Quest I and First-Year Experience
UW Oshkosh students take courses in their first semester. Regardless of the general education requirement met by a given Quest I course, Quest I courses include elements and activities that allow students to consider and understand themselves as the newest participating members of an established learning community. Students are given regular opportunities to explore the campus, their courses, and their new environment and to both ask and reflect on their answers to the question, “Where am I now?”
