UW Stevens Point has been a wonderful school for me. Every professor I've had thus far only wants to see their students succeed and are willing to take extra measures for that to happen.
The town itself is on the small side (~25,000), but there are plenty of activities on campus to keep you from being bored.
Ultimately, UWSP is what you make of it. I'be been incredibly fortunate in the people I've met, the classes I've taken and the opportunities that have been afforded me through this school. UWSP is definitely worth checking out!
Review University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point
I absolutely love my University. The University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point is about 9,500 students which makes it the perfect size school for me to feel comfortable meeting people, connecting with my professors more, and giving me the ability to have unique experiences on campus that I do not think larger schools can provide. UWSP also has the largest and leading Natural Resources program in the country which give me a huge advantage when it comes to curriculum and the quality of information I am being taught. While we are the largest Natural Resources undergraduate program, I would like to see our school doing more to be sustainable; we have programs in place like our recycling and our new bike shelter, but I think there is more that we could be doing. Other than that, I think that the school is great and really gives students more experience in their field of study than other larger schools might.
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is dedicated to educating the next generation of natural resource professionals through an experience-based curriculum. An example of this dedication is the coveted tradition/right of passage of Treehaven. All College of Natural Resource (CNR) majors must attend this six-week field experience techniques course in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. This rigorous experience entails two weeks of forestry courses, two weeks of soil courses, one week of a water course, and one week of a wildlife course. During this time, students are working directly with exert professors in their field while using the latest technologies available. Students going electroshocking in rivers and lakes to see the different species of fish present and estimate diversity, use Sherman traps to catch small mammals and estimate diversity, and timber cruise a 40-acre parcel of land to take an inventory and eventually create a mock auction of the parcel.
