Higher Education Choice is Power: 5 Reasons Globe University Matters

Students and staff from Globe University-Green Bay woke up bright and early to get ready for the Wisconsin Council for Independent Education’s (WCIE) Hill Day. The event brings together for-profit institutions to provide an opportunity to share students’ experiences with their state legislators. Globe University had all of its seven Wisconsin campuses involved with incredible support from its students and staff.

It is important to take part in days like these so that legislators are educated on the importance of the ever-changing higher education options. The Globe University-Green Bay campus has existed for about three years, yet many residents and legislators don’t really understand what differentiates our school from other for-profit schools.

Students Share Their Stories

Three paralegal students—Lyndsay Bristol, Brittney Rohde, and Ashley Hearley—all spent their entire day at the Capitol talking about their experiences and why they chose Globe University.

Lyndsay has tried other colleges before coming to Globe University, but with life’s challenges and college programs she hadn’t been able to graduate or find something that was a good fit for her.   

Some of the other thoughts and reasons students shared for choosing Globe University were:

  1. Small class sizes and flexible class scheduling
  2. Classes pertaining to your career and hands-on learning
  3. Instructors that really care and know you by name
  4. The ability to feel welcomed and utilize help whenever needed
  5. Career services department is involved from day one

We met with staffers from Senator Hansen’s office and Representative Klenke. Both meetings were a huge success as staffers commented about the quality education we provide for students and how we place students directly in their career fields. Both legislators will be touring the campus in the next few months and look forward to meeting with our students.
