School is cost efficient, good size, and good distance from home. Dorms were all they crack up to be especially with roommates. My roommate and I got in a big argument. She placed unfair rules expecting me to follow them to the T. Complained she had no one to talk to even 5 usually were sitting on my bed. I wasn’t allowed to have anyone in my room especially when she’s gone. Moving was the hard part. I found someone to room with but dropped out so the housing department moved me to Ostrander. I was fine with it but they tried getting me to pay extra for the room I was placed in since it was a single room. I had to go to the dean to get that charge lifted. I believe the housing department should look out for their students better and stop trying to manipulate to get more money. It's pathetic.
The main reason I chose to go to the University of Wisconsin-Superior is because I love the size of the campus because it isn't too big, but not too small either. The class sizes are perfect so you have time and resources to interact with your professors and peers. The cost of tuition is also a huge plus, because you get the whole experience of a university at such a low cost. The only downside to the University of Wisconsin-Superior would probably have to be the city it's located, and I only say that because there isn't much to do in the small town.
