At the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, we recognize that the student experience is about much more than what you read in a textbook. Our College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture specializes in offering practical experience that brings educational concepts to life inside and outside the classroom. That’s why we’re proud to offer a wide variety of student engagement opportunities.
Whether you’re looking for on-the-job training through an internship or the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of an immersive study abroad experience, there are activities that meet your personal and professional goals. More than a resume builder, these student engagement offerings will help you explore new interests, discover potential career paths, and make friends with those who share your passions.
One of the main reasons I chose to study agriculture is so I would be able to have my community and neighbors benefit from my knowledge. I really appreciate and value those principles of the UW System and Wisconsin Idea.
My internship with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources was very rewarding ... I am grateful for all that I learned.
