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.

The complicated history of queer representation in film

Rachel Bays, Guest Columnist

November 13, 2019

Throughout history, the negative depiction of the LGBTQ community in film has directly influenced how queer people are treated by society. During the classical Hollywood period from the early 1920s to late ‘50s, homosexuality was only insinuated through the use of stereotypes and innuendo. Men perceived...

New co-op will benefit UWO

Jacob Jossart, Letter to the Editor

November 7, 2019

UW Oshkosh, a campus with roughly 14,000 students, has been considered a food desert for a while now. For an area to be considered a food desert, it needs to be in an urban area in which it is difficult to buy affordable or quality fresh food.

Kanye West’s “Jesus is King” finally dropped on Oct. 25 after years of reveals, delays and hype. Yet for all the time Kanye put into his current project, it still manages to feel rushed and incomplete. The first track, “Every Hour,” features a typical gospel choir, just sped up a little...

As a lifetime resident of Oshkosh, the Little Oshkosh playground at Menominee Park, built by the community in 1997, was near and dear to my heart.

I returned to college to get a degree in journalism because all my life I’ve felt silenced. As the seventh out of eight children born in a blended family, I never felt like my voice was heard. This feeling continued throughout my adult life. A drug charge in 2009 sent me on a path that led to a...
