What Students Are Saying

3.47 Average Rating
Consider what is truly important to you in a school. Think about how much you are going to try to benefit from your college career or if you are just looking for a party. There are so many small aspects that are overlooked when people choose schools, which is why there are best-kept secrets like UW-Parkside.
Marie from Milwaukee, WI
Take as many credits as you can handle. If you're paying to be a full time student, that's 12 credits right there. Any credits between 12 and 21, I believe, are considered 'free', so, since you're paying for the minimum package already, why not get the free upgrade? Also, get the mean plan. Anywhere on campus that sells food will take the meal plan on the Ranger Card, and you can even find discounts too.
Subway is amazing, especially their soups. You'll be relying heavily on them for food after a while, for the cafeteria food gets to be repetitive after a while, but if you like burgers and fries, the cafeteria's your kind of place.
Also, Parkside is one of the schools where you have to buy or rent all your books. And you have to pay for paper when printing in the library. Not so fun. :/
