Oneonta Rocks!link to YouTube clip of 30 Rock slamming SUNY Oneonta
Is it true what they say, there is no bad publicity? That comes to mind with the reference to SUNY and to SUNY Oneonta in the TV show 30 Rock. What's not in the clip. It is important to note that later in the episode, the main character, Jack realizes, "Wait. I had humble beginnings, I went to public school, and I'm the successful one." Jack carries the day.
