Success Starts at UW Oshkosh
"My internship at Growing Oshkosh made me more involved in the off-campus community and provided valuable networking that enhances my environmental studies degree. The ideas of sustainability, ecological responsibility, civic engagement and the complexities of human systems were all demonstrated while working with Growing Oshkosh. I also learned how rewarding and challenging working for a nonprofit can be; I aspire to start my own organization some day with the skills I have gained.
-Faith Sadlowski, Senior, Environmental Studies
"UW Oshkosh faculty and staff made my experience less stressful and allowed me to focus more on my internship with the Wisconsin Association of FFA. Since I was able to receive credits, I will graduate a semester early!"
-Joanna Warunek, Junior, Radio-TV-Film
"Throughout my internship with Disney I learned how to take a chance and go for it. It wasn't easy to leave home for six months, but the life experiences and networking I did was worth it in the end. Disney taught me to always be professional, even in the hardest times. I truly do love my job and everything it has to offer. I can't wait to see what long-term careers come out of this once-in-a-lifetime internship."
-Matt Ebert, Senior, Human Resources Management
