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

I'm very excited for everything at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I am planning on majoring in Mechanical Engineering and I can't wait to start classes that relate more specifically to my field. Not only that, but I am planning on living in the Women in STEM LLC and I am very excited to meet a whole bunch of new people with similar interests as myself. College is a new experience in itself, being away from home and independent, and I can't wait to have that experience.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

In my free time (which I haven't had much of lately), I really enjoy reading, being with friends, and being outside. I have always wanted to take up riding horses, but I just don't have the money to.

Amy's Thank You Note

I would like to greatly thank whoever helped to provide this scholarship. It may not seem like a lot to some people, but to me, any scholarship, is very helpful. I am the oldest of four children, and with my dad working full-time, but my mom only part-time, we never have very much extra money to spend after paying the bills, buying groceries, gas, etc. My parents would love to help me pay for college, but they just do not have the ability to. Receiving this scholarship was amazing because that is $600 that I won't have to put on loans and pay back, and my goal is to put as little as I can on loans. So thank you again to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and the donors for making this scholarship possible.

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

I am most excited to be able to meet new people and hopefully join some clubs. I am sure I will have some new great stories to tell my family.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love to read books; any kind, any time. I also enjoy knitting and crocheting.

Emily's Thank You Note

Thank you the University of Wisconsin-Platteville so much for this scholarship. It will help me to have a better college experience knowing that part of my tuition is paid for.

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

I am excited just to experience college life in general. Everything from the classes to the sports to the friends I hope to make. It's going to be an entirely different world than the one I'm used to, and I'm looking forward to enjoying everything new that comes with college life. Now you've helped make it possible!

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love science and figuring out how the universe works, but I also love art (especially ceramics) and making things. If I had enough money, I would travel around the world experiencing all of the different cultures there are and enjoying nature. Unlike some other people, I don't have a specific area that interests me; if it's fun, then I'll do it!

Katherine's Thank You Note

Thank you so much for awarding me the Community Scholarship. I deeply appreciate it, and it helps with my tuition cost so much. I would have had to work an extra three weeks at work gain the same amount of money as this scholarship. Now I can save that money for more years of college. I am honored to have received this scholarship, and I hope you know how much it means to me. Thank you!!
