I am a sophomore at this school and overall I think this school is kind of a joke. It is basically a bigger version of my high school. Some of the courses are very helpful in my degree but a lot of them are very unprepared and are just made up as the semester goes along. What I do like though is how small the campus is and that all of the classrooms are in one building. A tip to attending this school is to ask questions about the teachers before committing to one of their classes, because there are some really lazy and unproductive teachers there.

Overall University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is a great school. I really like the experience I have had as being a student. Many people feel if they attend a two-year university they are missing out on the "freshman experience" and I thought that too, but you do have the "freshman experience." The experience differs to a 4 year campus, but you still have it. You still meet so many new people, classes are so different from high school, and you still have fun along the way. One of my most memorable experiences during my freshman year at Fox was my first day when everyone was willing to come up and speak to you. People are so open to meeting new people and getting to know you. That is one thing I have come to love about the campus is the people and their genuine friendliness. On top of having an incredible group of students the education you get and the professors you have are just as great! They try to make you the best student you can be and give you many resources to make sure you can do the best you possibly can.
