I think this school is great for meeting the needs of any degree program student. They continue to meet mine everyday from the learning quality to the overall experience. I think this school is outstanding in every possible way.
Tips for prospective students
I would tell students to always do there home and to study actively from the very first day of class.
Academic Rigor
I think the academics here strive every student to do their best.
Food and Dining
The food here is absolutely the best and its affordable. A student can get a well cooked meal for a reasonable price.
What to do for fun
There is all kinds of things to do for fun such as going to the Y to work out or to a new movie at the theater.

Am learning a lot
I love that I am doing hands on things everyday I am here. I feel as though I am working one step closer each and everyday towards my dreams, and learning more than I ever expected.
Am enjoying being here
I feel as though everyday at Fox Valley is an experience for me. There are always new things going on, and countless groups waiting for you to join. It is truly a place for anyone who is willing to learn, no matter your age.
Bang for the buck
Compared to other universities in Wisconsin, Fox Valley is extremely affordable. I previously attended a university in Wisconsin and I feel as though my education at FVTC is equally valuable at about 1/2 of the price I was paying previously.
Tips for prospective students
Even if you are not looking to attend a technical school, check it out. There are so many opportunities that most people don't know about. Fox Valley can also earn you credits towards other 4-year colleges if you don't find a program there for you.
Great for these types of students
Fox Valley is a great place for new students, transfer students, and returning students. If you are a full time parent or employee, Fox Valley does its best to help you offering day classes, night classes, and online classes. If you have the drive to learn, Fox Valley is the place for you!

Did learn a lot
Some classes really taught me a lot they have a great economics class James Bork is a great teacher. Best teacher for I believe any psych class is Janine Connolly she is really funny and never gives you homework I think there is 3 assignments for the whole semester I had Abnormal Psych very fun class good movies she picks too! Worst teacher is Marry Curry she is very strict its hard to pass DO NOT take her!
Did enjoy being here
Some teachers were great but over all I did not enjoy this school. All my classes where at least 3 hours which is to long for me; however if you like that then its great for you. I took all gen eds here by the way. It also is a far driving distance for me I did not enjoy that.
Bang for the buck
Yes this is probably the cheapest school around! One warning if you are not taking a degree there you can't get financial aid and have to pay out of pocket but still the price isn't bad.
Tips for prospective students
If you are transferring be careful a lot of them do not transfer I don't think any of the math classes there do. Check with the school your transferring to make sure that your credits will transfer. Research your teachers before you choose them on like ratemyprofessors.com or something. They are very accurate. Scheduele according to what works best for you. You don't want to have one class done then the other start 2 hours from then you will be very bored sitting there. Don't buy the lunch from there it is really expensive go to McDonald's which is near by.
Great for these types of students
If you want an associate degree. If you are transferring be careful!

Go to the cafe and grab a fancy drink. Stop by the Student Life center and play ping-pong. Go to one of the restaurants and try something new. Set up a work-out group and go get your blood flowing! There are so many options.

The BEST college experience that I have had! The teachers are great because they work with you to help you understand and DON'T talk down to you. The staff is ineradicable!

If you are searching for a Tech School, FVTC is an awesome place to attend!

New kitchen at the Oshkosh campus, and the one at Appleton is amazing!

The cost of attending per credit is moderately low compared to the high quality of the the instructors teaching. It is well worth it!

Fox Valley Tech is a vast school with professors who take the time to get to know you and help you through class and other life challenges.
Tips for prospective students
I recommend attending here even if you do not have a set major in mind just taking classes helped me realize the program I wanted to be in.
Academic Rigor
The classes here are hard but they are passable with effort, all you need to do is just make time to study and go to class and you will have a good GPA.
Dorm Life
FVTC offers dorms at UWO so you still get the big campus feeling without actually having to go to a big university.
Food and Dining
FVTC has food courts on their campus as well as being able to use UWO's food courts as well.
What to do for fun
There are so many groups that pertain to majors and hobbies that it is hard to not belong to a group and have something going on daily.
