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

I am most excited about starting my experience with the different people from around the state that go to earn an education at UW-Platteville. I hope to make many new friends there. I really want to go out and socialize, and UW-Platteville offers me that fully.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I enjoy pushing myself in the area of physical fitness. Along with lifting weights I love to play the guitar and hang out with my friends. Some other things that I like to do are playing video games, watching movies, and traveling around the country.

Darian's Thank You Note

Thank you very much for awarding me this scholarship. It is greatly appreciated and I cannot wait to begin my education at UW-Platteville. This money will make my college payments a little easier and it gives me a comforting sense of worth. The scholarship may not seem like much to many other people, but to me it means the world.

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

I am eager to begin my educational career at UW-Platteville. Pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education is what I am most excited for. I cannot wait to begin this new adventure in my life.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I have always found an interest in athletics. I have been involved in athletics ever since I was old enough to participate in them. I also am interested in the myriad of clubs that are offered at our school. I love being a part of them. In addition, I am interested in dancing. My senior year I helped start up a Poms team and we danced at the halftime of basketball games. This opened my eyes and made me realize how much fun dancing truly is, and it also is a great workout!

Alyssa's Thank You Note

I would like to thank the donors to the Benton High School Community Scholarship. This scholarship will help me offset the expenses for the tuition at UW-Platteville. I cannot wait to begin attending UW-Platteville. I am ready to begin this new adventure for my education!
