UW Oshkosh Description

Part of the largest university in the state, University of Wisconsin in Oshkosh provides traditional and alternative learning options and numerous on-campus recreational, service and cultural activities.

A traditional bachelor’s degree at Oshkosh may be earned in such academic areas as literature, languages, the natural and social sciences and performing and fine arts.

The Center for New Learning (CNL) is one of several alternative education programs at the Oshkosh campus. This particular program is designed exclusively for adult learners who would, without the flexibility and online courses of CNL, not be able to pursue advanced education.

I was very impressed when I visited UW-Oshkosh. I had visited numerous colleges before I tried UW-O. I was excited to see the business school and the opportunities that are available to the students through the program. The internships are priceless and create a great way to get a feel for what our career will be like when we graduate. I was super happy to see the fitness facilities available to students, also. It is important for students to take care of their health while studying. Though I won't be staying on campus, the housing that is offered to students is fantastic. The new dorms make life much easier than the old style dorms. Your social life is a great asset to studying. Being able to connect with and support other students is vital to a student's mental health.

I love the size of Oshkosh. It's perfect for me. The campus is located in an area that not to far from stores and restaurants allowing opportunities to get off campus with friends. The walking distances between classroom buildings is also efficient and well planned out. I love the freshman only buildings at Oshkosh. It has really allowed me to make friends who are in the same position as me and want to get out and try new things, but not alone. Being by others like myself as made a community that is really understanding. I will always remember all the things that I've been part of in the dorms and watched take place with my friends things such as pranks, girl talks and much more. My advice for prospective students is don't get all flustered with scheduling. Even if it seems like it's not going to work out, trust me it will.
