Oshkosh is located in Winnebago County, and in the center of the state of Wisconsin where the Fox River connects Lake Winnebago on one side, and Lake Butte des Morts on the other. The area of Oshkosh had humble beginnings with fur and logging trades. It was the growth of the lumber industry here that was responsible for the majority of the city’s growth. Like many industries to come, the waterways and railways helped Oshkosh develop and thrive. By the late 1800’s, Oshkosh had become the third largest city in Wisconsin. Today, Oshkosh is home to big business such as Oshkosh B’Gosh, Bemis packaging, and Oshkosh Corporation. Unemployment rates in Oshkosh are ranked lower than the national average.

University of Wisconsin Oshkosh
UW Oshkosh is one of the city’s largest employers and also ranks as one of the best colleges in the Midwest according to the 2016 edition of “Best Colleges & Regional Universities.” Tuition costs here are average compared to other state universities. Oshkosh has a population of 66,550 according to the most recent census. Only 25% of that population has a bachelor’s degree, which is low compared to other WI cities. However, Oshkosh does have one of the largest proportions of doctorate degrees. Does the higher percentage of Doctorate degrees mean fewer people file bankruptcy? No. A financial crisis that leads to bankruptcy does not discriminate based upon education; it can happen to anyone, at any time in life.
