1. Tell us something about yourself. Help us to get to know you. One paragraph.
I may come across as shy or quiet but when I get to know someone I can be very talkative. I like to play sports and any kind of games whether it’s video games or board games. I have yet to join a club or sport, but I plan to eventually.

2. What surprised you about your first semester?
I was surprised by living in a dorm. I haven’t stayed away from home long, much less alone. After the first semester I adapted to the dorm life and kind of like how convenient being on campus is.

3. What do you know now that you didn't know before you attended UW Oshkosh? Tell us something specific you learned.
How the meal plans work. During the times I visited the meal plans weren't explained clearly, but I’m understanding it now. Also all the help services on campus like the math lab, writing lab, and getting tutors. I passed my first semester with the help of all the services and will for sure use them in the future.
