Alumni Success Stories
Read the most recent news and announcements for alumni.
Not only do we want to assist you in reconnecting with your alma mater but also in making new connections. It is exciting to be involved in UW Oshkosh’s continued growth and success.
One of the most rewarding ways to get involved with your alma mater and rekindle your Titan spirit is to volunteer. Each year, hundreds of alumni from every walk of life and corner of the globe give back to UW Oshkosh by mentoring current students, serving on committees or by hosting alumni gatherings. Whether your involvement touches a few friends or a few hundred, you are making a positive difference in the lives of others.
- Move In Day: If you are willing and able, we need at least 100 grad/alumni/faculty/staff volunteers to make this event a success. We need volunteers to demonstrate their Titan Pride by assisting with greeting students and their families, answering questions, providing directions and a variety of other customer service functions. Contact us for more information.
- UWO Sesquicentennial Picnic: Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. UWO is turning 150 and we are celebrating with a huge campus-wide open house and picnic along with exhibits and entertainment. Many volunteers will be needed that day. Submit your offer to volunteer here.
