Hey Everybody! My name is Jessica and I am a sophomore at UW Oshkosh majoring in Elementary and Special Education.
Making the transition from a high school graduating class of 12 students to the 3rd largest University in Wisconsin was a bit overwhelming, but it didn’t take long for me to get involved. Being active on campus is essential for me, whether it is participating in clubs/organizations, working a few jobs on campus, or cheering on our Titans! Some things I am involved in include: the Student Council for Exceptional Children, Student WEA, Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society, Golden Key Honor Society, being an Odyssey Captain and being a Peer Mentor for the University Studies Program. Getting involved helped me to make UW Oshkosh my new home away from home.
When I’m not in school or working in the Admissions Office, I really enjoy being at home on my family farm. I like to play with the calves and pigs, drive tractors and, of course, hang out with my family! I am an avid supporter of my community and my FFA chapter. I also enjoy mentoring young children and volunteering in the community.
Deciding to attend UWO was one of the best decisions I could’ve made. Through my involvement I have met so many amazing people and helped with incredible events. I have had so many wonderful opportunities that have allowed me to grow not only as a student, but as an individual.
If you have any questions about UWO or college life, please feel free to send me a message or “like” my Facebook page: Jessica at UWO. I hope to talk to you soon!
