Why We Are Glad to be Titans
Hello, everyone! I am a Senior graduating in May 2021 with a major in Communication Studies and a minor in Public Relations. From being a tour guide and working in the Admissions office, I often get asked why I am glad that I chose to attend UWO. I love this question, but I still find it difficult to answer. I will never be able to fully describe why UW Oshkosh was the right fit for me because I still find myself being surprised by all of the student resources. It is nearly impossible for me to describe how grateful I am for the past 4 years, so naturally, I turned to some of my peers. I asked 11 of my friends why they are glad that they chose to become a Titan, and I managed to compile some great answers.
