University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh Reviews
The University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh is a very wonderful place to go. The classes are no longer than a 10 minutes walk from the dorms and all the academic halls are rather close to each other. The entire campus is placed basically on two streets making it very easy to navigate. The food is also quite nice. There are two main commons: Blackhawk and Reeve Union. Blackhawk is where you get the basic buffet meals everyday.. and the ice cream. Reeve is where we have places like pizza hut and subway! Reeve is only accessible to to students with special meal plans or titan dollars unless it is the weekend. On the weekends, every meal plan is excepted and every student is a happy camper.
I like the majority of things offered at UW Oshkosh. In general, it feels like every little thing costs money and they do whatever they can to get more money out of you. The food is decent, it just seems like they have the same thing every other week. Blackhawk to go is awesome though! The campus is fairly close together and tight knit which makes it a great experience. I have only had one horrible professor is overall that department is good too. I like the school I go to!
UWO is the perfect size campus! I see many familiar faces on my way to classes and class sizes are normally not too big. I love the new construction in Reeve Union, it's a great place to study and take a break from Polk Library. Professors are great for the most part, and it's easy to get involved. As for social life outside of academics, there is lots to do and a lot of fun is to be made! One thing I would change is the food options.
