Following is a Q&A with one of the 763 students who received a diploma Dec. 15 at UW-Stout

Hometown: Kaukauna
Major: Retail merchandising and management, concentration in fashion marketing and buying and in product development, minor in business

Emma HarrisWhy did you choose UW-Stout? Stout provides the only merchandising degree from a four-year UW school. I also talked to many friends and family members who had heard of this program and told me about how great its reputation is.

What are the biggest obstacles you faced in earning your degree? Working full time more than three hours away from Stout while I was attending classes here twice a week. I drove back and forth to be able to keep working. It was a long year but so worth it.

What stands out among your college experiences? I took the retail tour trip to New York in January 2018 with the retail program. It was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend.

What’s next? I will be moving to Milwaukee and beginning a job at Kohl’s corporate in product development. I cannot wait to begin this next chapter.
