Something unexpected that happened at UW-Fond du Lac was the amount of credits I received from high school classes. With trying to become an Olympian in Judo, I knew that I could never be a full-time student. However, I still wanted to attend college to earn my associate degree while training and working. By taking concurrent enrollment and AP classes in high school, I was able to graduate with my associate degree with an emphasis in biology in the normal two-year span.

I decided to attend UW-FDL because of the flexibility that it provided for my schedule. With my crazy training schedule, it was extremely important that school was flexible and close to my house. I have completed most of my associate degree online, which has been extremely important with all my travel. I have always been extremely interested in the biological sciences. In high school, my two favorite classes were AP Biology and the Project Lead the Way courses. I have always been interested in science, specifically genetics, and love how challenging it can be.
