I got accepted into Oneonta and I’m getting anxiety from deciding whether or not I should go. I got a really good financial aid package but im just really nervous about being 3-4 hours away from home. I’m debating between Oneonta or a CUNY but part of me feels that I won’t be satisfied in a CUNY. I also really want a college community.
My biggest concern with Oneonta is diversity. As a hispanic girl when I went to go visit I didn’t really see many people who looked like me. Although I understand that’s almost anywhere but I can’t help but feel anxious over it. I was able to visit the Multicultural Club but it seemed pretty small and it didn’t seem like Oneonta was actively trying to help diversify their campus. Not sure. However, I did get to talk to some really cool people who made the campus feel very welcoming, so that was nice lol.
If anyone could offer me some guidance or support I’d really appreciate it. Please feel free to share your own experiences if you went or know someone who goes to Oneonta. Or even if you have any thing to say about the weather or dorm life that’d be cool too (I just really like detail lol).
