I think it is an okay school. They have great food sometimes and all the buildings are close by which is nice. I also love my forensic professors but as for other professors sometimes they are not so good. It is not a very diverse school though but for the most part people are nice.
I enjoy the campus and I believe it is a good fit. It is close to my parent's home and I can easily travel back and forth. Overall, I feel as University of Wisconsin Platteville is an extremely good school and it fits all the criteria I am looking for in a college.
My personal opinion about the university of Wisconsin-Platteville, I am currently taking science classes for me to pursue my nursing degree. Because UW-Platteville has a very good science program and I need some science classes in order for me to start my education. Also, this school is very nice and clean. It is a public school with just the right amount of students in the class for you to focus and learn more from.
I'll be honest, when I was a senior and I was thinking about where I could see myself for the next four years, it was definitely not Platteville, Wisconsin. Although, I knew that my major would be secondary education and that Platteville had a great program for future educators. My freshman year was great and exciting fun, as it should be when you make new friends and you're out braving the new world of adulthood! My Sophomore year was not quite like that fantasy college life. The biggest down fall of UW-Platteville is that is feels just like high school for the folks who went to an average sized school. The groups are incredibly cliquey and I know because I was apart of one and now have been able to see it from the outside. In these desperate times, I decided the best thing for me would be to focus on school work. I'll admit I've had numerous tabs open for universities across the country that would be a better fit for me, but there was something always drawing me back. It was the staff and my advisors that made me realize how lucky I am to have such involved individuals in the journey I am taking. I decided to look past the cliques because hey, I've only got a couple years to go! And the most important part of college is deciding what is best for you, along with making some great memories. So, even though Platteville is not my dream school, I've realized it is where I need to be in order to created lasting connections with professionals in order to help me get to my future dream school as a teacher.

To go and spend a day at the college, sit in a class to see if college is really for you.

Lastly to find a college that you can finacially pay off in a fair amount of time and one that is noted worthy of the career you plan on going to.
I would have been more prepared for taking basic classes than I was originally. I did not understand that i would be taking so many general courses to get credits. If this was brought to me in highschool I would have concentrated even harder to get through as many AP level classes as possible to earn college credit. By doing this, it would have given me an opportunity to concentrate more on classes that were dealing with my majors.
I do not have anything bad to say, except it is so far away. I wish it was closer so I could visit the campus.
I attend through the extended degree program, so I do not get to enjoy having classmates.
Small-town, close knit community where you feel like you're friends with everybody.
My scool is best know foe it's online programs in Crminal Justice and Buisness.
I like that it's smaller. There are about 7000 students there, so the classes are small, like high school classes. To me, this is the best way to learn and excel at school.
That you can walk anywhere that everything is convient to get to.
Someone who expects a lot to be going on shouldn't attend this school. It's also not a good idea to come here if you live far away, because a lot of people go home on weekends. On weekends, the only way you know about something going on is if you are in a sport and know older players, if you plan on joining a fraternity and have pledged, or if you're a female, because there's not many here, so people always invite them.
The kind of person who should attend this school is any kind of person who enjoys a small town feel or wants to be an engineer.
This school 's atmosphere is very laid back. You can feel comfortable here with all the faculty and students because everyone is so friendly. Drama and the necessity to drink and party all the time is not the main focus at this university. If you wanted to, you could but there is more things to do on weekends than party here compaired to other Wisconsin schools.
Some of the professors cause problems and sometimes the food is terrible.
Rednecks, Jocks, and Nerds. I believe from being at UW Platteville for three months that this stereotype is accurate and anyone coming to this college would say so.
Here at UW Platteville there are many different academics to chose from due to it being a 4 year and not a 2 year college. As the years go through I am looking forward to taking classes and being able to chose for myself what ones look interesting and what ones don't,
Frolfing, because we have a frolf course. You will also see a lot of long boarders, along with many more hobbies.
I was a little disappointed when I started at UW-Platteville because I originally wanted to go to a out-of-state school. My dad went to UW-Platteville and he told me that even though it is four hours from home, that it would become like another home to me. He was obviously right because now I refer to my room as home and I even miss my dorm bed when I go home.
UW-Platteville is a school in a small town, it is very welcoming, and easy to make one on one connections with anyone and everyone.
The best place on campus to get work done is definitely either the library, especially when it comes to winter, but in the fall and spring I love doing my homework outside in the grass.
I decided to attend University of Wisconsin Platteville, because it had my intended major. I would have had to go out of state or to a private college, which I did not have the money to do. Not to mention, Platteville was a smaller school which fits my personality more than going to a larger school. I felt at home on campus and everyone was very helpful and informative. I believe I made the correct decision to attend the University.
Absolutely not, Parties are very avoidable on campus, and there are hundreds of other opportunities on weekends besides parties.
