I am an avid runner so I have a pass to the Strength Center
in the Health Enhancement Center and run through the Schmeekle Reserve
when the weather's nice. I also enjoy reading and writing poetry, along
with hanging out with as many people as I can. I have been involved
with the music department in ensembles
and have been part of Cornerstone Press
Why did you choose to attend UWSP?
I chose UWSP for its small campus atmosphere, but at the same time being
big enough to help me get to where I need to go. The campus itself is
really well kept and beautiful in all seasons, which definitely makes it
easier going to classes. The professors were able to remember me from
my visit when I was a senior in high school to my freshman year at UWSP.
That’s something unique.
Favorite UWSP memory:
Probably going to hockey games
with my girlfriends. It can be really cold on the walk to the ice arena
and back, and there are always some great memories that come out of
What do you like most about going to UWSP?
I really like the friendly atmosphere. Whether you're eating and the
servers are being really friendly, or you're in class and your professor
has ample office hours to help you out, there is always a friendly face
that can point you in the right direction. My experience so far here
has been nothing but positive, and when I leave I am certain that I will
be prepped to the max to achieve my goals.
What do you like best about the Stevens Point community?
I like how close and family-like the community treats you when you're a
student. They just kind of absorb you into their daily life, and a lot
of the community is very interested in what you're doing in school.
How has your interaction with professors benefited your education?
They have all positively encouraged me to strive further than I thought I
was originally capable of. A few in particular do an excellent job at
mentoring, for further schooling and future classes, and others have
such an open door policy, they make sure you are doing well socially and
What are your career goals?
I plan to go to graduate school to further my study in English,
specifically poetry and creative writing, to become a professor and
How has UWSP prepared you for your future?
I have learned to become a better rounded, more accepting individual.
UWSP teaches you to grow as a person, so when you leave the
undergraduate portion of UWSP, you can tackle the walls that are in
front of your future.
What advice would you give to a new UWSP student?
Take the time out of your class schedule to visit the unique places and
programs on campus. You never know how much you're going to enjoy
something unless you try it. Also, don't be afraid to use the residence halls
to their utmost - take part in programs in the hall! It's a great way to meet your future friends.
