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

I am very excited to attend UW-Platteville because of the family-like atmosphere. There are many programs and activities at UW-Platteville to get involved in, and I plan to be in a lot! I am very excited to meet new people, and further my education here.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love to work-out in my free time! I am very athletic and loving meeting new people through sports! I also love to spend time volunteering in the community. I am very dedicated to learning and school that I do not have much extra time for any hobbies, however, I am very interested in being highly involved in extra-curricular activities at UW-Platteville.

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

I am excited about experiencing the strong engineering program at UW-Platteville. I am interested in the engineering field, and since Platteville has one of the best programs around for that field of study, I cannot wait to see what they have to offer. There is also a diverse group of students to get to know better while still building stronger relationships with my current friends that are also attending the university.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I enjoy watching and competing in all sports. Also, I have always loved being outdoors, so hunting and fishing are a couple of my favorite activities. When I am with my friends, we enjoy playing video games, watching television, and supporting our favorite sports teams (sometimes at the same time).

Benjamin's Thank You Note
