What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?
I am most excited about being able to pursue a career that I've been looking forward to for almost three years. It's going to be a blast learning the ins and outs of my future profession. I also am excited to join the band program, I've been a part of band since fifth grade and plan to continue that for as long as possible, band has opened me up to countless opportunities to improve myself, both physically and mentally.
What interests and/or hobbies do you have?
I am most interested in Percussion instruments. I have always been a percussionist and always will be. All my section mates have been fantastic and helped me through tough times and we have made great memories throughout the years.
Jacob's Thank You Note
I can't thank you enough for your generosity. Going to college has not only been a goal of mine, but also a dream of my parents to see me graduate. I'd be one of the first in my family to fully graduate from college and the fact that you are willing to help me without even meeting me speaks mountains of kindness about your character.
