Sharing your life philosophy
To help celebrate the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s 140th anniversary in 2011-2012, alumni, faculty, staff and students are invited to share their daily life philosophy by writing a personal essay as part of the This We Believe at UW Oshkosh project.

In collaboration with the national “This I Believe” public dialog about belief — based on the popular 1950s radio series of the same name hosted by Edward R. Murrow — members of the University community are encouraged to share 350- to 500-word essays about their personal beliefs and core values. Learn more at
