University of Wisconsin - Parkside Reviews
Although I am not a full time college student at The University of Wisconsin Parkside, every experience I have had at the University, has made me feel at home. UW-Parkside has a great variety of positive, helpful group of professors. Along with the professors, the University has a great environment for meeting new people and various opportunities for clubs, athletics and being involved in the community. Beside the environment, the school has a gorgeous campus! The view is breathe taking. Overall, The University of Wisconsin Parkside is the perfect campus.
I haven’t registered but I was accepted. The first time I saw the school I immediately felt that this was the place I would call home for the next four years of my life. As I walked into the university, I was treated like one of their own. I am in the process of registering and committing to the school. I even found my roommate on my visit! The university is clean and I love that the buildings are connected together and I can be under one roof for the day. A major plus during the cold long winter months. UWParkside seems to really get their students involved whether you are a resident on campus or a commuter. I also like that the graduates have a very high percentage of job placement upon graduation. I am looking forward to becoming a Ranger! Check out UWParkside..You’ll be glad you did!
The University of Parkside is a great school. From the people I have interacted with at Parkside are super nice. The faculty are great and super helpful. My professors so far have been great at trying to see their students succeed. Professors try their best to provide an easy understanding for students. If you just communicate with your professor they will provide the best answer they can give. The scenery is also very green! The view on campus is beautiful. There is a park located next to the University, I love to take my dog on walks on the nature paths. A lot of my fellow classmates seem eager to meet me and many other students. The school has very positive energy when just walking around campus, even in the winter. I love my school and the education it provides!
