What Students Are Saying

3.56 Average Rating
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is a great college to attend if you prefer a generally smaller sized campus. Class sizes tend to be smaller as a result which I find very beneficial. Additionally most professors are welcome to questions and will often meet outside of class to help when asked.
Daniel from Tomahawk, WI
Point is a safe environment because it's such a small and quiet town, that whomever goes there, will feel secured . It is also very friend and can really pull in people into clubs to make them feel welcome. Lastly, UWSP is a college that really wants their students to do well academically but also in their future when they graduate from there.
