What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is that it is a great school for people wanting to go into Education or Business. Both of these programs are well known for their colleges and programs. Students are continually pushing each other to become involved. There are a variety of organizations to get involved in. These organizations will help incoming students find friends with common interests. Whitewater is also very affordable and there are also scholarships available that Whitewater provides. Overall, I am happy with the school. If you are looking for something to do off campus, it may be a drive though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the size of the campus. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from one side to the other. However, being there for almost 5 years now. It is tiresome. People are pretty nice and there is always something going on. Whether that be sporting events, theatrical plays or musicals, art exhibits, greek life, or just night life downtown on weekends. There are so many organizations it is easy to be involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academically, whitewater is a good school. There are several resources on campus for students with disabilities and a new tutor center was just built. Every hall has a computer lab with free printing everywhere. There are business fairs, conference rooms, and interview preparations to ensure success. Class sizes are small, some are large, but it is very easy to get in contact with professors regardless of the class size. Although the school has good recourses, the city of Whitewater is boring, there are not a lot of food places, and nowhere to shop. The only large store in the city is Walmart. The nearest city, Janesville, does not have good businesses either. The nearest best city is either Milwaukee or Madison. Whitewater is a backpack campus, meaning that it can be a ghost town on weekends, as people like to visit home often. The city has awful services- snow plowing is bad, no cabs or ubers, and no fun city events. The roads are terrible because there are holes in the streets and extremely steep slopes at the end of every driveway. The off -campus houses are almost all run day and moldy with lots of bad landlords. Some of the facilities on campus are nice, but the city overall is not attractive or entertaining. This is a good campus if you are planning on coming for an education and going home on the weekends, but if you are looking for a nice place to live and things to do, this is NOT the place for that. I hope this review is helpful and it is not only my opinion, many people have this opinion of UWW.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are a student who never needs help you'll be fine. If you're the kind of student who needs tutoring you should try to go anywhere else. I'm a third year Senior now and I will most likely have to drop out because I can't get any help with anything. I don't even have a program advisor (which I have been complaining about for two years now).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school feels like my home away from home, the environment and culture surrounding campus is very positive and you know everyone is here for their education. There is the occasional party you hear about but the party culture is not prominent if you don't get involved in it, it is overall a really good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school, especially for the price. It is definitely a suitcase school; most students go home an average of every other weekend, which means that almost everything on-campus is closed every weekend. Being one of exceptionally few out-of-state students, this gets annoying. I have heard others call this a party school but the parties are impossible to find if you are not the one throwing it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is it looks as if it is a safe and enjoyable college. A lot of the students are involved in extracurricular activities and I have witnessed a lot of students who take their academic life seriously, as well. It is a balance of fun and hard work, which is how most universities should be. It will be nice to have a roommate for the first couple of years of my college career, and what is also nice about the school is how they do not judge based on race, gender, or sexuality and ethnicity, so no matter what we are together.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although the weather sucks, I can't see myself being anywhere else. The professors are personal and care about every one of the students that walk into their space. I apreciate the genuine effort the cooks put into giving us good food made with love. They try hard every single day to make sure the facilities are clean and stocked with food.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Whitewater is an awesome school to attend. I made the right choice choosing this school. It offers so many opportunities for students. The professors and counselors are easily accessible and respond back whenever I have questions. The dorms are clean and the food choices are great. The athletic programs are awesome and the coaches are the best around.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

it is a nice school. I am placed at the alternate campus in rock county and it is a small school with nice 20 to 30 student classes. there is no housing but there is everything you need to get through a day on campus. i would highly recommend this school for anyone who is unsure of their major or looking for a inexpensive school.
