The University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh was my third college choice, but due to complications with my major I decided this was my best option. Oshkosh was one of the few UW schools that offered Dual-Education. I was shocked that my top two colleges only offered general education or special, there was no option to take a degree in both. The reason why Oshkosh was not my first option was due to the bad reputation about underage drinking and the overall location of the school. As soon as I got past my first week of school I knew I made the best decision! My professors were amazing, dorms was clean, and many opportunities were coming my way! The UWO Hip Hop team invited me to their tryouts personally due to my previous dance experience. I felt honored that they knew who I was and wanted me on their team. I can honestly say those 2 years on the team were the best years of dance I've ever had! If it weren’t for Oshkosh I would have never met some of my best friends and amazing professors.
Review University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh
University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is a fantastic campus! Each professor really puts their students first. They don't want you to fail, they just want you to be challenged. The academics are great and you really do learn things you've never known before. Not only are the academics great, the campus is beautiful. Fall is by far the prettiest when it comes to a season on campus. There is just something about the leaves falling in Oshkosh. Also, the dorms that are available to live in are not as small as people think. They are very spacious and inviting. University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is truly fantastic!
Transferring from a smaller University, I was afraid of just being a number here. That was not the case at all, most professors showed interest in every student, even during the larger lecturer halls. I was afraid I wouldn't find my place here, but after the first week of school I knew I made the right decision to transfer. Attending a mid-size university allowed me to take myself out of my comfort zone and get involved with my school. I think one of the best decisions I did, was work at the university, the summer before my first semester. Working for the university allowed me to meet most of the maintenance workers and see their passion towards this school. I also got free donuts a lot of the days, overall great experience,so far!
