What the Admissions Blog is About

Current students from WSU share their stories and perspectives about common interests of potential first-year students. Topics will specifically complement the Admissions journey from interested to enrolled, and posts will also help prepare students for the transition to college.  

Posts will generally:

  • Demonstrate reasons to attend WSU 

    • Quality education with good career outcomes 

    • Fun things to do on campus and in Winona 

    • Convenient living experience on campus 

    • Sense of community and feeling of belonging at WSU 

    • Ways to make WSU affordable 

  • Bring attention to unique opportunities at WSU and in Winona 

  • Address potential fears/barriers to choosing WSU 

  • Guide students through admissions process and transition into their first semester at WSU 

Who's the Audience?

Always keep your audience in mind when writing posts.

  • May be from large or small high schools/cities, may be from Winona or live several hours away 

  • Many are first-generation students who are unfamiliar with college resources and processes
