What some of our students say

“When I arrived here, I didn’t know anything about transferring. I didn't have target schools. By meeting with my Kings Advisor, I was able to learn everything I needed to know to prepare for transfer.”

Jaewon Myung from South Korea. Accepted by the Fashion Institute of Technology, (FIT), to major in Fashion Management.

"I've never taken art classes in the past, but here at UW Oshkosh Fox Cities, the professors use various supplies and teach different skills like drawing and painting. My favorite art classes so far have been Intermediate Drawing and Introduction to Oil Painting."

Minkyung Kim from South Korea.
