Additional Resources and Services
An Oshkosh Student Association Initiative, the late night service and extension of current city services, serve to provide students with a safe, convenient, cheaper and greener mode of transportation. As the importance of safety on campuses nationwide increases, this program is one way that will assist students with their own safety, to and from campus. Routes are designed to focus on the campus and the needs of the students, whether their destination is entertainment, employment, necessity, or academics. As gas prices continue to rise; and insurance rates increase; and maintenance costs soar; this program will save the students money by offering a far cheaper alternative than using a personal vehicle. As a university that is committed to the highest of green standards, this initiative aligns with our campus sustainability plan.

United Council has focused on issues such as tuition, financial aid, recruitment and retention of students underrepresented on campus, and student rights. A cornerstone of the organization’s work includes educating students, other members of campuses, and the greater community on issues relevant to post-secondary education, developing and training student leaders, and organizing students around student issues. United Council also provides a united voice for students in state government, the Board of Regents, and other state boards and commissions.
