Major at UW-Platteville: Environmental Engineering

What is your favorite thing about UW-Platteville? I love the small class sizes, great professors, and the friendships I've made being a member of the UWP XC team.

Why did you choose UW-Platteville? I chose UW-Platteville because it was the only ABET accredited environmental engineering program in Wisconsin and I could run cross country.
