    TESTIMONIAL
    I am Eugenia Elube Barleycorn form Equatorial Guinea .Studied Human Resource Management and completed in the year 2011-2016. Wisconsin University is one of the best universities in Ghana and has made me the best in everything I do.
    I am now working at Ernst & Young as the Personal Assistant to the Director .I learnt never to give up in life thanks to the wonderful lecturers I encountered at Wisconsin that their aim is to make us better men and women.
    My fondest memories were when we had activities on campus that involved jumble sales.
    I will urge potential tertiary level not to hesitate to choose Wisconsin if they want to know what it is to work and come out being proud of oneself.
