Drumroll please. On behalf of all the student bloggers, I am pleased to introduce our brand new Admissions Blog. Since we’re starting from scratch, we thought it’d be a good idea to start with the basics about our blog… and what is more basic than the ABC’s?
A-dvice. Look no further for tips and advice about going to college – specifically UW Oshkosh. As current students, we’ve experienced the good the bad and the ugly and want to help ease your worries. It’s all good!
B-logging. It’s our way of telling you what actually happens on campus. If you ever have an idea for something you’d like us to blog about, let us know! We’re always up for a challenge.
C-onnect with students who have been in your shoes. All of us are current UW Oshkosh students willing to share our college experiences with you.
D-ive into an entry… or two. We have a ton of stuff to talk about with you. With so many topics, you may find it hard to pick just one entry to read, so why not read them all?
E-xpectations. Learn about what to expect when you enter campus. We’ll fill you in on what you need to know so you can walk through campus with confidence, avoid potential mishaps and impress everyone in your residence hall with your wealth of knowledge about the campus.
F-ind your niche. All of us are involved in different things and are having very unique college experiences. Imagine yourself in our shoes and try on a few activities before you even get here. Sooner or later, you’ll be joining in on all the fun. Where do you see yourself?
G-enuine. The blog entries are our own and represent our individual views of UW Oshkosh and campus life. We tell it like it is.
H-unger. Whether you’re looking for info on campus food – it is delicious by the way – or an easy-to-make recipe for when you’re hanging out in the res halls, look no further. We’re trying every food and recipe to give you a taste for what UW Oshkosh has to offer in the meal department.
I-ndecisive about where to go to college? We’ll tell you our reasons for choosing UW Oshkosh and offer suggestions about how to find your best higher education fit: even if it may not be at UWO.
J-oin in on the fun. Our blogs are a way for us to talk with you, not at you. We’re always glad to hear from you, so share your comments. We read each of them. And we like getting them.
K-now the ins-and-outs of college life. Check back often for the latest and greatest campus survival tips and advice.
L-isteners. That’s what we are. We might be the ones blogging, but we’re really concerned with you getting the information you want.
M-ythbusters. Have you heard any horror stories about college? Of course you have. But don’t worry, our blog will give you the facts and set the record straight.
N-ot sure where to start reading? The profiles of our bloggers can give you a good idea of who we are and what we like to write about. Another good place to start is by selecting a category or keyword that catches your eye.
O-ut with the old and in with the new. You start college with a clean slate. Wish you would have joined more clubs in high school, gotten better grades or attended more events? Now you can. We’ll be sharing tons of fun things we’re involved in so you can get ideas of what you’d like to look into when you get here. If there’s something that you want to learn more about, let us know.
P-ride. We’re proud to be Titans; therefore, there is no shortage of enthusiasm in any of our posts.
Q-uestions? Don’t be afraid to ask them. It’s like when you were in elementary school and the teacher said, “Ask questions, because chances are someone else has the same one!” We’re betting you probably have a lot of the same questions. Plus, we can’t think of everything. Your questions will help us figure out future blog topics.
R-elax. College is a great place filled with people who want to see you succeed. Enjoy the ride!
S-eize all the opportunities on campus. From advisors to professors to student organizations, there are resources everywhere to help you with the academic side of college life. There are also so many clubs and special events to go to that you won’t be able to decide what you want to do first! No boredom here.
T-ake a few minutes every day to stop back and see what we’re up to. We are out on the campus daily gathering fun information to share with you.
U-niversity of Wisconsin- Oshkosh rocks. Enough said.
V-ariety. We practice what we preach. When we say there are tons of activities to get involved in, we mean it. And we will use these blogs to prove it to you. Never a dull moment!
W-e will always be looking for new, fun ways to share information with you—whether it’s through photos, videos, lists or stories, we’ll keep it interesting.
X-ray vision. What really makes this campus tick is more than the buildings and superficial facts. As bloggers, we’ll give you an inside look of our campus and show you how it has impacted and changed our lives.
Y-ou. This blog is for you and your college experience. It is intended to help you make one of the most important decisions of your life: where to go to college. We hope it’s here – but it might not be. Even if you don’t decide on UWO, you should still be able to take some helpful hints about college life with you.
Z-zzzz. Rest assured that we are all exciting people and our blogs will not put you to sleep. Unless you’re reading them at 4 a.m., in which case there are no guarantees.
So those are our ABC’s! We hope you enjoy our blog.
