The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is a public institution and part of the UW System. It is the oldest public institution of higher learning in Wisconsin. UWP has a selective admissions process and the most popular majors are engineering, business and agriculture. The school is home to a student-run urban tomato farm.
Platteville is perfect for anyone who wants a great education in a fun place without being overwhelmed by a city. It's a small campus in a small town, so don't expect the UW - Madison experience. That being said, UW- Platteville is an excellent place to experience college and spend 4 (or more) great years.
