UW-Platteville was my first college choice, and I could not see myself at any other college. I have had so many great experiences this past semester. Unfortunately, I am not very good at making friends, so the beginning of the year was a little rough. But once I finally found the right group of friends, college no longer seemed overwhelming and lonely. I was able to maintain a balance between my school work and my social life. College became enjoyable. I am looking forward to my next semester of college. My tip for prospective students would be to find that right group of friends because they will make their college experiences worth remembering. Everyone will find the right friends sooner or later. I took me two and a half months to find my friends. So to anyone who is having trouble finding friends, do not give up.
