4-H has been a life-changing organization for me. As a teen, 4-H was an inclusive leadership experience that taught me life skills like planning, organization, public speaking and collaboration. As an adult, I sought 4-H for my children to instill skills and belonging they don't find elsewhere.

Before starting this program, I always tried to make healthy choices. Thanks to this program, I am more aware of what I'm buying. I make sure to pack and prepare a more balanced meal; plus, making a grocery list has helped me budget and save! Thank you!

I am a sophomore at UW-Marshfield/Wood County. I chose to attend UWMWC because it was close to my hometown, is affordable, and because of the small class sizes.

I chose UW-Fox because the price was right and it was very close to home. The small class sizes were attractive to me as a non-traditional student who had been out of school for quite some time and was somewhat nervous about sitting in huge lecture course settings.
