WAUSAU (WAOW) -

The first day of classes is now in the books at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau.

NTC's campus is once again alive with students. That includes a 19-year-old transfer from UW-Milwaukee.

It's a day of introductions, nerves, and learning

NTC in Wausau has officially begun its fall semester. School officials say about 4,000 students are enrolled this fall. That includes 19-year-old Emily Worden.

"Stuff is just so much different down there than it is here, it's just a lot better quality here," said Worden.

Worden is from the Wausau area. When she graduated high school she wanted to try something new. So she applied and got accepted to UW-Milwaukee.

"I decided I had enough of the small scene so I was going to go down to Milwaukee and I absolutely loved it down there," said Worden.

But now one year later Worden transferred to NTC, a place she says will definitely help her in becoming a nurse.

"I'm totally a hands-on person so to be there and just sitting there and not having examples to work on it was just like making me crazy,"said Worden.

She says the cost of tuition and close communication with professors are big reasons why Worden transferred to the college.

"You can get the help that you need and sufficient help to help get you in the direction you want to go,"said Worden.

Worden says her new direction will be an adjustment, but it's one she's willing to make for a bright future.

"It's a new start for me I'm really excited," said Worden.

Worden says she plans on getting her two-year degree from NTC. She says she might go back to UW-Milwaukee for her bachelor's degree.
