Graduation is approaching fast! Oshkosh has so many gorgeous locations, making it tough to pick the perfect spot for your graduation photos! We're here to offer inspiration and suggestions on places to capture those well-earned photos!

UWO Signs

Out front of Horizon Village located on Algoma Blvd, is a large University of Wisconsin Oshkosh sign - which is a perfect spot for a headshot or full body photo. This photo definitely captures your time on UW Oshkosh's campus! It is best to take the photo while standing in front it to see the full text. There are multiple on campus to choose from but this one is my personal favorite!
