University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Reviews
I completed the Human Services Leadership program through UW-Oshkosh, which was 100% online. I found this program to be very rewarding and insightful because I was able to get the college education, without having to worry about paying to live on campus or find an apartment each year. I was able to stay home and work my school schedule around my work schedule, whereas if I had campus courses, I would have had to adjust my work schedule around my class schedule. The online program also allowed me to work alongside others who were working their way through school, so they understood what I was going through. These students I worked with came from all over and we were able to have discussions and get a variety of perspectives. The professors were very accommodating, helpful and just as attentive to us as they would have been if we were in person. Each professor wanted to get to know each student as an individual, acknowledged and respected our other outside commitments and roles.
I loved my time spent at UW Oshkosh. I felt well prepared for interviews and for beginning my career as a future educator. They provided small class sizes so I could build relationships with my professors. There were many opportunities to get in the classroom and have hands on experience. I felt prepared so I wasn't overwhelmed my first year teaching. They had great advisors to help you create resumes and practice interviews.
University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is an excellent university. You feel that you are not alone and that you can fine one who can help you if you ask your help. UW-Oshkosh taught me to balance my academic and personal lives. UW-Oshkosh also provided me with the opportunity to do scientific research in biotechnology and biochemistry which opened the doors for me for many graduate schools. With that, I am currently pursing my PhD. using the skills that I learned in UW-Oshkosh.
Nice campus. Great people! Many opportunities to explore different careers.
Very good College of Business. School is large enough that you should never be bored. Like any college experience you get what you put in both academically and socially.
I simply love UW Oshkosh. The campus is beautiful and offers lots of ways for students to get involved. Their Greek system is especially strong. They also have lots of great food/dining options.
There are only two things I regret about going to college: First, I regret not looking into/taking opportunities to pay for college with something other than student loans and also not working to pay for school while I was in college. If I had put effort into finding grants and scholarships before/during my time at college I think graduating would have been a lot less stressful and scary. I also would have chosen my living arrangements differently and gotten a better part time job, and also spent less money on frivolous things. Second, I regret not applying myself enough in class. I skated through high school easily and I think I expected to do the same in college. The problem was I couldn't and didn't know how to study effectively since I didn't have any practice. I know my not-so-stellar grades led to some missed opportunities while I was in college and probably a few after college as well. One piece of advice: don't worry about making college the best years of your life. The best years of your life means something different for everyone and for some hanging out with friends, partying, living on pennies, etc. isn't a good time. The best years of your life might be your late 20s working at a job you love and figuring out what it means to be an adult. Or it might be the years spent raising a family. Focus on making college count in lasting ways. Make great friends, take healthy risks, find your bliss, gain experience and, most importantly, learn something.
Fire Fighters this is the best bachelor degree program. Classes are online, instructors care, and college staff is very helpful - always returned my phone calls in a timely manor and were able to help. I had been out of school for awhile and was able to get on track with their help.
I loved this school! I did the online program which I was able to balance with my work and home life. The professors overall were very helpful and very much enjoyed my classes. I had no issues with financial aid either and if I had any questions I could always get answers.
I feel that I received a quality education at this school and that there were plenty of opportunities for me to develop skills that have helped me secure employment and be successful.
