Freshmen at Le Moyne and SU must also
read a common book. The book invokes ques- tions and allows for longterm academic inqui- ry, says Ames, since it is discussed throughout the first year. A recent selection at Le Moyne include Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America by Barbara Ehrenreich, while this year’s tome is The Adventures of Huckle- berry Finn by Mark Twain. High school students grow accustomed to
being told when homework is being collected and knowing what is happening at all times. College provides a much different experience. “In the 21st century, it is not all about what academic skills you have when you leave,” says Ames. “You need to be articulate, be able to problem solve and deal with different types of people. That is what real academic inquiry is.”
It is also important to know there is more to
success than just academics; you need to navigate the social scene. With new freedoms, especially being away from parents for substantial lengths of time, one needs to get acclimated with how to handle drugs, alcohol and peer pressure properly. Discouraging alcohol use among underage
students is at the top of most college’s lists. Oswego provides late night programs for those who want a sober alternative. These programs include bingo, open mike nights, concerts, hypnotists and coffee with friends. “People will always drink on a college
campus, but we provide that alternative,” says Winkworth. “We continue to strive to do things that students will respond to. If they are being influenced that much by their peers at that time, we feel we can also influence them in a healthier manner. And that is what we do.”
