Michael Birenbaum

Michael Birenbaum

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

I think that it will be fun to be apart of different clubs that I couldn't be apart of at my high school because they didn't exist. I also don't want to have to rely on my parents and family as much as I do now because I will be able to learn more about myself.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I like to do anything in the outdoors that is challenging such as hunting and fishing. I have also found a love for fixing and learning how to maintain vehicles.

Michael's Thank You Note

Thank you very much for donating this money to me because I really want to get my Mechanical Engineering  degree so that I can have the job of my dreams. Before I received this letter saying that I was a recipient for this scholarship, I always thought that I wasn't good enough to win scholarship but this has tremendously boosted my confidence in being able to be a recipient of other scholarships. I am always worried about not having enough money to go to school but this has taken some of the weight off on my shoulders. Thank you very much for this donation to help me pursue the education needed to obtain my dream career. I hope that someday I can help future college students obtain something that is as important to them as this degree is to me. Thank you very much.

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

I'm excited to be exposed to what engineers do and learn how to be an engineer. I'm excited to live on campus, but a bit nervous as well. I'm looking forward to all the activities the university has for students and the clubs that are available to be a part of.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I enjoy Tae Kwon Do, playing my trumpet and the piano, exercising, and watching movies.

Emily's Thank You Note

I want to thank everyone who donated money toward my future education. I will use every bit of it as wisely and responsibly as possible. I think it gets harder every year for students to pay for college, so every bit helps. I am so grateful to receive this scholarship and I appreciate everything you do!

I really appreciate the scholarship. It will help me to pay for college and achieve my dream of a mechanical engineer. Also I hope to graduate college with little to no student loans, and every dollar towards my education gets me one step closer to that goal. As the recipient of this scholarship, I will do my best to represent Plymouth and all the wonderful lessons that I have learned while growing up in such a wonderful community. For all your help I sincerely thank you.
