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

I am most excited to meet new people. I love making new friends and it will be a blast getting to know new people from all over Wisconsin. I am also excited for the dorm experience. I have gone to various summer camps that you had to live in the dorms, but I feel they won’t compare to being a college student. The learning aspect is something that I am very interested in. I heard my program at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville was outstanding and I can’t wait to dive right in.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Snowboarding is something I am very passionate about. I love to get some of my friends together and hit the slopes. I am a very outgoing person and I love to try new things. I am also thinking about possibly trying out for the baseball team.

Blake's Thank You Note

I would like to thank you the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation for selecting me as a recipient of the Highland High School Community Scholarship. I am honored and very appreciative to receive this award. I’ll work hard to represent Highland High School and the town of Highland. Thank the donors, for your generosity and your donations to make this scholarship possible. I am planning to go into Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Spanish. I loved growing up in my small town and I feel that the University of Wisconsin-Platteville has some of those small town characteristics. I will create a lot of memories and learn a lot from this outstanding campus.
