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

I am mostly excited for the experience of going to college and studying in the field of mathematics. This will give me the experience of living on my own and get me ready for the real world. All my life I have been waiting for the chance to go to college and I could not be any more excited to start in the fall.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I am interested in pretty much anything that involves being active. Whenever I get a chance I love playing pickup basketball games, throwing around the football, or go fishing with my friends. As it gets warmer out, I love going to my lake house and spending time on my boat with my friends and family.

Maxwell's Thank You Note

I would like to express my gratitude for your generous Sun Prairie High School Community Scholarship. I felt very happy and fortunate to learn that I was the recipient of your scholarship. I plan on majoring in math with an emphasis on actuarial science when I attend UW-Platteville in the fall of 2013. During my time at Sun Prairie High School, I had a 3.85 GPA along with many extra-curricular activities. I hope to graduate and pass all of the actuarial exams and get a job in that field. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to that goal. By awarding me the scholarship in your name, you have lightened the financial burden on me which will allow me to focus more on my studying. Your generous donation has really inspired me to do well in college and give back to others. Hopefully one day I will be able to help students succeed in college just as you have helped me.
