Below are just a few reasons why being a Pioneer student is different.

  • Faculty involvement: Although many of our faculty conduct research, UW-Platteville faculty’s primary role is instruction. They teach courses and advise and mentor students in their discipline and career aspirations. Compare this to other institutions where research is the primary duty and little to no faculty advising occurs.
  • Campus size: With about 8,000 students on campus, UW-Platteville sits perfectly in the “sweet spot” where campus life feels busy and bustling without being so big that it’s impersonal and intimidating.
  • Student involvement: The College of BILSA has over 36 active discipline-related student organizations as well as over 200 interest-related student groups. This provides numerous opportunities to have a remarkable undergraduate career all while developing leadership and technical skills and having fun.
