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

After visiting and touring campus this spring, I was really impressed by all that the University of Wisconsin-Platteville has to offer. I enjoyed meeting with advisers in both the Ag and Media Studies programs and I am looking forward to seeing them again when I attend classes this fall. I am also looking forward to student life and meeting other new freshman. There is so much to get involved in, it will be fun to see what new experiences I encounter.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

For interests and hobbies I mostly enjoy: working out, watching my favorite sports, interacting with friends on social media, and working on the farm, especially field work.

Jacob's Thank You Note

I was grateful for the opportunity to apply to the Community Scholarship Foundation and honored to be chosen. Thank you very much, I promise to put it to good use as a Pioneer!

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

I am most excited about starting a new chapter in my life. I know I will gain multiple friends and create many memories that will last a lifetime. I have been very active in extracurricular activities in high school and I plan to stay active in them in college. Intramural sports and the many different clubs will keep me very busy. I cannot wait to get started!

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Participating and watching sports is my favorite past time. I was a three sport athlete in high school because of this love. I look forward to continuing my love of sports at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville by watching and playing them. Sports have taught me a lot on and off the court. I could never thank my coaches enough for what they have given me.

Sarah's Thank You Note

Thank you so much for this generous scholarship. This will definitely be of great help with the payment of my schooling. I cannot wait to have the great experience that you have had at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
