Back in early May, Holy Family College in Manitowoc announced that after this school year they would be closing their doors for good, a move which left their students searching for a new place to continue their education. Enter UW-Green Bay, Manitowoc Campus, who have been helping some of those students.
We spoke with Rachele Bakic, the Executive Director of Admissions at the campus, who voiced her empathy for those affected. “We are really sad to see what happened to Holy Family,” she said. “I was personally saddened by that just for the community, but also as the higher educational partner in that community. I had worked with Dr. Callahan on other partnerships as well as other colleagues.”
Backic told SeehaferNews.com that they have benefited from the closure a little bit as a “handful” of students have made their way to the UW-Green Bay System, and “we are currently helping many others with determining the next best steps for them.”
