UW-PLATTEVILLE: A VILLE FOR ALL

I opted for this college because of the smaller class sizes and because it was so close to family. I think the smaller size allows for more comfortability and inclusion. The rural area is nice as well.


Course Curriculum - 

It's engaging and challenging. The fact that class sizes are relatively small allows for great interactions between students and professors. In my opinion, this helps to create a more engaging environment. It also opens up more opportunities for learning and consequently the expansion of knowledge.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

DEXTER'S REVIEW

It was affordable and had a small student to teacher ratio. I also like that it highly rated degree programs. The school also has a lot of academic staff that are committed to student success. This school is also within 3 and 1/2 hours of my hometown.


Course Curriculum - 

I believe that the curriculum in my particular program is really unique. We were required to learn COBOL in depth which is one of the oldest programming languages. I believe that this will help us with job placement since many corporations have systems that still rely on COBOL. I also like how the school requires everyone to explore multiple courses that are not necessarily apart of your major in order to broaden your horizons.
