Sarah Eberhard

"The counselor education program at UW-Whitewater is one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. I am currently in my 2nd year of the three year program and I've grown so much! I truly love attending my classes and I look forward to them! The skills that we learn are ones that not only help me on a professional level, but in my personal life and relationships as well. My professors all have incredible counseling backgrounds and experiences that help us gain a better understanding of the field that we are entering."

Ty Gamble

"The Counselor Education program at UW-Whitewater is a place where you really get to meet some great people. It is a place where professors are genuinely the most caring individuals and they challenge you to succeed. Since my time in the Counselor Education program I have grown so much as a person and as a counselor! I feel more and more prepared each day and I feel ready to become a helper because of the feedback I have received from classmates and professors. The higher education emphasis has taught me a great deal about applying theories & working with different student populations and I'm excited to transfer that knowledge into the work I do in a University setting!
