City Career Connectors and other student success programs.

Several naming opportunities exist to support student success programs, including the Compass, the on-campus educational planning center in the Marano Campus Center. These naming gifts can be designated to support the tools and resources within these existing spaces.
