Chat live with faculty in our sciences, mathematics and health sciences programs.
Join us during the week of May 11 - 15 to connect with SUNY Potsdam's faculty in the STEM & Health Sciences fields. Learn more about our hands-on majors leading to competitive careers in research, medicine, science education, technology, data and much more. At these virtual events, we will have faculty members from the following departments represented: Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Geology, Math, Physics and Public Health & Human Performance.
Why study STEM at SUNY Potsdam?
- You’ll get a rigorous liberal arts education at a public university price.
- You won’t get lost in the crowd here. We have a 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio, so you’ll be in small seminars and lab courses… and your professors will become your mentors. Plus, with small and dedicated departments, our students really get to know each other and are very involved—whether through research or service learning, clubs or honor societies.
- You’ll have opportunities here you won’t get anywhere else. Because of our focus on (and funding for) applied learning, you will get to do things as an undergraduate that only grad students get to do at large universities.
- You can explore your options. We have the programs you’ve never even thought about, but may just end up falling in love with anyway… many of our students end up adding another major or minor, or switching programs. We’ll give you the space and guidance you need to make your own path.
- There’s no better place. Studying in the shadow of the Adirondacks means you have space to grow, and lots of natural beauty to explore. With three other universities within 10 miles, there are lots of things to do and people to meet, too.
- We get results. 99% of our graduates are employed or in grad school within six months of Commencement. Name your goal, and we will help you meet it.
“I definitely loved the small community at SUNY Potsdam. It’s really great because every professor that I had, knew my name, knew my story and knew me—it’s kind of amazing!"
