Considering the fact that the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater has always been my dream school, I may be a bit biased. My experience has been amazing and the campus is beautiful. People here are so nice and always willing to help out. The vibe on campus is very welcoming and the academics are outstanding. I absolutely love this school!
Review Your College
I enjoy Whitewater a lot. I wish a lot of the kids didn't go home every weekend. It's known as the "suitcase" school. I can see that Whitewater is growing bigger so maybe that will change in the future! Overall, I love the close family-feel Whitewater has! I also love how friendly everyone and how everyone holds doors for you! Very nice place to live and learn!
School spirit is really big in Whitewater. We are all part of the Warhawk family, we support one another; especially when it involves sports. Yes we have the usual football game and basketball games, but those aren't the only main events. Some events are swim and gymnastics that can be overlooked, but are just as exciting! We support each team and event and it is a great experience.
