2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is definitely not the best. Most homes are run down and dirty and the landlords like to take advantage of the poor college student.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lot's of options outside of the college dining! Some are far but some are really close and a lot of places deliver!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I think the administration is strict on the important things that they need to be strict on!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's definitely not the best and is very confusing.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's college so there will always be parties going on, but what's nice is the parties are there if you want them and if you don't you don't have to see or hear them. The parties are never out of control which is a big plus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's college food. That being said, its not gourmet but it's definitely better than other colleges! I don't mind eating here everyday.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in one of the newly renovated dorms and I love it!! It's very nice and has a home like feel to it.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus and only upper class man are allowed to live off campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you love jimmy johns, you will love it here.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Pretty lenient as long as you don't deliberately break the rules you'll be fine.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't get what I thought I was going to get. Make sure you fill out FASFA early.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: House parties are busted by police a lot and need cars to go to bars.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: If eating at Blackhawk for more than two days will get up set stomach.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshmen live in same building with floors alternating between guys and girls. Residents halls are old.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: While there are many preventative measures taken by the university (Emergency stations, security check-ins, safe walks, etc.) there have been a significant number of attacks on students this past semester. Almost every girl you see carries pepper spray. I still feel safe walking at night, but that may be due to the fact that I am a bigger guy than most.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Pros: Easy process, my place came with a parking lot, cost is in the ballpark of average (some are cheaper while others are quite a bit more expensive. Lots of places to rent. Landlords send out flyers to advertise and show you options.

Cons: Landlord experience may differ dramatically. (Some are pricks while others are very nice.)

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have a CJ major and the workload & curriculum are very reasonable. One thing that could be improved would be adding professors, since CJ is one of the larger majors on campus while there are only 6 professors for the whole major.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are very knowledgeable in their fields and are willing to provide you with extra help. Many of my courses intertwine with courses from other fields, allowing me as a student to make connections between different fields and how they effect one another. Class sizes are what you would expect. Gen Eds are in large pit classes, while others are in smaller rooms allowing students to interact more often.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: There's a wide range of venues for nightly entertainment at UW Oshkosh. If you like big social gathers and meeting tons of new people — we have that. If you like a chill place to knock a few back and hear some good music — we have that too.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Be selective in the company you choose to lease from. Some of the bigger companies don't have the time or resources to take care of you. My landlord is wonderful and manages his time and employees effectively. Having a smaller company or individual seems to create a better experience for off-campus housing.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Our college town has a great focus on community. We collaborate on many events and there are always events to partake in. My favorite is the farmer's market on Saturdays in summer. The music scene is grooving and flourishing. Everyone brings a rich culture to the town whether by art, history, music, business, rich food or community events. Its great to be a part of something so thriving.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been many incidents on campus which have caused me to no longer feel safe on campus. I do not think the school has done anything to try and decrease the number of incidents.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did receive some financial aid but I feel I could have received more.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There is very little school sport spirit that I am aware of.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is typical college housing. I think they try to enforce unnecessary rules too much.
