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

I am most excited to go off on my own, live in the dorms, and meet new people.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I am interested in soil judging, welding, baseball, and cross country. I also enjoy raking hay, working with animals, and spending time with my friends and family.

Michael's Thank You Note

I would like to thank all the donors that made my scholarship possible. Your generosity makes my dream of graduating from a 4 year university a reality. I am the 8th child in my family to attend a 4 year university. I will be the 5th to attend UW-Platteville. Growing up on the family farm has inspired me to pursue my education in Agribusiness/Engineering Technology. My parents expect me to pay my own way through college. Although I have been saving for college by working on the farm since the 3rd grade, your support helps ease the financial burden of going to a 4 year university. Thank you so much for contributing to students who are trying to further their education at UW-Platteville.
