UW-Platteville is a smaller school. I had originally applied for UW-Platteville as a criminal justice major, but switched to an elementary education major the summer before. I was glad that UW-Platteville had an education program because that meant I did not have to find a different school. I have been impressed with the education courses, considering it is not the largest selected major at UW-Platteville. Most of my classes, last semester, had an average class size of approximately thirty students. The smaller class sizes allow for a more personal relationship with each professor, which makes receiving help more doable. The professors, too, are able to reach out to the students more often. The workload was not anything that I could not handle. There were times when I felt very stressed, but that was not surprise to me. College is meant to be challenging. Keeping organized helps when many large assignments are due at the same time. Not only that, but keeping a positive attitude helped me relieve some stress throughout the year. All of the hard work paid off because I ended up with A's in every class. I am ready to take on the next semester.
