UW Oshkosh gave me an opportunity where otherNot so brightCommunications
UW Oshkosh gave me an opportunity where other universities did not. Teachers saw my potential and invested in me. I had to seek out help but once i connected with the right people, administratively and in my social life, things started to fall into place. I am by no means a smart kid but my success has no gotten me two internships with prominent companies and I am applying for Grad school soon. Oshkosh overall is what you make it. Work hard, seek help, they're resources out there if you just search.

Question
I consider my two years at UWO toSociology
I consider my two years at UWO to be the worst two of my life. The amount of xenophobic behavior I encountered from EVERYONE (fellow students, professors, supervisors) was off-the-charts. I was once shoved into a wall and screamed at for an alleged social infraction. One of my professors (with whom I thought I was on good terms) publicly accused me of cheating and then never apologized. Another professor publicly trashed an article I had chosen for discussion despite having approved it when I e-mailed it to her. I have been left stranded in unfamiliar neighborhoods by students who claimed to be my friends. One of my fellow employees was terminated from her on-campus job after without any probation period given. And in fact, her supervisor had promised not to terminate her, so the supervisor lied to her face. The student government is riddled with red tape and biases; in fact, it has gotten to the point where a rule was broken in such a manner that would justify a student suing the school. DO NOT waste years of your life at this institution! You can get all the education you need elsewhere!

Question
The campus is clean, the professors are great,AverageEducation
The campus is clean, the professors are great, the administration is awful. Expect to get more advice on what classes to take from your professors than your academic advisers, the financial aid department will lose your paperwork and blame you for it. The requirements to graduate are more than can be met in 4 years, expect to have trouble registering for required classes, and don't expect any sympathy from the schools department heads. I have a friend who was kicked out of the college of education just because he's a veteran who refused to take their crap.
