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

I'm looking forward to the learning experience I will have at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I will enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. I believe meeting new people is a great way to develop a great social experience. In general, I am just excited about going to college itself and experiencing the college life.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I am an avid golfer and I enjoy it greatly. I try to golf every chance I get. My father got me into snowmobiling when I was very young, so now I like to snowmobile all winter long. I'm also very passionate about basketball, it is my favorite sport. I played all throughout high school. I look forward to meeting coach Gard and learning more about intermural sports at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
