It's a lovely campus filled with many people with their own stories to follow. Everyone seems happy and the teachers teach as they can. Not every teacher teaches the same, so sometimes it feels like their teaching method doesn't help, but they are always offering on their syllabus and email to help as best as they can to compensate for any confusion. Something i'd like to change is perhaps the trash that's left in the parking lots, and over all the amount of parking spots nearby the campus. There never seems to be enough space for everyone, forcing many to relocate to get a proper parking spot.

UW - Parkside is a great college! Parkside has knowledgeable professors, helpful staff, and friendly students. I enjoy it everyday!
As an English major, I really like how the professors are always willing to help me outside of class with a subject I was struggling on. The subjects chosen usually interested me and once you get through a certain part of the major it's nice to be able to see a variety of classes. I wasn't stuck with reading the same type of material over and over, even though we did continue to mention what we learned in other classes. Especially 266 which is Literary Analysis, in which we learn all about various philosophies that apply to the area of interest.
