Recipient of the Mineral Point High School Fund Scholarship.

dakota james

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

I am really looking forward to being a part of the rich history that Platteville has. Also, to attend classes that will challenge me and prepare me for my career outside of school. I also look forward to be a part of the student body, making new friends, and going to sporting events.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I have many interests and my favorite hobby is hunting. I love to be outdoors and to be with nature. This is very relaxing to me and it allows me to clear my brain of unpleasant thoughts or memories that may occur. My main interest is agriculture. I love agriculture and this why I am pursuing a degree in agriculture.

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

I am very excited about getting involved in all of the clubs and bands at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I plan to join the Marching Pioneers. I am a bit nervous, but everyone says that it is an amazing experience. I received a phone call last week about some of the groups at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, and I am ecstatic to know that there is a Forensics group! I am also looking forward to all of the culture groups, and I hope to meet people from other countries. I really want to know about their culture and their language.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love reading, learning Spanish, meeting new people from anywhere in the world, and learning words and phrases in foreign languages. I am very interested in learning about cultures and languages from all over the world. I also like to play my tuba, and I really like to sing. I will sing almost anywhere. In my free time, I love to cross-stitch. Not many people my age can say that they like to cross-stitch. It is very enjoyable and calming.

Stephanie's Thank You Note

I would like to thank the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation for selecting me as a recipient of this scholarship, and I would like to thank the donors for making this scholarship possible. My parents also deserve a thank you; they keep me in line and have helped me through my college preparation process.
