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

I am excited to have a great new experience by making new friends, finding new interests, and helping to prepare myself for the future. I am a bit shy when it comes to making new friends. I also love to have fun, and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville has many activities that seem very entertaining. I can't wait to see how many clubs and activities I will be able to take part in such as a quidditch team. I am also excited to learn how to be a teacher. I love working with kids and I hope that I may someday help them better themselves.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I have been interested in theater from a very young age. Something about being on stage gives me more confidence than anything else. I hope to incorporate theater classes into my schedule along with my elementary education classes. The only hobby I really have is collecting. I'll keep any little knick-knack I find interesting. In the past I have collected key chains, monkeys, snow globes, magnets, and posters. My most cherished collection is my rubber duck collection. I have over 300 rubber ducks in my collection and it is still growing.

Erinn's Thank You Note

When I started filling out applications and other forms I was scared to go to college. However, I am also really excited to start this next chapter of my life. I look forward to the wonderful years at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville as well as the years beyond that. It is with your help that I am able to pursue my dreams. Thank you so much for supporting my education and my first step into the world.
