In our "Class of the Week," local college students are wrapping up their first week of classes.
Seniors at the University of Wisconsin in Stevens Point give a word of advice for the first year students, while first timers are still getting used to life on campus.
Stephanie Krautkramer, a junior at UW- Stevens Point, says she later became a community adviser to help those following in her footsteps.
Getting involved on campus is a great start. Senior Ashley Remington, who works in the Dean's office says she wouldn't have it any other way.
First year students, Nellie DeLain and Kristina Bandoli, are still adjusting to their new lifestyle. The two knew each other in high school and say it's helped with the transition.
Senior Josh O'Connor says it gets easier along the way, as long as you stay on top of things and keeping pushing for your goals.
Information and Outreach Coordinator, Kate Reck, wants to remind parents it's okay to let go and they aim to make sure all students succeed.
