     My name is Taylor Schroeder and I am a freshman at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I am originally from Little Chute, Wisconsin, a small town in between Green Bay and Oshkosh. Being this far from home and the college experience in general is an exciting, new thing and I am loving everything about college life. UW-L is such a gorgeous campus and there are so many things to do. My weekends usually consist of exploring the city of La Crosse and utilizing all the amazing things there is to do outdoors. I am currently studying biomedical science for my Pre-Physician Assistant studies. Besides science, I am also interested in art and it is one of my main hobbies along with hanging out with friends and family.
