Major at UW-Platteville: Computer Science

What is your favorite thing about UW-Platteville? Definitely the guys on the cross country team. We're a little crazy, but have a lot of fun here on campus.

Why did you choose UW-Platteville? It eventually came down to that I knew that UW-Platteville had a good Computer Science program, the cost was about right, and that my head coach in high school knew Coach Antczak from his past coaching experience.
