I chose UWFox because it is close to home. I didn’t really want to go away for college because it just wasn’t something that interested me. Being close to home and my family was important. I also chose it because of the affordable tuition and the small class sizes.
I decided to major in accounting because I ended up really enjoying it my last semester of senior year. I had never taken an accounting class and wanted to major in business, so I knew I would have to take accounting eventually. The first day of accounting, I knew it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
After UWFox, I plan to transfer to UW Oshkosh to earn my bachelor’s degree in accounting. Once I earn my bachelor’s degree, I’d like to further my education by becoming a Certified Public Accountant.
Two things that I have found surprising are the number of clubs that are available and the supportiveness of each professor. I realized that there are clubs for things that I never thought of before. For example, there is a ballroom dance club. I also realized that every professor just wants to see you succeed and they will help you to the best of their ability.
