Being on a University campus helps students better understand what college is going to be like, and gets them more familiarized with American culture. This is a big benefit when it comes to practicing speaking because there are always students, professors, faculty, etc. around campus willing to speak with students. Another plus.. sitting by the lake can be a very peaceful and relaxing place to study!

Oswego is just a short bus ride away from Syracuse, NY. Luckily, EC students are able to get bus passes that can bring them to and from Syracuse! There are so many places to see and things to do in Syracuse as well! Restaurants, museums, malls, sporting events, and then some!
The safety of our students is a huge priority on campus as well. The State University Police Department on campus is staffed by professional police officers and they are available 24 hours a day. They do year-round vehicle and bicycle patrols, and also monitor the electronic residence hall card access – as no one is allowed inside unless they have an ID card. The campus also has an emergency notification system (voice and text) so you are notified efficiently if there is an emergency.
EC Oswego will prepare you for your undergraduate or graduate courses by teaching paper writing, presentation skills, and overall college prep.
