While summer is just starting for most, incoming freshman are already thinking about the 2011-12 academic year at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.

Each spring, to-be freshman and their families come to tour UW Oshkosh as part of “Odyssey: The Beginning.” The orientation program presents students with the opportunity to meet with advisers, register for fall classes, learn how to use Titan Web and become familiar with campus and all it has to offer. It also gives students and families–in separate breakout sessions–an opportunity to learn more about UW Oshkosh, financial aid and having a child who is a college student.

“Odyssey is a wonderful opportunity for our newest students to learn more about campus, start getting connected to resources, register for classes and start making UW Oshkosh home,” said Debbie Gray Patton, assistant dean of students at the University.

Incoming freshman are registered for their Odyssey session upon being admitted to UW Oshkosh and paying their first tuition deposit. This summer, about 1,800 students will make their way through the program, Patton said. Classes for the 2011-12 academic year begin Sept. 7.
