3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Courses are good. Need better students advisors for students who are unsure of their major.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you are a part of Greek life you aren't judged for choosing to do so and vice versa.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports aren't a huge deal, they are definitely attended but they are not the main attraction on our campus. But we do have a very nice athletic center that is free to all students, which is something not all schools have( many require students to pay membership fees).

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the classes I'm in, even as a first semester freshman I was already talking classes in my major. There is a great sense of community here and a lot of things that you can be involved in. I love the small campus and class sizes. And it's a beautiful campus.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Personally, peer pressure has been a thing for me and I have never given into it.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: One major reason that allows me to feel safe on campus is the emergency boxes located all around campus. If you feel in danger you can hit the button on it, and a police officer will show up. I have heard before that in general if you feel unsafe the officer will drive you to where you need to be.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes at the University of Wisconsin Platteville provide the students with the correct sizes for the teacher to physically engage with classes. I enjoy when my professors actually show that they care about you and want you to learn. Rather than just teaching a class in general.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center here doesn't provide the students with much information at all.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on which resident hall you live in will determine your experience. I currently live in an all girls dorm, which is filled with lots of drama that I don't want to hear about ever. I know for example, many of my friends love their resident hall and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Therefore, I would say it depends on the students in the building and where.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One of my favorite experiences at the University of Wisconsin - Platteville by far is my involvement with the softball team. The team gave me the opportunity to easily meet new friends. In college, I believe it's vital to have friends, without friends my schoolwork takes over my life and forces me to become stressed out. Friends give us the opportunity to take a break from our responsibilities and do exciting things from time to time.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I never feel worried walking around platteville

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors know their stuff, sometimes its just difficult to understand at times

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career fairs and the amount of businesses that look for hiring students is pretty impressive here

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Res Life is is a little more strict than other UW systems, but overall i think it molds out better students because of it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a member of Greek life, so I can only speak as a non Greek member when saying the generalization is that they are the party environment and the community aspect is kept in the shadow.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They have all the tools for it to be amazing, you just need to be lucky and come at the right times so you can actually use them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like how the university caters more to the students than other universities I have heard about. The biggest complaint I have form this school is that there is a fair number of professors that have extremely thick accents that are rather difficult to understand at times. Other than that, I would recommend UW-Platteville to anyone considering coming here.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Platteville has a very safe environment, and very few people get sexually assaulted. There are emergency buttons all over campus, and we have good campus police.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The proffesors are very helpful and care about the students. They are paid to teach, not to do research, so professors are dedicated to helping their students. The courses are excellent for each major, but I do wish that there were more sections. The class sizes are great with an average of 28 students, so getting help is easy.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are career fairs twice a year, and companies hire many Platteville students. It is very easy to find an internship or co-op and many of them turn into careers.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of the traditional residence halls on campus are fairly close together and are a short walking distance to classes. There is a good social atmosphere and everyone gets along well. Some residence halls are better than others, but they all have pretty good living comditions.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not currently involved in Greeks life, but there are many students who are. Greeks and non-Greeks view each other indiferently and Greek life only affects the social atmosphere if you are in it. There are many Greek housing available, but Greek life isn't the main part of campus life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not currently involved in any sports aty university, but there are many great sports programs and clubs. There is great school spirit especially towards football, but I feel that the other sports don't recieve as much recognition. Our athletic facilities are great and have many opportunities for students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience at the University of Wisconsin Platteville, has been great so far and I would choose it again if I could start over. The academic programs are great and there are small class sizes with no TAs, so you are always taught by the proffesor. Also, all of the professors have office hours and are very helpful. Platteville is a smaller campus, and there are many communities and clubs to join. I am in the women in STEM LLC at Platteville and have been ejoying every minute of it. My LLC does many activities together and it was a great way to make friends.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I wish college campuses took sexual assault as seriously as they did plagiarism.
