Brett Pluemer

Brett Pluemer

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

The reason I am most excited for college is that I get to take classes and learn about things that truly interest me. I am very excited to learn about plants and soil and how they interact because I have been interested in them for most of my life. I am also excited to live and make decisions on my own. I believe this is an important part of the college experience, and it is the main reason I decided to live on campus.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My main hobbies include almost anything outdoors. A few activities I enjoy are camping, fishing, hunting, and hiking. The things that interest me most are ecological processes and how humans can get them to work in our favor. I am very interested in plants. I am just amazed by what plants can do and how they could be used by humans in the future to improve our lives.

Brett's Thank You Note

Thank you for your generous scholarship. The Iowa-Grant Community will always be considered home to me no matter where I end up in this lifetime. The closeness and helpfulness that the Iowa-Grant Community genuinely generates is something in which I am very proud. This money will definitely be used to help pay for my college expenses! I'm excited to start the next chapter of my life at UW-Platteville, and with your help, my future worries for paying off college are somewhat eased!  Thanks again!
