Overall Experience: I've had some terrible prof's, and some excellent ones. Generally the latter ones are found in major. They are always willing to help you succeed and help out, as long as you are willing to put in the work too. Go to class, take notes, talk to the prof 3-4 times after class through out the semester, and after tests and they will be much more friendly toward you. Class sizes are perfect courses offered are some what limited at times.

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from here is the same, if not better then a degree from Madison or Eau Claire. I don't believe there is an alumni network. There are employment opportunities brought to campus, but they are catered mostly to the Natural Resources and Business Majors, there is not a lot of support for employment opportunities out there for most majors. The career services folks are not terribly helpful either, but it is worth going to there programs. Most of them are arrogant it seems

Nightlife: Never been into the night life scene here all that much, but there is a bar downtown for everyone.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I'm not going to lie there is a lot of camo on campus but it is one of the biggest and best Natural Resource programs. The people who wear camo are generally very nice. There is a good mix of outdoorsy kids, preppy kids, hipster kids, and just regular non-type kids. Everyone is super friendly and most people get along well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus' polices are ones that you see at pretty much any other university. They are stricter on some things more than others. The dorm policies are decided by residential living but how strict or not they are followed out by the Hall Directors and Community Adviser's of each dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are great, I feel that I actually can talk to them and go to them for help without being sacred. With my adviser's help I have been able to get into every class I need on time and am on a track with my four-year plan. Many of friends at different universities pursuing the same degree are on at least 5-6 year plans which include summer and winter classes.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In my program, I'm currently getting emails at least a week about many jobs before and after graduation and different organizations offer help on resumes, interviews, and how to apply within different districts. Career services is always putting on different workshops from resume writing, interview skills, graduate school information, job searching information.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the off-campus dining is at least a 5 minute walk from the dorms. The higher quality restaurants are downtown of right out side of Stevens Point. The meal plan on campus is great because it gives the options of going to Homegrown Cafe (an all locally and as natural as possible cafe) and Food Court, which includes salad bar, Mexican food, Asian food, diner food, subs, and paninis as well as the Dining Center. It's usually possible to use your meal plan to avoid the trip to get food but there are some good close by restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: As a student worker in the Involvement Office on campus I know that there is always something going on and they make sure as many people, on campus and off campus, as possible know about it. I have two jobs on campus and I found using the job search service was extremely easy. Many of my friends found jobs they love through it as well. All the professors I have encountered so far are excellent and are always reminding students of things they can take advantage of to become better students and help them with that particular class. The food isn't bad either and with the plan their is a large variety of places to eat at. Overall, UWSP is everything I wanted in a college campus and I couldn't be happier!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I can't talk about varsity but intramurals at Point are awesome! It's easy to get involved and a lot of fun.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It could be a lot worse! Some dorms have been remodeled recently while others not since the 90s. The latter are without A/C and depending on the sort of person you are that's either an atrocity or an adventure. I spent my first year in an A/C free hall and it's frankly not that bad so long as you've a fan. Sometimes kids walk around outside at night and into the wee hours. Why, I honestly don't know but they can be pretty raucous. If you're a light sleeper consider investing in some earplugs or the aforementioned fan. Despite these slight drawbacks and others (like living in a shoe box with someone), living in the dorms is really fun and a great experience. Some halls are more social than others and some floors are designated as alcohol-free or as quiet floors.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: While there is a lot of camo and blaze orange as well as skinny jeans and hipster glasses, the kids at Point are diverse - inside and out. But like any school, be it high school or college, there are those categorical groups (you know - jocks, geeks, princesses, basket cases...) present. Yes, cliques stink because of their exclusivity but their forming is based on the shared experiences and/or interests of people and that's a good thing - connection. But connecting with others whose backgrounds, ideas, tastes, etc. are different than yours is also good and arguably an important part in becoming a mature individual. Just get to know people!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus. At night I'm more cautious but the streets and paths are fairly well-lit and there are those blue emergency light station-things placed throughout campus. The residence halls' doors are locked for a certain period during the night and Saflok key cards are used to enter at that time.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Just be on time and watch deadlines!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I have no problem with the school's strictness. Their policies make sense and are in place for the betterment of everyone.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Though its colors are purple and gold, Point is pretty green - harhar! The school has taken many initiatives to be more environmentally sound and there are numerous trees and lawns throughout campus. And of course there's the nature reserve, Schmeeckle. The campus buildings are a mishmash of different architectural eras/styles. Old Main is a gorgeous old building and so too is the Communication Arts Center. The Union as well as the Suites are new and hip while several other buildings have that cold, boring industrious look to them. However, their inside facilities are pretty great - especially the Noel Fine Arts Center.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Honestly not my scene so I can't really say. I'm a nerd and I came to college to study, lol. But there are other things you can do at night on and around campus. You just have to look and/or be creative. Lots of concerts and student org activities. And of course you can just get together with friends and watch movies, eat junk food, play board games, et cetera.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life seems pretty nonexistent at Point. I frankly don't mind.

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys are really outdoorsy and wear a lot of camo and blaze orange. Expect lots of Packers attire from both genders. People don't really "dress up" here.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If you're in an unrenovated dorm, housing is terrible. If you're in a renovated dorm, housing is good.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I never heard any incidents of crime while I was at Point. I also didn't use Student Health Services, but have heard good things about it.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't use off-campus housing, so I can't review it.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The DUC and NFAC are the two prettiest buildings on campus. There's a ton of green space on campus, as well as Schmeeckle Reserve off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Go to Point if you're interested in Natural Resources. I think it's the biggest college and is nationally ranked.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I had an awesome experience in the CLS major. I loved my professors and the classes I took were very interesting. This is definitely a school to check out if you are interested at all in CLS. My advisor was also awesome!
