UW Oshkosh will host an open house education fair for adults who are interested in earning an online or on-campus bachelor’s or master’s degree.

The education fair, Start Here Start Now™, will be held Wednesday, July 24 from 8:30–10:30 a.m. and Thursday, July 25 from 5:30–7:30 p.m. Both sessions will be held on the UW Oshkosh campus in Reeve Memorial Union Ballroom.

“Start Here Start Now™ is a great opportunity for people to come to campus and learn what UW Oshkosh has to offer,” said Wendy Van Ahn, program coordinator. “People can come, gather information, stay as long or as briefly as they’d like, and leave with a better understanding of how college can fit into their life.”

Representatives from a variety of academic and student services departments are participating. Attendees will be able to learn about applying to the University, the financial aid process, and choosing the program that fits their educational and career goals.

The education fair is part of UW Oshkosh’s continuing effort to make higher education more accessible to working adults. Courses are offered in a variety of formats, including weekend, daytime, evening and online.

“Many adult nontraditional students have told me that before coming to UW Oshkosh they were concerned about being successful and fitting college into their already busy lives. By attending Start Here, Start Now™, participants are provided with access to the information they are looking for, which helps them to feel less anxious.”

According to Van Ahn, one of the primary goals of Start Here Start Now™ us to show students that the campus community is supportive and welcoming.

This event is open to community, and no pre-registration is required. For more information on the education fair or for those unable to attend, visit or contact the Division of Lifelong Learning and Community Engagement at or (920) 424-3350.
