What Students Are Saying

3.48 Average Rating
The application process can be made easier as long as you strive for good grades and a good score on your ACT. And with a good application essay, you're almost guaranteed a spot in the college.
Madysen from Neenah, WI
Live in the freshman village, NBC! It's a great experience and everyone is going through their first year of college together. The NBC staff is so helpful, and together everyone helps each other get through the tough parts of college.
Samantha from Sobieski, WI
Just like any other campuses. It's a little boring and sometimes things might not seem exciting. That's when your imagination kicks in and your life on campus becomes interesting.
Kia from Oshkosh, WI
The food is great!! There are many choices, from pizza hut to Culver's style grill food to freshens smoothies to create your own salad to blackhawk commons where its all you care to eat! Were getting two new buildings this year, a brand new state-of-the-art environmentally friendly business building with a einstein bagels eatery as well as a suite style dorm building with air conditioning and wi-fi. The recreation center is only a few years old and is FREE to all active students. There is always parking available to commuters and/or students who want to keep a car on campus or a free (with student ID) bus transit throughout the entire city. Were right on the river so fishing for the day or renting a kayak can make a warm sunny day enjoyable. Finally, Oshkosh is in the middle of lively cities: Appleton is only a 20 minute drive while Green Bay and Milwaukee are about an hour.
Briana from Madison, WI
Oshkosh is a great school, but make sure that you are going there to work. The classes make you work, but are very rewarding. Don't be afraid to ask for help; the library has a lot of help programs
Ariane from Menomonee Falls, WI
A good tip is to meet the people on your dorm floor! It's really fun to get to know everyone because you'll be living in such tight quarters for a year. Also, stay active and be involved on campus. There are many ways you can meet people and have fun. I joined a soccer intermural team and it was so fun to meet new people and try something new.
Megan from Oak Creek, WI
Apply early, tour the campus in the fall. Try to get a private tour if possible, there are more perks. Compare this school to others, although it will be hard to find a school cooler than UW-O. Don't overly stress about your application, but take time to be thorough in it. Make sure you talk to other UW-O students too, they can be very beneficial.
Lindsey from Lomira, WI
I would recommend to every student to get involved in the student government. It is a flawless way to meet new people, have fun, and help the university. It is also extremely important to be aware of your own needs and attend to them. If you are having any troubles with your roommate, your floor, or even a friend, talk to someone. Never be afraid to reach out to your Campus Advisor, academic advisor, or the professional advisors located on campus. They will always help you to fix a situation.
