The Voice of campus

Wow , wow , wow

One day you are playing your favorite record as you organize your binders, notebooks and syllabi after the first week of class. The next you look up and it is October 6th. Exactly a month to the date that you lasted posted. I almost feel a reintroduction is necessary. In any event this last month has been a very hectic one to say the least. Much has taken place both in the academic and the student involvement sectors. This semester I have a list of defined and extremely detailed goals. On of those goals was to help introduce an idea that I have been working on all summer long. At the conclusion of last semester I decided that I wanted to create a home. A home where my fellow students could display their talents and put to use the knowledge they had gained in the classrooms over the years.

So I joined together with an organization that I knew would share in not only my vision but understand the passion behind it. The Black Student Union. BSU has been a staple in the Oswego community for over 40 years, and has continued to find new ways in which to define their excellence. Last year they were awarded the prestigious Student Involvement President’s Award. The distinction was just one of many accolades and achievements gained by the organization in the last academic year alone. The idea I presented them was simple. Create a media outlet that  would serve as “the voice” of the campus.

Now I am aware that on this campus we have a few outlets. One being the Student Blogs ( which we are obviously on as I write and you read) and the other prominent source being the independent student run newspaper the Oswegonian.  I have been a contributing writer for them as well.However with all due respect to the Oswegonian there are more opinions/interest than the few often covered.

This is where we come in. The Voice has one main goal. That goal is to be a direct reflection of the opinions and interest of the students on this campus. To proactively disseminate diversity through the articles and interest articulated by the student who contribute. A broad range of interest such as fashion,art,entertainment, local/national news and opinion will be covered on a biweekly basis. The central theme to every article written is lies within each writers desire to share a perspective voice on campus, the roads they take are all different but the destination remains the same. While I can share more. I can’t think of a better introduction to this site than to share with you what your fellow students have already done.

I Present : The Voice



Community Comfort

SUNY Oswego Black Students Union and the Sigma Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha present Community Comfort an afternoon of Scholarship, Soul Food and Bonding.
The Goal of this Program is to aid students with the transition into college life and more specifically life here at SUNY Oswego. We are providing you guys successful strategies, tips, hints to get you started off on the right foot. Have you even been sitting in your room and had one of these questions pop into your head?

How do I calculate my GPA?

How do I pick what classes I need to take for next semester? Who should I take them with? How many should I take?

What should I do if I am not getting along with my teachers?
Where Can I get additional help with my class work?
What happens if I get an E or a D? Can I repeat that course? Will my financial aid be affected?

Having trouble adjusting to SUNY Oswego this semester?

All these questions and more can be answered by attending Community Comfort this Saturday at 3pm in the Campus Center Room 201. The Black Student Union and Alpha Phi Alpha will be having Soul Food and speaking about academic policies and student involvement. There are many different ways you can learn how to survive in college but what better way than to learn from your peers. Upper Classmen have a wealth of knowledge and experience that you can use for your benefit. We are encouraging all upper classmen to come out as well and assist in cultivating the youth of SUNY Oswego!

Please come eat and enjoy : )
