Student Rose WeedRose Weed is a junior majoring in psychology and minoring in criminal justice.

“I moved around a lot as a child. I’ve been in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin since 2013. I like to be active, exercise, listen to music, play with make-up, and I love clothes. I love all food, especially things with cheese and salt (who doesn’t?). I graduated from Moraine Park Technical College in 2017 with a degree in correctional science. I came to Marian shortly after that and I have learned so much here!

I am a member of forensic and psychology clubs. I’m also with the Student Association of Smiles and Happiness, as well as Spectrum.

So many people at Marian are kind and helpful. The TRIO Office and Writing Center are fabulous. Campus Ministry is awesome and Sr. Edie Crews is helpful and a calming mentor for me. The Financial Aid Office is helpful, too. Everyone here is patient, kind, and fair. I never take those things for granted.

My advice to others is don’t give up. It’s been a journey for me to get my associate’s degree and now I’m working toward my bachelor’s. I was a little nervous coming to Marian, but I now feel so welcomed and I want everyone to experience this. The people here are helpful and accommodating.”
