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

I am most excited about actually having the opportunity to attend Platteville. I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was seven years old and never dreamed of having good enough grades to be able to go to college.  I worked very hard and had exceptional teachers that taught me to compensate for my learning disability.  They never gave up on me and always told me I would someday go to college.  I never thought it possible but here I am, about to attend an outstanding college with an awesome reputation.  Plattevillet is a perfect size for me.  I need the smaller class size in order be successful.  I am so excited to be living a dream!

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My biggest interest besides technology, is fishing.  So not only will I be joining an engineering club or two, but I am looking forward to joining  the Bass Fishing Club.  Fishing is a passion of mine.  I also make my own flies for fly fishing in my down time, hopefully I can share this with others. I find it very relaxing and rewarding.
