The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh is actual the third largest campus in Wisconsin, but honestly it does not seem that big. For me it the perfect size, especially since I am came from such a small town. Even though it is the third largest campus, the class sizes are not that big. The professors are so easy to talk to and helpful when you don't understand something.

Jeramiah

Unfortunetly, UW Oshkosh is widely known for drinking and parties. That is the first thing that comes to mind when people think of Oshkosh, those are people who do not attend this school and work diligently through the rigorus courses in the difficult journey to complete their education here. Personally, I think this is a very negative title that has stuck to Oshkosh and clung for far too long. I would like to see a new, and more positive title for Oshkosh in the near future.

Our school has very well-known nursing and journalism programs. Furthermore, our school has started a revolutionary freshman program called the University Studies Program. Freshmen students take classes that we would have to take anyway, and they are put in a class of 25 or less, rather than pit classes. There are three questions students must answer throughout three semesters in the USP program. These questions are in regards to sustainability, intercultural knowledge, and civic learning. These questions help students apply knowledge they learn in regular general education classes to their own futures.

What I know UW-Oshkosh for best is its school pride. Everywhere you look students are getting involved on campus and in the community. The university makes it easy to get involved too, with a help desk that will find the perfect group or groups that fit you best.

Mollie

My school is known best for students having a drinking problem. Many students are put on academic probation due to excessive drinking. Drinking is a problem, one that many people face. But the problem here is when students do not face their drinking problem. When begining at a university it is important to understand that one needs to balance recreactional activities with their academic studies. Academic probation is a serious problem that no student wants to face their first semester of college, so no matter how many parties their are most nights should be spent studying, not partying at college.

Michael

Oshkosh is best known for its sustainability efforts. It is one of the top green campuses in the United States and everyone seems to like that. Buildings are built to be energy efficient, water for showers in the dorms are heated with solar panels, and 10% of campus power comes from a biomass plant close to campus. Many of the courses offered have a theme of sustainability.

Although professors may seem strict they really like to see the students that work hard excel. By putting in the time and effort you can succeed.
