SUNY Oneonta

Oneonta, NYsuny.oneonta.edu
Like many other four-year colleges within the State University of New York system, SUNY Oneonta consistently receives praise for providing a quality education at an affordable price. Almost all of its about 5,700 undergrads students come from New York state. The university offers dozens of wide-ranging majors, and aside from always-popular programs such as business and psychology, other top choices for students include criminal justice, family and consumer sciences, and music management. Oneonta started as the state's education college, so it consistently enrolls a healthy crop of future teachers. The central New York campus is on a hill overlooking the city of Oneonta. A lush wooded area, once a local farm, sits a mile from campus; it's available for recreational activities and also houses the college's weather observatory, with the state's largest telescope. The city has a decent college-town vibe, thanks to Oneonta and nearby Hartwick College. Students say there are plenty of bars and restaurants to make for a bustling nightlife.
