Strong traditionThe college was founded in 1861 as a teacher training school by Edward Austin Sheldon, who embraced and popularized some of the most innovative teaching methods of his day. Oswego became one of the State University of New York's founding members in 1948 and evolved into a full-fledged arts and sciences university college in the SUNY system by 1962, when it entered a period of rapid growth: as enrollment soared, 29 new buildings opened in the 1960s alone.The legacy of 19th century founder Edward Austin Sheldon still underpins the college's identity and invigorates its vision. Sheldon built a powerful public asset to meet the needs of rising populations and was one of the original adopters of experiential learning as a compelling pedagogy. LocationThe college's 690-acre campus, featuring nearly a mile of Great Lake shorefront, is scenic every season of the year. Lake Ontario with its connected waterways and natural beauty is the focal point for world-class sports fishing, outstanding opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, community parks, living history through maritime museums and Fort Ontario, and festivals like Oswego's Harborfest as well as a thriving port. To the north are the Thousand Islands of the St. Lawrence Seaway, to the south the vineyards of the Finger Lakes.
