“I chose UWFox because of its small class sizes, well-equipped science labs and the personal attention I receive as a student focusing on pre-med studies. I’m now finishing my prerequisites for medical school. I spent two years in Texas and got my associate degree there to be a paramedic. I decided to come to the Fox Cities area because my two children and two grandchildren are here.”
What do you find interesting and rewarding at UWFox?
“I completed a first semester organic chemistry course in Texas and then relocated to Wisconsin. Because of the structure of UWFox’s courses, I had no problem picking up the second semester of the course here. The small lab class sizes at UWFox are a plus. For example, I was used to 77 students in one lab in Texas class versus 12 at UWFox.”
