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

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville was the first college that I visited when making up my mind as to which college I would attend, and during the visit, it felt "right".  From the campus, to the students and advisors I met with, to the classrooms and the dorms.  I am very excited to attend the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and begin my journey.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Academically, I really enjoy the sciences; I'm not yet sure which specific area I will go into as I enjoy Chemistry, Biology and the general sciences.  Outside of school, I enjoy movies and books very much.  "Student" night at the movie theater each week has become an addiction for me and my friends.

Allegra's Thank You Note

I cannot thank the donors, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation, and all those who have made this scholarship possible.  The assistance that this scholarship provides will help to alleviate the costs of college and helps to remove some of the stress involved.  I enjoy volunteering as my family is involved in many events and groups in our town, so I know what it feels like to help others.  I plan to continue this during my life-time and "pay-forward" this gift that you have given to me with the education that this gift will help to provide.  Thank you.
