Christopher Pedersen has been serving in the Army National Guard for nearly 14 years.
“The campus does a wonderful job giving me the needed resources as a veteran to be successful and working with my needed days off of class to attend military training,” Christopher said.
Pedersen said it was a combination of things that brought him to UWRF.
“The goal was to get my wife in the equestrian program and to complete my degree,” notes Christopher. “We both loved the area when we came for a tour of the campus.”
After finishing his bachelor’s degree, Christopher will be taking part in the new UWRF master of science in strength and conditioning program.
“It feels like I am being looked out for my best interest here on campus. Having easy access to resources and the ability to sign up for classes earlier than most is a definite plus,” said Christopher.
