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.
