    I could never live on campus, would be absolutely boring if i did. There are many opportunities for various majors. Campus is nearby many restaurants. Sometimes I just wish there was more going on, however, there are many clubs that are fun and interesting. I csme here ehen I was little for a music camp every summer between 2000 and 2005 (5 to 10 years old). I got to stay in the dorms with my parents and sister for a week so coming back after all those years was really cool and nostalgic. ...Continue reading

    Educate to Career does a survey yearly that compares the amount it costs to attend a college and the number of graduates that enter the labor market. UWSP ranked first among all schools in Wisconsin and 3rd out of 1200 schools across the country. (I know this because of my job.) So it's a really good school money wise. There's just not much to do. ...Continue reading

    Overall, UWSP is a nice campus. If you apply yourself and are involved you will have no problems. I enjoy my classes and have a genuine love of my campus. I have met so many great faculty.

    Its a small campus so you get to know a lot of people! It's a very eco friendly campus.

    If you're not here for something in natural resources, teaching, or politics, go to a different school. Needless to say, switched majors and am not doing chemistry. A much better department all around! It's pretty isolated and can get boring. The dining hall is really bad, but the food at the DUC is the greatest. The bus system is pretty spotty. The worst thing that ever happened to this campus was it's internet. I have literally not been able to submit assignments. ...Continue reading

    Nice small-town campus with small class sizes that have caring instructors who get to know you. I enjoy the small-town feel. I was surprised by how much there actually was to do on campus, and even off campus! Great Library. Food is ok, options get tiresome after a while (I think that's with any place though). Good amount of clubs. Internet speed is ridiculous with the ethernet cord, wireless is good most of the time The campus is amazing, and the people of Stevens Point are incredible, you'll feel at home in a matter of hours after moving in. ...Continue reading

    Great overall professor. While he is passionate which is always a plus, he tends to be a little long-winded (Class tends to end 2-3 minutes late).

    He's very knowledgeable and is good at explaining concepts. However his lectures are very dry and boring. He does NOT use power points, just lectures directly from the book of notes he wrote. There is rarely any visual aids or pictures in color to help you learn which means there are no lecture slides posted to D2L but he does post voice recording ...Continue reading

    She is so wordy that she becomes hard to follow. Lecture slides have so much fluff to pick through to find whats important and she speaks this way too. She also consistently makes grammatical and spelling errors. Very hard to follow and exams are difficult so STUDY. Definitely come to class, she gives pop quizzes often. She does offer extra credit. ...Continue reading

    Bell was a great professor. I put off this class for quite a while, but glad that I got it with Bell, who freely admitted to being a hippie. In lab, not only did you see the plants, do the lab, but he put out examples of how they are used today - which was something that was very useful to me ...Continue reading

    I'm never really sure where she comes up with the grades. She and every other teacher I have ever had have different views on the rules of MLA and paper content.

    She is seriously such a sweetheart. You can joke around with her and she genuinely cares about what you have to say. She encourages participation a lot, and you'll have a lot of group work (in class). Overall an awesome class with an awesome teacher. Excited to take another class with her! She always has the best interest of her students in mind, explains assignments thoroughly, and is a fair grader.

    Do not take his class. Horrible professor. Constantly gets off topic, his comments are funny at times but has nothing to do with class. He is NOT clear with his assignments.

    Dr. Dresang is very disorganized in her BIO385 lab lectures. She tends to talk in circles but never fully connects them. She makes lab take much longer than it should need to because of her circle talking. She almost knows too much to be able to convey the material well to her students. Recommendation: Just don't. ...Continue reading

    This lady cancelled class one day because it was windy. Cancelled last minute and it was an early class. She commutes and doesn't want to be there. Makes all paper submissions be in person and not online, when the whole entire class could be online. The quizzes every week are open book. Not easy nor friendly to talk to. ...Continue reading

    Great overall professor. While he is passionate which is always a plus, he tends to be a little long-winded (Class tends to end 2-3 minutes late). Go to class, usually topics discussed in class will be on quizzs and the midterm. He expects a lot of out of a survey class, but if you are willing to do the work - then I recommend him. ...Continue reading
