HOLDEN LAW Transfer Student Business Administration/Marketing Concentration Class of 2021

I talked to a transfer advisor multiple times while still a student at Lake Superior College (LSC). Once I graduated from LSC, we figured out what the best plan would be, and I’ve been working on it since. The transfer process from LSC was easy, and UWS had what I was looking for. Attending UW-Superior has been great! I have enjoyed the school and the programs here. I really found what I was looking for when I started working with the Athletic Department taking photos and video at games. I also make recruiting videos and content for our social media accounts. I was also lucky enough to help run our Instagram account (@uwsathletics) where I focused on making meaningful posts each day during the season. I have grown a great amount working for the Athletic Department and my professional skills and marketing experience have both excelled. The Athletic Department was not the main reason I came to UWS, but it has been the best thing to happen to me while here at UWS.


ERIKAWHITE Online Student Health and Wellness Management Class of 2022

I wanted to finish my degree and needed a flexible online program to keep my work schedule. I almost resigned myself to earning an associate degree, but changed my mind when I found the online Health and Wellness Management program at UW-Superior. It allowed me to complete a bachelor’s degree and get credit for most of the classes I had already taken. I attended a different college before – not online – and I actually did not experience the amount of support I have received from my instructors and advisor here. It’s a good feeling when the people at the other end truly want you to succeed, and they treat you like an individual, not a number. I hope to use my degree to make a career change. I currently work in telecommunications, but I want to follow my passion to become a community health advocate or health wellness coach.
