Here, he answers some questions about his time with us in Wisconsin, and the process of applying to transfer.
Hi Baylor. What made you pursue a college degree in the United States?
I wanted to pursue a college degree in the US because the different cultures in the US makes me feel like I can learn more from people.
What major are you interested in, and why?
Psychology is my major because it is like a different language. There are many different ways to speak it and I’m interested in learning more about that. I want to be an advisor working in schools using my knowledge in the future.
What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation, I’m thinking of going to graduate school to keep studying in the US.
Why did you choose to study at Kings at UWO-Fox Cities?
I chose to study with Kings at UWO-Fox Cities because Kings helped me with any technical questions throughout my studies here at Fox Cities and also helped me when going through the steps of the transfer application. They got me ready to start university at my transfer university at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
What is your favorite class, why do you like it? What class do you find more challenging?
My favorite class at Fox Cities was Psychology class because it’s my major and I’m happy to learn more about developmental psychology and statistics class. The research projects I did made me more prepared to continue with my studies in Psychology. Biology was the most challenging class because the professor was very strict, but the class helped me be more prepared.
Have you decided on your target schools? How did Kings staff guide you through the process?
"During the application process, Kings went through how to properly fill out my transfer application and reviewed my application essays. After I got my acceptance to multiple schools, I chose to attend the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Kings staff helped me get everything completed for starting classes and registering at my new school."
Have there been any difficulties with classes or life in general? What kind of assistance did you get from Kings staff?
I was stressed when I first arrived at Wisconsin. Kings helped me learn how to get more organized and how to adapt to my new environment.
Which student activity did you enjoy the most?
Going to Madison with other students was an activity I enjoyed the most with Kings.
What is your favorite part of living in Appleton/Menasha?
Making friends was my favorite part of living in Menasha.
