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

There are so many things that I am excited about experiencing at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. One of these things includes the classes, especially Criminal Justice, Forensic Investigation, and Spanish. Another thing I am excited for is the experience of staying in a dorm and meeting new people. The last major thing that I am excited for is the intramurals. It is a great way to stay active and meet new people, as well as having some friendly competition. I'm more than ready to become a student at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville!

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My main hobby has two parts; playing softball, and umpiring it. I spend most of my summers playing and umpiring softball games. I've been playing since I was seven years old and I've been umpiring for four years now. Although my playing career is coming to an end, I hope that my umping career will last a long time. Another thing I like to do is puzzles. I've even not known what the puzzle will look like, yet I still completed it in a day because I become very determined to finish it.
