I like the student-faculty ratio. I feel as though it provides the opportunity for students to feel connected to their professors and allows for easier networking opportunities. I do not typically feel unsafe on campus. The only issue is that the doors are always unlocked and an intruder could easily walk in. However, there is not an easy solution for a public university.
In my opinion, Parkside is not such a great school to attend. Through my time at Parkside, I cannot count the times on my hands or toes that I have been rejected by a professor for help. I had problems with one of my professors and went to talk to the dean. The dean had told me to talk to the professor about the problem. Clearly I would not be going to the dean if the problem has not already been brought up with that professor. I feel this school is just there to get the students money and make big claims about being diverse while simultaneously leaving people who have different opinions about big topics to keep their mouths shut or fear failing.
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside is a good school. The campus is small, so it's easy to find your way around, and there are plenty of things to do around campus, including disc golf, volleyball, or just going to the SAC to work out. There are so many shops to go to near campus, because there's a strip mall nearby and there's food just down the road, on 31. Just about everything is in the same vicinity, such as food and shops, all on 31, which makes it convenient.
I think for a smaller UW school it is nice. I wish the professors cared more about the students because there aren’t nearly as many as there are at Milwaukee or Lacrosse. I recommend anyone that is close to try it out and see how they feel. It’s a different experience for everyone.

I am a returning student. I have an undergraduate degree and a law degree, I have practiced law and done other work, and I have a child. Despite the experiences I have had throughout the years, there are several things I regret not doing. So if I were able to go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to take advantage of all opportunities that are presented in college. I would tell myself to join clubs and organizations, to travel during the summer, to attend talks and discussions with visitors to campus, and to take every opportunity for new experiences. During my first college experience, I concentrated primarily on getting top grades. While good grades are important and did help in my future career choices, they cannot substitute for the knowledge and experience to be gained outside the classroom. I don't regret any of the opportunities I took advantage of in college; the thing I regret is not taking advantage of more of those oportunities.
Most students at Parkside are very friendly and the ones that aren't generally keep to themselves.
the university of wisconsin parkside is very involved in activities, fun and small.
I'm attending online, so I have no response for this question.
I wish I knew how many oppertunities there are! I find myself wanting to join in, but there isn't enough time in the day. Also, I would have wanted to know that the professors would know me by name and have high expectations, not only for me, but for the entire class.
It's difficult to pick just one, because I brag mostly about two things: The first being the amazing quality of my teachers. I have professors who have their doctorates in their respective fields and give amazing lectures. The second would be the beautiful area surrounding the campus. Parkside is located right next to an amazing and enormous park, with some of the most beautiful trees I've ever seen.
Before attending UW Parkside, I attended UW Madison, a much larger and more competitive university. I feel as though Parkside is a much better fit for me.
The people that should attend UW-Parkside would be people who like quiet enviornments, like their main focus to be their academics, but still have fun with friends. They should want to be themselves and make new friends, and they should be someone who likes doing extracurricular activities, because Parkside has an activity for just about any kind of person.
That the school happens to be in the more country side of Wisconsin than other University of Wisconsin Universities.
UW-Parkside has a large variety of electives that are offered. I considered many different art schools, but I decided I would like to be well-rounded, rather than concentrate only on art. Also, Parkside was the only school that offered Digital Arts as a major, paired with Web Design as a concentration. My education here can on design as well as the technical aspect of using computers in conjunction.
What I consider the best thing about my school is, that I am able to request for help and they respond to me quiet fast. I also like that it is a smaller school. It is easier for me to walk around and attend my classes on time.
There is no person that shouldn't attend this school . there are always acticvities going on for all kinds of different groups and the school is so diverse everyone fits in perfectly.
Parkside is well known for their cross-country course. We are also known for the high number of graduates that continue on to graduate of proffesional school.
