About SUNY Oneonta

SUNY Oneonta is a mid-size, public college rooted in scholarship across the liberal arts and sciences. We enroll 6,000 students in 70 undergraduate majors and 15 graduate programs. As a member of the State University of New York, our small classes, opportunities for undergraduate research, and student/faculty interaction are as attractive as our cost.

Nestled in the hills of Central New York, the college’s idyllic setting is ideal for study, adventure and self-discovery. Just “up the hill” from the charming City of Oneonta, our campus blends community and academe to engage, nurture and inspire.

Established in 1889 as a state normal school, Oneonta has become a premier school of the SUNY system. Our strong alumni network spans the globe, demonstrating the leadership and accomplishment that exemplify an Oneonta education.
