I attended UW-Marathon County for two years before transferring to UW-Madison through the Connections Program. I was able to fulfill my general education requirements, in addition to the more rigorous pre-med requirements such as Organic Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus 2. The lectures were engaging, and the professors were willing to meet with me outside of class for clarifications. UWMC also offered ample opportunities to connect with the community and get involved in my area of interest. I participated in an pre-med internship at Wausau Family Medicine, and was offered employment at the UWMC Math Lab, Greenhouse, and Biology Department. My success at UW-Madison can be heavily attributed to my time at UWMC, and I continue to look back at those years fondly. Go Huskies!
