I have enjoyed and benefited from the Continuing Ed courses such as Ballroom Dance and Kayaking. I have also participated in the Red Cedar Choir, a community choir opportunity offered through UW-Barron County. I have enjoyed seminars, concerts, theatre and UFest.

I began my post high school education at UW-Barron County, a nice two year campus in my home town. It was the obvious choice, affording me the opportunity to save money while living at home and continuing to work.

Impact Story

Lindy

I was a student from 2011-2013 at UW-Marinette. I was put out of my comfort zone and taught to think. To question. To take action. To stand up for people. I will NEVER view a commercial again without wanting to write a three page report on what it really means.

The UW Colleges has helped me become a student voice for others. I've learned so much from professors. I would say thank you to Amy Grams, a professor of Sociology, who really taught me the true meaning of being a student voice. How one voice can make a difference.

I'm a compulsive volunteer, and I LOVE UW-Extension for many reasons. I love to learn, and The Learning Store is my go to place for information. It is informative and accurate, so I have no problem sending people that way.

I first connected with UW-Marathon County after retirement when I took the marvelous Good Ideas program in January. Professors like Ron Lippi, Jacob Roseman, and Harlan Grande opened up new wonder for me. Then Tim Buchnoltz and Sara Rudolph exposed me to great jazz and theater.

Impact Story

Sara

I don't know where I would be without having attended UW-Waukesha. I have always been good at school, but I never truly enjoyed it. After only a few weeks at UW-Waukesha, I knew I belonged there. The professors helped me when needed and made the environment open and friendly.
