SUNY Potsdam is one of 3 designated arts campuses in the SUNY System. We offer programs in art, music, dance, theatre, film studies, and creative writing. 
Welcome Team
First Year Program
We're the first SUNY school to merge academics, residential accommodations, and the faculty into our first year program. And it all starts with our Welcome Team. 
Clubs & Organizations
Greek Life is just one of over 70 clubs and organizations for students to join. From the Frisbee Club to the Culinary Club, there is something for everyone.
Get Outdoors
Get Outdoors!
Just one block away from the Racquette River and minutes from the Adirondack State Park, Potsdam students take advantage of our location every day! Venture Outdoors allows students to rent equipment like kayaks and snow shoes for little or no cost.  
Go Further.

When it comes to application review, SUNY Potsdam takes a holistic approach. We focus on previous academic performance, emphasizing the cumulative grade point average and curriculum rigor. We also use a letter of recommendation, essay, and activities to learn more about our applicants. We are SAT/ACT optional. Learn more about the types of students accepted at SUNY Potsdam.
