Burlington, WI (I went to the same H.S. as Tony Romo!)
Where do you live?
Currently off-campus, but I lived on campus for 3 years and I loved
every minute of it. Dorm life, for me, was amazing and I really miss
it. The people who live around you may become your best friends. I
know I loved hanging out with our group of friends and we still keep in
contact even though we haven’t lived together for
Extracurricular / Campus Activities:
I love intramurals
is an amazing stress reliever! When I am not studying I love just
getting together with friends. When it is warm out we go for bike rides
on the Green Circle Trail
. Oh…and Pointer Hockey
games are sooo much fun.
Why did you choose to attend UWSP?
Not to be cheesy or anything, but I just had a feeling like I belonged
here when I took a tour my senior year in high school. And it turns out
I was right - I love it here.
Favorite UWSP memory:
I went on a freshman orientation trip called Pathways to Point
I went canoeing and fishing for a week up north in Michigan and it was
the best week of my college career. I met 8 other incoming freshmen
and I am still friends with most of them. It was so much fun and so
What do you like most about going to UWSP?
I love being able to make a walk from one part of campus to another and
almost always seeing someone that I know. This campus is not small, yet
not big. It is the perfect size for me.
How has your interaction with professors benefited your education?
The Education Department has the most amazing faculty. They are always
there to help you and their goal is to see you succeed. They are a huge
reason of why I am where I am today.
What are your career goals?
After I graduate I will hopefully have my own classroom in the Fall of 2010.
How has UWSP prepared you for your future?
I have acquired amazing ideas and information that will hopefully make
me a great teacher some day. I have also gained people skills that I
will use in the future. Also, as a requirement of the education program
we have to spend a certain amount of hours in the schools. I have met
many teachers who have given me tips and advice.
What advice would you give to a new UWSP student?
You get out of college what you put into it. That doesn’t mean that you
have to study 24/7, but it does mean that you need to do the work that
is expected of you. College is different than high school because your
professors will not beg you for your homework. Get your priorities
straight right away! My biggest regret about my time at UWSP is not
studying abroad. If you want to do it, DO IT! You will regret it if
