Zen J

I started at UW-Rock County at age 16 because I wasn't ready to move away from my family and was afraid of all the things we hear about college before we start.

Ann L

The wonderful faculty and instructors at UW-Manitowoc prepared me, a very disengaged high school student, for a successful college career. The small class sizes and personal attention helped ease my anxiety about college and made the transfer to UW-Oshkosh much less intimidating.

Jean M

I force myself to go to the StrongWomen program, but am so glad I do. Being able to sign up for trips knowing I can keep up with younger travelers is just one of the ways StrongWomen helps me. More stamina, strength and confidence - thank you StrongWomen!

Olivia R

I joined 4-H when I was 5 years old. All of my older siblings had been involved for years already and then it was my turn. Throughout the years, I have shown dairy cattle, hogs and beef cattle, with countless crafts, baked goods, and artwork in the exhibit building.

Barbara J

While in my 70s, I read about StrongWomen and signed up, even though I had scoliosis. That was one of the best things I have done to keep up my strength, feel better about my health and a big plus ��� to meet some good friends!

Ashley M

Before graduating High School, I was not 100 percent sure which career field I wanted to pursue. I chose UW-Marshfield/Wood County (2009-2011) because it was close to home and was able to start any major. During my first semester at UWMWC, all I did was attend my classes and go home.

Ashley W

I graduated high school with no close friends, feeling alone. High school was awful, spending most of it depressed and hopeless. It was no help that my grandfather passed away, pushing me down further into that depression.

Patrick A

At UW-Marathon County, there were so many opportunities to participate in the community they foster so well, whether it is among their residents or their students traveling to school from home. I made so many friends among the staff and other students that I know will last a lifetime.

What I have really enjoyed about UW-Waukesha is how accepted I feel everywhere I go. I've been able to join many clubs that have expanded my group of friends. I love how helpful teachers are here too!
