I started off at one of the extension schools which I would highly recommend. My advisors have been great and the transfer was extremely easy. All of the professors I have had this far have been great as well. As far as classes and grades, I have done much better at this school. Highly recommend.
My experience at UWSP has overall been a fulfilling experience full of opportunity and growth. As a natural resource student, I have been given great opportunities for professional development and fieldwork experience. Professors are average, some study areas are lacking passion and drive, while others are thriving.
UWSP loves to promote its sustainability practices and mission all throughout the university. However, UWSP currently invests endowment (donation funds) funds into fossil fuels. Fossil fuels do not promote a sustainable future for Wisconsin alumni and current students. I will not recommend UWSP until they divest from fossil fuels to better align their actions with their proudly stated values.
I think it seems like a great place to earn your education. The staff are always super helpful and are willing to meet 1 on 1 with all sorts of problems. Students are welcoming regardless of what they are into. The professors are always helpful but also bring up a good challenge.
This school is great academically. The teachers are supportive and so is the other staff on campus. Racism on campus is my big issue. There have been a lot of events in just my first semester that have made me feel unsafe. I come from a place where drugs and crime are everywhere, but only when I have gotten to school here have a felt the need to walk around with pepper spray.

Breathe. Take a good long look at yourself in the mirror. You see that? There, right there. That is the face of a college student. That is the face of someone who is putting a k-12 education behind her, and is now moving up to the level of--oh my God--secondary education. Don't worry about your college classes, because some of them are easier than high school. Don't worry about meeting people, because you'll be great. Don't worry about forgetting something, because your mom loves you enough to mail you anything you've forgotten. Most importantly, don't worry about the people you're leaving behind. This is when your life truly becomes YOURS. So, my advice to you, a bright-eyed college freshman? Hindsight may be 20/20, but if you keep looking backwards you're bound to be tripped up by the present. Let these next four years be spent only looking to the future.
With this past election, I felt out of place as a republican since Stevens Point is a very Democratic city. It was very alienating how pushy the Obama campaigners got this election, making the few republicans wary of sharing beliefs. The weekends here are usually a lot of fun but not many people stick around since Stevens Point fits as a suitcase college due to the position of the city being in central Wisconsin.
The best thing about UWSP has to be the classes and teachers. Even though some of the topics can seem a little boring at times, the teachers and professors truly make each class enjoyable and fun while still giving us the information we need to succeed. I also enjoy the variety of the classes and how even the basic introductory classes are exciting and interesting.
Someone who doesn't want to just be one person out of 10,000. Its a nice size city here and you are garanteed to make frriends and have a good time.
A person who likes to stay back on campus during weekends. Campus is almost empty during the weekends.
Finding time to make sure all school work is completed.
UWSP is an environment-first mid-sizzed school with involved faculty and active students.
My classmates are for the most part very focused and determined for those who are in the class, and those who aren't tend to end up dropping out of college anyway.
I wish I would have known that they never cancel class!
UW Stevens Point is a tightly knit community. Living on campus gives you access to hundreds of activities and countless campus events, while still being small enough to allow a sense of family and cimmunity. My teachers all know each student by name, and they form true relationships with their classes. Several programs are available to keep new students on the right track, and there is always something going on. Between our diverse student organizations and our entertainment company, Centertainment, students are never just stuck in their rooms. Stevens Point is a safe, small town school with big time attitude.
I brag about our intense biological and natural science curriculums. A lot of people think Stevens Point, being a city of only 8,000 people, doesn't have anything to do, but I inform them otherwise. I talk about the activities students can partake in like sports events, watching movies, dances, and hall activities all for free!
I would have to say that my school is well known for Natural Resources and Health Promotion and Wellness. It is a very environmentally conscious and is also known for being very health focused, the health focus was one of my main reasons for choosing this school.
I'm not sure what the stereotype of students at UWSP is. Perhaps that everyone drinks and parties a lot, not always true! Or that it is full of rednecks and country hicks, which is also definitely not true!
