Best thing about being a student at UW-Parkside: So many opportunities! Your professors and advisors really want to see you succeed and will help you in any way they can.
Why did you pick UW-Parkside: I was originally recruited to run here, but once I got here, I loved the small class sizes, the personal relationships I could form with my professors and classmates. I also love the location, right between Chicago and Milwaukee.
Best advice for getting the most out of college: Get involved! Try something new! Do not be afraid to do something outside of your comfort zone or to join a club that might not be related to your major. Do not skip class or skip studying.
