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

I am excited to be a part of a community that is fairly small, yet is also very diverse. I enjoy smaller communities and universities because it means the professors will know you by your name and they will have time for one-to-one conversations if you have any questions or concerns.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I enjoy reading, working out, and watching movies.

Jenny's Thank You Note

To Whom This May Concern,

I would like to wholeheartedly thank you for selecting me as a recipient of your scholarship and for the charitable $500.

I am going to start my post-graduate education at University of Wisconsin-Platteville as an undergraduate freshman. I am currently undecided in my major, but I am tilting towards majoring in Chemistry in hopes to pursue a career in pharmacy. The aid that you have provided will greatly reduce the financial burden on me and my family, allowing me to focus more on my education. I hope that my hard work will make my family proud of me for being a first-generation college student.

Thank you again for choosing me to receive your generous gift. I am beyond grateful for the opportunities it will provide me.

Thomas Lambert

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

I look forward to being able to attend UW-Platteville for many reasons. Firstly, I will be exposed to a variety of different people who will impact my life. Along with that, I will get the chance to learn more about what I want to do with my life. Next, I will actually decide what I want to do with my life. Lastly and most importantly, I look forward to learning more about myself along the journey that is college.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My name is Thomas Lambert and I am a senior at Platteville high school right now. I am in cross country and track and field, but I was also in baseball, basketball and soccer. Because I have been and I am currently in cross country and track, I run regularly. It is very enjoyable to run with friends and it certainly helps people bond with others. Along with official sports, I like to play ultimate frisbee with friends on occasion.
