Hello! My name is Jeanie, and I am from Central Wisconsin. I was very fortunate to have known exactly what I wanted to do when I grow up. I wanted to run a restaurant! That is where UW-Stout came in, they have the best program for Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management in the area. I didn’t even look at any other colleges because I knew. We got to travel to different hotels, restaurants, and run our own restaurant here on campus. Even though our program was big, you didn’t feel like you were just another number. I earned my degree and worked in restaurants for a very long time until I decided to come back to UW-Stout to work in Admissions as a First-Year Admissions Counselor. Now I get to share what UW-Stout has to offer and the reasons why I loved Stout to prospective students.
