What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
I love the campus atmosphere, being from a graduating class of 32, platteville is the perfect size. I guess one thing that the guys like, the guy to girl ratio is 2:3, keeping them happy! It's not too city like, it has the town and necessities, but it's also very country...we have the largest M to climb!
Cassandra from Oconto Falls, WI
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.
Nicole from Hortonville, WI
This college is a rated 8 for me
Jordan from Milwaukee, WI
Platteville has a great campus layout, its not too small or too big. The professors all seem very nice and willing to help you when you need it. Also the classes are perfect sizes, the most students in a class would probably be about 30, which means you wont just be a number to your professor.
