Austin Byrd ’10

"I donate to Oswego because I have made the friends of a lifetime there. I was in my freshman roommate's wedding, and live with a friend I worked with as a Resident Mentor. The experiences and memories I have from Oswego are second to none."


Steven DiMarzo '11 M ’15
Vice President

"I give to SUNY Oswego because it's where I called home during some of the best years of my life and I want to help build the strongest home possible for current and future students' to have experiences and memories unsurpassed by any other institution."


Jessica Bagdovitz ’12

"I give back because I know that there would be less opportunity for learning without alumni donors. I benefited from donations far beyond the classroom, and I want to give new students the same experience." 


Maggie Dolly ’07

 "I wouldn't have had the courage or support to move to Los Angeles without first having done Hollywood POV. I give back to Oswego so that future students have that same opportunity and we can continue to grow our west coast group of alums."

Dan Tascarella ’07

"Oswego is a part of who I am today because of the lifelong friendships, education and experiences that I had at Oswego.  As a student and continuing to this day, I am proud to say some of my greatest mentors have been fellow Oswego alumni.  I give back to Oswego with my time and money so current students become successful alumni." 


Sarah Kane ’08 

"As an undergraduate, I received the Presidential Scholarship for all four years that I attended Oswego. I give back to the scholarship fund to enable future students to receive the aid I did in order to keep student loan debt down. As a current MBA student at SUNY Oswego, I have limited funds, but still find a few dollars to give back to a program that helped me so much."

"I give back to Oswego because it gave so much to me. Friendships I will have forever, memories that I will never forget, and a future that I can look forward to, and I want to help all Oswego alumni to have that opportunity."

Amy LaLonde ’12

"My reasons for giving are simple. I received the Presidential Scholarship to attend Oswego, allowing me to enjoy four fun-filled years of education and then subsequently pursue a Ph.D. program without the financial stress of needing to pay off student loans on a student stipend. Even living on a student stipend, I give back because every little bit counts."


Zach Paley '12 

"I am involved and give back to Oswego because I'd like to see more alumni do the same and help students build successful futures."

Jennifer Watson ’12

"I give back because I personally understand the value that goes along with giving back.Throughout my experience, I have witnessed many alumni give back through improvements on campus, scholarship funds, and access to leadership opportunities and I am excited to contribute to the development of current and future students as well as sustaining SUNY Oswego's beautiful campus."


Tucker Sholtes '15 

“I give back to SUNY Oswego because of how much it has given to me. During my four years at Oswego, I learned so much about myself and my abilities. Oswego allowed me the opportunity to constantly challenge myself on a daily basis. I would not be where I am today without SUNY Oswego, and I want to ensure that future students have the same opportunities that I had.”

"I give back back to Oswego because it has given so much to me. Transferring to Oswego was the best decision I have made. As one great professor told me 'you don't choose your path, your path chooses you.' I wouldn't be where I am today and where I am going to be without Oswego."


Kalyn Duguay '16

"When I first came to Oswego, I was nervous to get involved and wasn't sure if I had made the right choice. Then, during my sophomore year, I was chosen to be involved in the restart of the Future Alumni Network student group. In one year, through FANs, I made strong friendships and connections. By giving back and being involved, I'll be able to contribute back to the clubs and organizations that help students feel at home at SUNY Oswego, just like FANs and my sorority did for me."


Joseph Gorsuch '16

"I give back because Oswego is a special place in which I was able to grow into the person I am today; my opportunities were endless, networking extraordinary and the learning environment is unparalleled. I want to help ensure countless other students experience the same!"


Darlene Le '16

"Oswego has played such a significant role in my personal growth and development. I tribute my success to the support of faculty, staff and alumni at Oswego, and I want to give back to my alma mater and future students."
