If you’re interested in finding out about how you can start working toward a bachelor’s degree, or how you can apply your previous college experience toward earning that elusive bachelor’s degree that you may have “put off” for awhile, then “UW Night” at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley could be just what you’re looking for. “UW Night” begins at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, and is being held in the UWFox Emeritus Room, located in the middle of the campus.

With UWFox serving as the host for this special event, “UW Night” is bringing together representatives from UW-Oshkosh, UW-Platteville, UW-Stevens Point, UW-Stout, and UW-Superior, who will have brief presentations about their respective bachelor’s degree opportunities conveniently available to Fox Valley residents.

While “UW Night” is free and open to the public, the campus’ Student Services Office is requesting that attendees pre-register prior to the event. UWFox Campus Executive Officer Jim Perry will officially welcome attendees and guests.

Debra Golden, Adult Student CoordinatorDebra Golden, Adult Student Coordinator at UWFox, explained why “UW Night” can be so helpful to non-traditional students, or adult learners, who are either starting or returning to college. “People who attend this event will learn about the many different opportunities they have to earn a bachelor’s degree from one of the UW System campuses.

“Fox Valley residents have a wonderful opportunity to begin – or continue - their college education at UWFox and achieve their bachelor’s degree without ever having to leave the area. The degree programs that we’ll be presenting on June 13 are specifically for the adult student who may have a lot of other obligations to deal with, and who need evening and on-line courses in order to be able to pursue and attain a bachelor’s degree.

“The UW campuses that are joining us for this event all have programs that can meet the adult student’s needs,” Golden said.

To pre-register, call the UWFox Student Services Office, 920-832-2620, or email foxinfo@uwc.edu. For more information about “UW Night,” Golden can be reached at 920-832-0114 or at debra.golden@uwc.edu.
