Pride & Spirit

 

The true measure of a college's greatness can be found in the achievements of its alumni. In 2014, the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association established the Alumni of Distinction program to bestow this honor upon alumni who have distinguished themselves through their careers, their service to their communities, and their commitment to our college.

The Alumni of Distinction honor recognizes just a few of the thousands of alumni who have made significant contributions to society, and whose accomplishments, affiliations, and careers have honored the legacy of excellence at the college. This honor illustrates the great value of the academic experience and increases the pride alumni, students, staff, and faculty have for the college.
