December 4, 2019

Kwik Trip released their beer, called Glazer Bean, on Nov. 18. They partnered with the Wisconsin brewery, Karben4 Brewing, to create this donut- and coffee-inspired beer. Kwik Trip only shipped out 1,900 cases of this new beverage, which is simply not enough supply to meet the demand. People want...

The challenges of lowering student loan interest rates

Mackenzie Karau, Letter to the editor

December 4, 2019

Student loan interest rates often mislead the borrower and can quickly add up over time. Interest rates on student loans should be reduced; however, this seemingly straightforward resolution results in both possible positive and negative outcomes to our economy. According to the Department of Education,...

UWO’s icy slipup

Alyson Oda, Letter to the editor

December 4, 2019

Walking around campus right after it snows, I always find myself and seeing others slipping on ice. Although most of the sidewalks get shoveled on campus, there still seems to be some extremely icy spots. The university has sent out emails suggesting we should walk like penguins to avoid falling...

Wisconsin students are getting bombarded with student loans at one of the highest amounts across the nation, but that could change.

Margherite Pettenuzzo

November 15, 2019

At UW Oshkosh, out-of-state students and international students do not experience the same luxuries as students who live in the state of Wisconsin. For someone like me who chose to go to an out-of-state school, it is not hard to forget all the things these students give up by going to a college that...

The highway to commuter success

The highway to commuter success

Julia Thompson, Student

October 3, 2019

As the new semester begins and I get back into the habit of leaving my Appleton residence at 7 o’clock each morning, I’d like to steer the campus’ attention to an often forgotten group of students: commuters. Currently at UW Oshkosh, only 15% of first- and second-year students choose not to...

Trump’s trade war escalating between the U.S. and China

Sarah Marx, student

May 9, 2019
