Earning my Associates Degree from UW-Marathon County was an integral part of my educational and career path. I learned the true basics of building and cultivating business and personal connections. The time I invested there paid off in many ways. Initially it allowed me the freedom to transfer to a larger four year university of my choice in Wisconsin. It also allowed me to manage my financial stability while earning my undergraduate degrees. Currently that investment is still paying off with the knowledge and sense of community I garnered while attending UW-Marathon County.
