I think UW-Whitewater is a good school to attend for someone who is looking for a personal, and comfortable setting without being at a very small school. You can get to know your professors one on one and they are always available to you in office hours; there aren't any TA's. You meet a diverse group of students and is always encouraged to get involved on campus.
Overall, I have found the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to be one of the greatest decisions I've ever made. There's a welcoming community, amazing academics, caring professors, and so much more. Student safety is a priority and the administrators, student leaders, and faculty all genuinely care about each student on campus. Also, despite being in a small town setting, the university has all of the resources and benefits of a larger, more city-centralized university. In short, Whitewater is the perfect school and an amazing place that facilitates fun, positive experiences, and personal growth at every turn.
Overall, it is a great place. Not too big, not too small. It is diverse, but there's still underlying tension between people (just google "Whitewater students black face misunderstanding and you'll get a feeling of what I mean there"). The professors are really cool for the most part; you're always going to find those few who are scary or too difficult. The campus is close to downtown so if you're not feeling school food you can easily walk to McDonald's, WalMart, Culvers, Pizza Hut (there's so many pizza places here, can you imagine??), and there's a cute diner downtown as well. Some of the dorms are renovated, but instead of choosing to renovate parts of the older ones, they decided to add onto an already new building which is a waste of $32 million.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is 69%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If I could go back and give myself advice for my future college career I would have told myself that just going to class doesn't cut it. In order to thrive in a university setting you have to balance your priorities, friends, and other obligations. Time management is immensely helpful when you incorporate it into your daily schedule. Never be afaraid to talk in class or ask for help. I wish I had known that earlier on because you can't learn when your only hearing directly from the professor. Student input is essential. Don't be afraid to take your learning to the next level and use your teachers to network into your desired career field. After all your paying for the knowledge and instruction you recieve here.
The worst thing about this school is its lacking in cultural diversity.
Whitewater is a collegetown with high school spirit.
I wish I would have known how cold the campus can be in the winter time. It can be so freezing in Wisonsin but other than that I LOVE THIS college.
One who is uncomfortable in small cities and one who wants to be by themselves most of the time.
KNown for College of Business.
Diversity! The best thing about UW-Whitewater is the fact that the small community loves to embrace diversity. If you have a different point of view you should never be afraid to put it across in Whitewater. Also the fact that there are not many distractions help people study and concerntrate better.
What kind if person should atten this school? One who is smart and has a little wild side to them.
One of the most frustrating things about college is the student living. Although living on campus has provided me with many amazing experiences, learning to adapt to the extremely new environment is sometimes agravating. In my first semester at college I often became frustrated with the noise level in the dorms and sometimes found it hard to concentrate on homework and studying. The most frustrating thing for me in my first semester at collge was learnig to adapt to the new college atmosphere so that I could get still get the necessary school wok done while living in the dorms.
Predominately white, mostly good people, some country-bumpkin types.
It's accounting program.
Our School won the Division 3 national championship in football (the Stagg Bowl) this year, and in 2007 as well.
Almost kind of sad how much the teachers are pushovers. Most of them are unprofessional, and lazy. Most students were that "kid" in high school....aka never changed in gym class(dumb).
Don't bother with the activities, their all losers that probabaly will talk to their mom's about you every night before they get tucked into their dorm beds.
The social life is really a hit or miss, i don't like calling WW a suitcase college but in reality it is. They definately good house parties, but remember it is a small town with a college smack dab in it. "haters" aka the UW-Whitewater Police Dep. so whack, we the students make their nights and early days.
comments: all the hot girls you see walking around during the day, hibernate in their living quarters for the weekends, for every 10 guys, you will be lucky if there is 4 girls, yeahhhhh......
For a Wisconsin School I would say it is ranked in academics 3,from Madison number 1, Lacrosse 2. Whitewater does have certain programs that give the University itself a overall positive gist that shouldn't be in place. Most likely if you talk to someone out of state, the would ask you back, if its in the middle of South Dakota?
Yes, unless your unintelligent, and not socially aware.... aka your parents are broke drunk degenerate's
Camo apparel to class during the fall, and Wisconsin girls trying to dress like their not from Wisconsin.
-Guys wearing birkenstocks
-Guys wearing Brewer hats when 3/4 of them are from MKE suburbs
-Girls buying Northface at Northface Outlets
-Girls rocking fake purses, when they drive Pontiacs
Girl/Guy- wearing high school apparel, no one cares where you went to high school, it probally sucked
I am not aware of any stereotypes being directed towards UW-Whitewater Students.
