What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I am most excited to get to see what college as a whole is really like. I am very excited about living in the dorms next year, getting to meet new people and making new friendships. I will also be learning what it is like outside of the small town that I grew up in. Another thing I am excited for are the classes. I have taken some online college credit courses and I have always wondered what it was like in the actual classroom, and now I have that opportunity. Overall, I am extremely excited and a little nervous to see what the whole college experience is really like.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My interests include math, reading, and interacting with other people. I enjoy doing all of these things in my spare time; although, I don’t have much spare time because I work three jobs. I spend most of my time going to school, doing homework, practicing piano, or working. I have maintained three jobs, because of my college plans and needing to pay for my education. I work at the Shullsburg Community Bank (a branch of the Benton State Bank), Massage Works, and University of Wisconsin-Platteville in the catering department. By working these jobs, I get to do all three of my interests and am preparing for my career.

Brandi's Thank You Note

I just wanted to thank you for the scholarship given to me through the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation. I will be using this scholarship for tuition, books, and housing next year as a freshman. I will show my appreciation for your scholarship by continuing to work hard and be dedicated to my education. Thank you again for the opportunity and for the scholarship as a whole.
