"I liked being able to get a taste of living 'on my own'. This is the first time I've ever been to a camp and it was comforting knowing that college wouldn't be to horrible. I had a great time in the resident halls and wish I could come again next year (I'm a senior, UW Whitewater is at the top of my list for colleges to attend in fall 2020)."

I enjoyed listening to others stories, their technique, their passion. With each class, we were able to see a glimpse into each other’s lives and understand each other’s points of view through writing. By the end of the class we hated to part ways. Feedback from instructor was very useful. She went out of her way to find additional information and other readings that may have pertained to each one of us personally.

The guides were so knowledgeable of the flowers and growing techniques – how they grow best, soil, sun. It was interesting to hear about how much planning goes into the landscapes. The tour gave me a chance to see some beautiful garden space on campus that normally isn't noticeable when driving by.

"The Beer Matters course is a fantastic way to learn about beer history and engage in discussion with others who enjoy beer and homebrewing as much as I do! It's well-planned and always interesting."

"Our facilitators were sensitive to what was happening and made us feel welcome to join in the small group discussions. I came to this to get more information to help my students and colleagues, and I did get that, but what I really came away with was some peace of mind. I was able to talk about how this topic has really affected me as a practitioner and I really appreciated being able to do this."
