When the Time is Right

"I knew when the time was right for me to pursue my next degree it would undoubtedly be through UW-Green Bay. I saw first-hand how they personalize a learning environment and work with students to achieve their individual goals. In addition, they can provide this quality education at an affordable price which was a huge factor for me as well."
