Why Grad School at UW-Whitewater?
"I chose the UW-Whitewater School of Graduate studies be-cause of the strength of the program and its incredibly convenient proximity. I feel especially grateful to have gotten to be a part of the Counselor Education program because of the wonderful relationships I made with my fellow students and the faculty while I was in school."
The importance I see in building relationships and connections no matter where I go in my professional career, is at the core of what I gained during my time in my graduate program. The faculty there didn’t just pass on knowledge to us. They connected, they cared and supported me through all ups and downs and still do years later.
My experience in the Graduate School can help me to influence women in China. After just one year and a half of studying and working in America, I noticed I developed some professional skills such as critical thinking, integrity, making independent judgments, paying attention to detail, and leadership which all gradually transformed my mindset and my working style.
