Why did you choose UWFox?
I chose to go to school here to complete my gen eds. Since I didn’t go to college right after high school, I thought it would be smart to start at UWFox.
Why did you choose your program/major?
Before I came to UWFox I worked in the trades as a millwright’s apprentice, and I really enjoyed that kind of work.
What do you plan to do after UWFox?
This will be my last semester at UWFox, after which I will be transferring to and attending UW-Stout for construction management.
What is one piece of advice you have for incoming UWFox students?
If I have any advice to give, don’t wait until you are lost in a class to ask questions. The professors at UWFox are always there to help you get through whatever problems you are having in class, so don’t ever be afraid to ask for help.
What is something unexpected or surprising that has happened during your time at UWFox?
I was surprised by how friendly and approachable the faculty is at UWFox. All of the professors I have are very knowledgeable, and they are always very helpful whenever I had a question regarding classes.
