"Attended this University from 15'-19' and received my Bachelor's in OSH. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The University is beautiful. If you want true one-on-one with your professors and colleagues, this is the place to go."

"UW-Whitewater has been a great college for me the last four years. The campus is smaller, with all buildings less than 15 minutes away. Class size is relatively small (depending on major) so the one-to-one feeling with professors is great. Whitewater is the perfect little town for those that don't want a huge city feel!"

"I loved my experience at UW-Whitewater. While I learned so much in the classroom, Whitewater benefited me most outside of the classroom. UWW is the perfect size; it is large enough that there are ample opportunities, but small enough so that each person can thrive in these opportunities. Each student at UWW has a face and a name; your professors will know and care about you. Whitewater is also the perfect location - located in the middle of Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison. Access to these three major cities allows for excellent career opportunities. I loved my experience at UW-Whitewater and I know you will too. Go Warhawks!"

"I received my Bachelor's of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a minor in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater and I loved every minute of my time there. As a small program, all my professors went out of their way to help me succeed in the classroom and achieve my career goals. All my professors knew who I was and genuinely got to know me on a personal level. As a four year student athlete my professors, coaches, and advisors communicated seamlessly in order to provide me with positive outcomes in the classroom and on the court. Being a student athlete provided me with opportunities that I never dreamed of including competing and traveling to Costa Rica, 4 trips to the NCAA tournament, regularly volunteering at a local nursing home, and friendships that will last a lifetime."

"UW-Whitewater provided high quality resources for students with special needs. With the accommodations they have provided, they assisted students in job opportunities, exam spaces, and individualized education plans. The cultural atmosphere in the Art Department is authentic, sincere, and compassionate. The technical aspects taught in each of my courses provided a high amount of versatility, strength, and personal growth."

"I was a transfer student to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in the Spring of 2008. The transfer process between a private school to a public school was extremely easy. I had a student advisor who met with me for freshman orientation, showed me around campus, and even introduced me to my Resident Advisor. I was able to integrate very fast since the campus is on the smaller side. My professors were all very knowledgeable and willing to help in all areas of course work. I would recommend joining a group or program on campus as it makes your college time much more enjoyable. I was a member of the University Cheerleading All Girls team and a member of the ROTC program. I would recommend the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater to anyone who wants a small town feel for college with ample amounts of opportunities."

"The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is an accredited, wonderful school to attend if you are interested in pursuing an accounting degree. A majority of the Accounting department at Whitewater has worked in public accounting, and provide students with a wealth of real-life experiences and hands on training. The school offers an amazing internship program to Juniors, where you earn credits AND get paid during a twelve week experience. I was able to secure a job a year ahead of graduating through this program. I'd recommend this school time and time again to anyone serious about a career in accounting."

"UW-Whitewater is a great school. The academic advisors worked with me to make sure I could graduate quickly and keep working. They helped me transfer as many credits as possible from my Associate's Degree while tailoring the program to me. The instructors I had were all very helpful allowing me to meet right after class or through email and always worked with me till I got my questions answered."

"UW-Whitewater, while in a small community, offers a diverse range of academic courses and social events to choose from. After leaving Whitewater and entering the workforce, I felt more prepared than many new teachers. Because of the excellent reputation Whitewater has for their teacher preparation program, I was able to find a job quickly and I felt prepared to be the best teacher I could be."

"I loved Whitewater! It was a very affordable school, making many updates. It wasn't too big either. I am not a city person, so I felt comfortable at the smaller school that is still rated pretty highly among the public school in Wisconsin."

"I had so much fun at Whitewater. If you can join a sport or some kind of club I highly recommend it. Being on the tennis team was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Also, pick a major you are passionate it about because you will be in that job for a long time. It is hard to go back after college and start over."

"Not too big of a campus, but not too small either. Great facilities, teachers are pretty thoughtful, overall, and the campus buildings are being updated every year. I liked how new a lot of the buildings were and how they keep the old ones fairly updated too."

"The pros of the program is that the class sizes are small, therefore you get to know your professors and peers and build rapport with them! A con is that the classrooms do not have a bright atmosphere for counseling!"
