The College at Oneonta has long recognized the importance of computers for students in our increasingly technological society. That's why the College is leading the SUNY system in making computer technology part of every student's education. Our faculty incorporates technology into their teaching at a far higher rate than the national average, using the Internet, computer-based classrooms, e-mail, and web pages. Through our computer labs in every academic building and residence hall, we ensure that all students have access to computers that will meet their academic needs. Our robust campus-wide network enables students to use the web for everything from conducting research to registering for classes.
