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

I know many people who have gone or are going to UW-Platteville, and something that excites me about becoming a member of the Platteville community is just that becoming part of the Platteville community, from all of the clubs and organizations such as Inner Varsity, to experiencing college life in a comfortable and inviting environment. The first time I visited the campus I knew that this was the place for me as it held that sense of small town Wisconsin farming pride that I love coupled with academic excellence in engineering and agriculture. I am also looking forward to creating new friendships with my peers and professors as we live and learn from each other during our college career.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Most of my interests and hobbies are derived from my interest and desire to create and make things. In the past I have made miniature hot air balloons, pseudo clock mechanisms, sculptures made of wire and a sterling engine which is probably my favorite homemade device. Through clubs at Marshfield High School such as Science Olympiad I build things such as homemade gliders and instruments, which leads me to one of my most enjoyable hobbies: music. As long as I can remember, music has been a huge part of my life. My parents instilled a love of music early in my sister and me. However, one of my passions in music is singing and playing and writing music for piano. Music is an amazing tool to relieve stress and relax your mind after a long day.

Andrew's Thank You Note

Thank you so much for your support, I sincerely appreciate your faith in me and in UW-Platteville.
