Major at UW-Platteville: Environmental Engineering

What is your favorite thing about UW-Platteville? I love everything about Platteville, I mostly like how it is a smaller school so I know a lot of the student population, and professors know students by name!

Why did you choose UW-Platteville? I chose UWP for the engineering, and it is D3 so I can still be an athlete, and it is affordable.
