Austin was a student at WESLI back in 2011 and now he is a graduate student at UW-Whitewater. He is studying operation supply chains for his Masters of Business Administration. He's taking a number of classes in Accounting and Operations management.
University of Wisconsin - Whitewater is located in Whitewater, Wisconsin and is known for its business and education programs. Students love UW-Whitewater because they offer small classes and students get a lot of one on one attention. The campus is fairly small - there are around 11,000 students on campus - so it's easy to find your way around - and it's beautiful and safe! Here's what he had to say about his time at school:
What do you like to do when you are not studying?
I go to church every Sunday morning and go to gym three or four times a week.
How does life as a college student compare to life as a WESLI student?
The biggest difference is almost my classmates are American even though there are a few international students. Also, some American students speak fast in the class; however, sometimes we cannot receive all information. In addition, because of graduate program, some academic vocabulary I need to memorize several times. If I do not, during the class, I can not really understand what professors are talking about. As a university student, I have to spend much time to study more than at WESLI. It is tough, but I can improve my skills more.
Do you have any advice for WESLI students who want to go to college?
If someone want to study Whitewater, I think they have to be ready to take this new challenges. Then, to join some groups to make friendship with American or other international students, it's a good way to have a great university life. By the way, buy a car if you can.
