The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is hosting an “Open House” for prospective adult students on Tuesday, April 14, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The “Open House” is for adults who always wanted to find out more about what it takes to enroll in or return to college, or how to earn a degree, or how to transfer credits from past courses, or how to pay for college.  

“This is a great opportunity to look closer at what is available at UWFox,” according to Tammy Brunette, adult student coordinator. “Student Service advisors and faculty from UWFox will be available for questions. Representatives from the various UWFox Collaborative Bachelor’s Degree programs will be on hand during the Open House to provide information as well as to answer questions about their respective programs.

The Open House is providing optional campus tours at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Prospective adult students can come to the campus to see what UWFox has to offer in the way of facilities, learning opportunities, associate and bachelor degree programs, transfer possibilities, financial aid, college costs, and flexible scheduling.

Members of the campus’ faculty and staff will be on hand to explain programs and showcase facilities. Campus Executive Officer and Dean, Dr. Jim Perry, will also be available to answer questions as well.

Besides offering an outstanding freshman and sophomore collegiate curriculum and the Associate of Arts and Science Degree, UWFox also offers five bachelor’s degrees through collaborations with various four-year UW campuses – with the classes for these bachelor’s degrees all offered at the Menasha campus.

Bachelor’s degrees in “Organizational Administration” and “Leadership Development” are offered through UW Oshkosh. “Mechanical Engineering” and “Electrical Engineering” bachelor’s degrees are offered through UW-Platteville. And, a B.S. in “American Studies” is offered through UW-Stevens Point.

During the Open House the UWFox Jazz Ensemble will be on hand to add musical entertainment, light snacks will be available and the Weis Earth Science Museum – the state’s official mineralogical museum – will be open for visitors to view.
