Why did you choose UW-Barron County? I chose UW-BC for several reasons. The campus is small, close to home and very affordable.

What surprised you the most about UW-Barron County when you arrived on campus?  The thing that surprised me the most was how welcoming everyone was. I was very nervous for college, but I was reassured right away. Not only my fellow students but the faculty and staff were all very nice and cared about me.


Why did you choose your program/major? I am still in the process of finding a major. There are endless possibilities! How could you ever pick just one?

In addition to being a student, what takes up your free time? I play volleyball for the Chargers. I serve on the Student Government Association, and I work in the fitness center as part of the work-study program. I also enjoy camping and swimming.

Who has been your favorite professor or staff member? I don't think I could pick just one faculty member. All of them are friendly and care about getting to know each of their students.

What is one piece of advice you have for incoming UW-Barron County students? Go to class!
