University of Wisconsin Barron County, Rice Lake is a small University located in a smaller Northern Wisconsin town. All the campus buildings are located close to each other and campus housing is located within walking distance of the entire campus. The class sizes are small so you have good contact with your professors and excellent feedback. You have good choices for majors and undergraduate requirements. The campus offers a small cafeteria on site. The University offers a variety of competitive team athletics. I recommend this campus as a stepping stone to your career.

It is a two-year school; you are getting what you pay for. Although it is a smaller school, there are a lot of resources and places to study and staff to help. The office staff is very helpful, and will sit and work with you until the problem is resolved. All the arts are very unsupported and you have to buy almost all materials yourself. Also another downside is a lot of credits don't transfer, so although you may be going to save money you actually could be spending more by having to redo a lot of credits. If you are just going for your associate degree, it is a very decent school to go to.
The colleges of the University of Wisconsin build a very strong, interconnected foundation that allows students to transfer easily from once college to another. And if you don't want to leave your hometown and save money on room and board, there are growing online options that provide for a variety of majors, all you can complete from your own home while you work. The coursework and difficulty can change between colleges, so it can require a little bit of reading and preparation ahead of time to figure out what you need to take and what you want to take. Each college option, whether online or a physical institution, all have their ups and downs, be sure to find the right fit for you, and always keep in mind you can change schools fairly easily as well in case you need to.
