    In 2008 "UW-Green Bay and Nicolet Area Technical College (NATC) in Rhinelander...formed a partnership to offer UUW-Green Bay courses at NATC starting this fall.... Classes in Rhinelander, combined with online courses and, in some cases, occasional trips to Green Bay for students, will enable more North Woods residents to earn a UW-Green Bay bachelor's degree."
