The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley has announced that it is hosting a special event for adults interested in finding out more about earning a college degree through the Menasha campus. The "Open House and Transfer Information Night" is being held on Tuesday, April 29, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the UWFox campus. The event is free and open to the public, and is being held in the Emeritus Room.

Jeff Mueller and Jill Gordee, Adult Student Services Advisors at UWFox, are hosting the event. "It's a great opportunity for adults - anyone over 22 years of age, in this case - to find out about how to obtain a UW degree. Interested individuals can take a big step toward fulfilling their dream of earning a UW degree by attending this Open House. Those who should attend are adult students currently enrolled in a college degree program and those who wish to learn more about the opportunities available for them."

"In addition to finding out about how to get the best start toward a UW degree at UWFox, those who join us can also find out about our collaborative four-year degree programs…how they can earn a bachelor's degree without ever having to leave our campus," Mueller offers. "There are a lot of adults working full-time or have families to take care of, that are 'place-bound'…they don't have the time to spend commuting to a campus outside the Fox Cities, to attend classes while they work on a degree. We have a range of options here at UWFox - including late afternoon and evening classes - that adults can take a look at to see if they fit their needs," Mueller explains.

"We'll have staff members from UWFox explaining our own programs. The big bonus to this special night is that we'll also have campus representatives from UW Oshkosh, UW-Platteville, UW-Stout, UW-Green Bay, and the Bellin School of Nursing present and available to meet with those who want more information about their respective programs," Mueller said.

Representatives from the respective campuses are expected to provide information about:

  • UW-Fox Valley, offering general education classes for transfer into many four-year degrees; an Associate of Arts and Sciences Degree; certificate in Business, International Studies or Environmental Studies; a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (through UW-Platteville), a B.L.S. in Organizational Management (through UW Oshkosh).
  • The Bellin College of Nursing, presenting their Bachelor of Science in Nursing, with general education courses toward that degree available at UWFox.
