Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Having gone to UW-La Crosse for 3 years prior I have a good comparison to UW-Platteville. The major disappointment with UWP (specifically the ME program) is that over 75% of the professors I have had have no experience and they are foreign. First, I mentioned they are foreign because their accents are so strong that half the battle is understanding the explicit words that come out of their mouth. Second (most importantly) is that there is a HUGE difference between teaching and talking. The skills of teaching DO NOT EXIST in this new wave of young professors that make up the ME program. It really feels that UWP decided that saving money paying these new professors is more important than providing quality. In contrast, I now appreciate my UWL professors because they all had 10+ years experience. The bugs in there courses have been worked out and they found the best way to communicate the material to the students. If you don't believe me just check the rate my professor ratings. At UWL, I did not have a problem getting a semester with professors all over 4.0. At UWP, you will be lucky to have a professor over 2.5 and that is assuming they have been teaching long enough to have a rating. The head of the UWP ME department needs to take a long look at the current staff and actually care about their ability to convey the material they know in their heads. The current students are paying (a lot more than the cost of tuition) for the poor quality of this program.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2014

University of Wisconsin Platteville was one of the best choices I could have made as an 18 year old high school senior. UWP has a community feel with big perks. I was able to complete two field work positions during my undergrad, which directly influenced employers after graduation. Opportunities to study abroad are vast and the faculty and staff are supportive.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

I love the Biology Program, the faculty are awesome form a one and one connection with the students. They help you achieve your goals and have several research projects that students are able to assist with. The campus is really nice there are plenty of trails to hike on.

Degree: Veterinary Sciences/Veterinary Clinical Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is an amazing school with an array of programs to study and a widely diverse student body! I enjoyed on-campus programs and my classes were top-notch in terms of getting me ready for my post-collegiate career. I recommend Platteville to those especially interested in engineering or agricultural careers; you will not be disappointed!

Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Loved it. A very welcoming community with a great learning environment. Loved the cute little town with just enough to have something to do. Smaller campus so everything is "right there" all the time.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

I loved going to school at UW-Platteville and thought I got a great education. The class sizes were small and the professors were great. I know that I was well-prepared for the career I chose and I'm happy that I still get to stay involved.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011

They have one of the best Criminal Justice programs in the country with 3 emphasis' to choose from. The three are Corrections, Law Enforcement, and Forensic. Many schools with the CJ program don't have anything like that. They did get rid of their Social Work certification program, which could be helpful to a lot of people in this program. This campus has almost doubled in size since I graduated, and I can't believe how popular it has become!
