January 4, 2021

"Throughout this pandemic, our greatest achievements in battling this vicious virus has been through our work together—and our SUNY campuses have time and time again answered the call to help their communities. As Oswego Hospital is administering COVID vaccinations, the hospital has been supported by SUNY Oswego that has provided much needed freezers to safely store the vaccines. This commitment to community by SUNY Oswego gives us all great pride in being a part of the SUNY family. I thank President Deborah Stanley and her team for answering the call."
