UW Oshkosh public relations students create campaign to fight childhood cancer

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 17:01:39 +0000

With one in 285 children in Wisconsin diagnosed with cancer before the age of 20, students at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh are igniting action with purpose to raise awareness about the issues surrounding childhood cancer research. Five UW Oshkosh public relations students have been participating in the year-long Bateman campaign competition put on by the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). Their campaign, Ignite Action With Purpose, features two events and a comprehensive public relations plan. The students are working for With Purpose, a nonprofit that is dedicated to ensuring children with cancer have safe and effective treatment options. “Even though childhood cancer is a difficult topic to discuss it is something that needs to be talked about,” said Catie Schultz, a member of the Bateman team. The founder of With Purpose, Erin Benson, started With Purpose after her son Sam was diagnosed with cancer and she learned that only four new drugs have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for childhood cancer treatment in the last 30 years. The students’ campaign goal is to inspire and encourage young adults in the Oshkosh community to get involved with the fight against childhood cancer. “We are trying to increase awareness of With Purpose’s mission and educate the Oshkosh community about the lack of childhood cancer research in order to ignite local, youth-led change,” Monica Salmeri, a member of the Bateman team, said. Paint with Purpose On Feb. 23, community members can Paint With Purpose. This all-day paint event takes place at Fire Escape in Oshkosh from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. During the event 15 percent of proceeds will benefit With Purpose. Attendees will have the option to donate their artwork to childhood cancer patients at local hospitals. On Feb. 24, the community is invited to a social at Mahoney’s Restaurant and Bar in Oshkosh from noon to 3 p.m. where donated artwork will be displayed and attendees will hear from With Purpose founder Erin Benson. There will also be a drawing for prizes from local vendors.

UWO to host more than 900 for annual Oshkosh Placement Exchange

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 15:15:46 +0000

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will open its doors to hundreds of guests Feb. 22-25 to host the Oshkosh Placement Exchange (OPE). OPE is a national, higher education job placement exchange hosted by the Department of Residence Life and Gruenhagen Conference Center at UW Oshkosh. This is the 39th annual event–more than 900 guests are expected this year. The OPE is a job-placement event drawing hundreds of candidates from around the United States for student affairs positions at institutions from all corners of the country. University employers set up camp at Gruenhagen for what has easily become one of the largest higher education job placement exchanges in the nation. “Each and every year we celebrate the arrival of the hundreds of guests who will descend upon our campus, and place their trust in us to manage and execute the highest quality placement exchange possible,” said Gruenhagen Conference Center Director Marc Nylen. This year, 125 colleges, universities and residential boarding schools are registered as employers, many of which bring interview teams. About 340 candidates will be attending, Nylen said. “We strive to provide a placement exchange that offers a professional venue at which colleges, universities and residential boarding schools can interview qualified job-seeking applicants for positions within the field of student affairs, and most specifically in the areas of housing, residential living, student activities, student leadership, fraternity and sorority advisement, multicultural student advising and diversity education,” Nylen said. “We are honored to host this distinguished event each and every year.” Learn more: Oshkosh Placement Exchange Take a look through photos from OPE 2017
