Background before UWFox

I attended Menasha HS and graduated in the summer of 2010.  In middle school I was a member of the Appleton Boy Choir and went on a trip with the rest of the Choir to St. Louis, MO. We did quite a bit of sight-seeing and put on performances for various audiences while we were there. I also did volunteer work for the Salvation Army.

Why did you choose UWFox?

I chose to enroll at UWFox because of how close to home it is for me. This way, I can ease myself into college life before I go to an out-of-town university.

Have you chosen a major?

I’m presently majoring in Pre-Medicine.

What are you learning that you find interesting and rewarding at UWFox?

For me I suppose the most interesting things about being a student at UWFox are the social aspects. While I’ve been with the same general group of people all through public school, college allows me to meet people of all kinds.

What are your career plans after UWFox?

I’ll be moving on to another campus or university to continue my education, most likely UW-LaCrosse.

Other interesting things about yourself that you’d like to share?

I enjoy running and ran on cross-country team in high school. I have my black belt in karate.  My favorite things to do are playing video games and golfing with my father. I love to read and my favorite genre is science-fiction.
