University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about University of Wisconsin-Whitewater? Why?


The most difficult thing about attending the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater is that the majority of students go home for the weekend. Whitewater itself is not all that interesting of a place with only a few fast food resaurants, and a Walmart. Without many other students sticking around for the weekend it becomes hard to find fun things to do from Friday afternoon through Sunday evening.


I don't see anything wrong with University of Whitewater's education, but the one thing I would have to say is the location. The town is a pretty small place. The only main store there is is Walmart. This is not big deal though.


It's a small town.


The worst thing I consinder about UW-Whitewater is the parking lot. Some parking lots are right by the main road. During winter you cannot really park by the main road because when they plow they give you a ticket if your car is parked on this road.


The worst thing I found about the University of Wisconsin Whitewater was their allocation of funds towards updating campus buildings. The University Center, the area that is photographed for publicity use, is often undergoing updates and recently received an entirely new face-lift. Other buildings remain far enough behind that they do not even have air conditioning.


The small town is the worst thing in my eyes. The campus is not that large and is not surrounded by a city but the petiteness of the town allows for a homely atmosphere. It could be just a bit bigger and I would be happy.


People who aren't accepting of others.


In looking at the broad picture of The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the small-town backdrop upon which the campus exists is what I believe to be the worst thing about it. The fact that the town of Whitewater is so small ensures that there is a limited capacity for diversity and the expansion of opinions and ideas in the minds of incoming students. The lack of a "big-city" atmosphere and the diverse demographics characteristic of such a metropolitan area, can take away from the influential outside-world experiences that students may otherwise have while in college.


If you're not a freshman, I think it's difficult to find a way to become active and participate in different activities around campus. In the dorms, they have get to know you events and such. For transfer students, it is a struggle to reach out and become fully immersed in the campus life. I think over time, people would find others in classes and clubs. But for starting out, you have to be bold and be determined to meet people and put yourself out there. Otherwise it won't happen.


Worst thing? is that a serious question?
