When I first transferred to UW-Stout, I was still unsure of what exactly I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to work with people whether that be young children, adolescents, or adults, but I knew I didn’t want a teaching degree. When I learned about the Human Development and Family Studies program I couldn’t believe my ears, it was exactly what I was looking for!
The HDFS program has helped me grow in so many ways professionally and personally. I have been able to apply what I have learned in classrooms, communities, professional settings, and in everyday life. I actually look forward to going to my classes because it keeps me interested and engaged. The professors and other students are such great resources and they have all been there to help me grow!
