The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is gearing up for the fall semester’s “Return to Learn” program, which targets potential non-traditional students.
The program will take place on Wednesday, November 3, 4-7 p.m. at the campus, 1478 Midway Road, Menasha, in the campus’ Emeritus Room.
“Return to Learn” is a chance for interested adults to find out about the campus and ask questions related to returning to college, said Jeff Mueller, Adult Student Services Coordinator.
The three hour program will start at 4 p.m. with campus tours conducted by UWFox student “Ambassadors.” At 5 p.m., Campus Dean Jim Perry will deliver a presentation introducing UWFox and outlining the advantages of enrolling.
Following the speech, participants will have the chance to interact with a student and faculty panel, which will discuss the benefits of smaller class sizes, tutoring, lower costs of a two-year campus, and how to transfer credits.
Jeff Kuepper, a representative from the Campus Activity Board will be on hand to discuss student clubs and organizations.
At 6 p.m., Brenda Rickert, Student Services Senior Advisor, will talk about financial aid, including scholarships, grants and loans.
At 6:15 p.m., Jeff Mueller and Tina Koch from Student Services, Wendy Dittmann from UW-Stout’s Industrial Management Program, Beth Richards from UW-Oshkosh’s Organizational Administration program, and Cathleen Bronold from UW-Platteville’s Mechanical Engineering Program will be available to answer questions about applying for college and the process of transferring credits for their respective programs.
“A lot of times, I think a session like this plants the seed and we see them about a year or so later,” said Mueller. “I think the big draw for it is it makes college look attainable for a lot of people.”
