Back in the 70's I attended UW-Fox Valley before going on to Madison to complete my degree in Sociology. I worked downtown Appleton part time and I lived at home, which was great because I needed to save as much money as I could for my tuition expenses. Fox helped me learn time management skills as well as made friends and helped me with confidence in learning new things. I loved the geology professor Dr. Weis and that is where I met a new friend Karen Anderson whose father was the Theatre Professor! I recommend UW-Fox Valley to anyone who wants to transform themselves into a person who wants to learn, engage in their community, and become a better citizen in today's busy world!
