May Commencement to Expand to Three Ceremonies
An increasing number of alumni, family and visitors supporting graduates on their special day will lead to Oswego adding a third May commencement ceremony starting in 2014.

SUNY Oswego Named Best in the Northeast
The Princeton Review has released its list of best colleges in the Northeast for 2014, and SUNY Oswego is on it. The 152-year-old college on the shore of Lake Ontario has been on every regional best list produced by the educational services company. The first edition appeared in 2003.

Experience the Excitement of Torchlight
Incoming freshman and transfer students were welcomed to our campus community Aug. 23 at the 24th annual Welcoming Torchlight Ceremony.

File to Graduate
The Registrar's Office has sent letters to prospective graduates with instructions and information on how to file online for graduation. Once the student has signed in, the graduation application form is linked to the student's account.

The deadline dates for filing are Oct. 1 for May 2014 commencement; Feb. 1, 2014, for August 2014 graduation (no ceremony); and April 1, 2014, for December 2014 commencement. Students are not automatically placed on a graduation list; it is the student's responsibility to make sure that he or she files online by the appropriate deadline or contacts the Registrar's Graduation Area for help.

Reserve a Room
If you have a graduating senior and plan to stay in a hotel, space is very limited and fills up quickly. View a list of accommodations and make reservations now!

A.S.K. for Career Help
If your student is looking for help in exploring a career, the Oswego Alumni Association has help. Our A.S.K. (Alumni Sharing Knowledge) program links current students with alumni mentors who can answer questions about a career, offer a job-shadowing experience or help make connections. Your student can be part of Oswego's powerful 78,000-member alumni network.
