The are the organizers of your Odyssey experience. They are UW Oshkosh students who were chosen to lead this program. Their goal is to make your Odyssey, your transition to college, informational and fun. Each Captain is in charge of a different group of Odyssey Leaders. The Captains play a vital role during The Beginning assisting in your first transition to the University.
These are students who have volunteered their time to be a part of the Odyssey Experience. Many of them have been Odyssey Leaders before, so this is not the first time they have been part of the Odyssey Experience. Others enjoyed their experience last year and decided to give their time to make this years Odyssey Experience as good as theirs.
