I began classes at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County in the Spring Semester of 2010. I had no previous college credits and I was in my 40's. I was unsure at first, starting slowly in a program for returning adult students that offered more flexibility, but I realized my first dream as I graduated with honors in 2013, then enrolling at UW Milwaukee. I was awarded a Bachelor's Degree with honors in December 2015, realizing a second dream. Without flexible scheduling and online options, as well as some great professors, I would not have been able to complete my college education, which is very important to me as a personal attainment.
