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

I am extremely excited to be attending UW-Platteville. Platteville has an awesome Criminal Justice program that I am excited to be a part of. For almost my entire life I have wanted to get into law enforcement, and I cannot imagine attending any other university to do so. From what I hear, the Criminal Justice Department has a "pig dig" every year, and I hope that I will someday have the opportunity to participate in that. I also cannot wait to be part of the Criminal Justice Association at UW-Platteville.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I have to say that I love hunting. Almost year round I am either hunting or doing something to prepare for hunting, whether putting in food plots or cutting shooting lanes for tree stands. In the summer, I also do not mind playing a round of golf here or there with family and friends. We usually play that the loser buys ice cream or sodas, and unfortunately, I buy quite a bit, but the most important thing is that we have fun. I also hope to soon be following the footsteps of my father and brother by joining the local volunteer fire department. I already dedicate my time to the fire department whenever I can and hope to continue to do so as a member.

Cory's Thank You Note

From young on, I have always wanted to get into law enforcement, and as I get closer to graduating high school and attending college, my dreams are closer to becoming reality. Because of the help of the donors to the Foundation, I will someday be able to live my dreams, so I would like to give the donors my sincere thanks.
