  10. 11. After working in a mill for almost 15 years, I searched for the opportunity to go from having a job to having a career . So when I returned to college, I chose the Adult Degree Program at UW-Green Bay. My academic experience with UW-Green Bay was instrumental in opening that career door for me at Kimberly-Clark. The pinnacle of my academic career finally came in 2007 when I graduated cum laude with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I believe that UWGB’s Adult Degree Program is “hands down” the best for quality, flexibility, and staff support. Without the unwavering support of my advisor I’m sure I would not be telling my story today. John Stilp

  16. 17. Without this program I wouldn’t be the person I am today either in my personal or professional life. The courses I took allowed me to open my mind to new ideas and to not be afraid to take on new challenges. Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “Most of us go to our graves with our music still inside of us.” I’m thankful to the Adult Degree Program and to UW-Green Bay for assisting me in getting some of my music out.
