Meet Our Students
Degree Goal: BSN, Nursing
I grew up in Richland Center, Wisconsin, and I currently attend the University of Wisconsin-Richland. I chose to attend this college because I knew it was the most affordable college in the University of Wisconsin System and I could also live at home while I pursued my Associates Degree. I have been very impressed with the knowledge and dedication of my professors and the numerous activities that are available to students. I chose to be involved with theatrical performances on campus as well as the faith-related club InterVarsity. Both of these activities have helped me connect with like-minded individuals on campus and make new friends. After I receive my Associates Degree I hope to transfer to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and receive a B.S.N. in nursing. I recommend the University of Wisconsin-Richland to any student who wishes to receive a quality education.
Likes UW-R for the Small Classes
I’m 19 years old and I attend University of Wisconsin-Richland. I decided to attend UW-Richland because I wanted to experience college at a comfortable pace in smaller classes before I went to a four-year college. I like that the professors all want you to succeed. They are understanding and flexible when you have conflicts.

I'd like to take the time to tell you why you should join the awesome community we have here at UW-Richland. For starters, the friendly atmosphere at UW-Richland is second to none. The teachers and staff are a very helpful and remarkable group that really enjoy being able to work one-on-one with their students, which really gives students here an added benefit. Being a small campus, it isn’t hard to walk around and see friendly faces wherever you go. There are many different sports, clubs, or activities that are offered which give added opportunities to meet new people. Attending UW-Richland has been a very smooth transition for me, and I want you to have that same opportunity. Set up a time to tour our campus so that you can see it for yourself. I hope to see you here next year. Go Roadrunners!
I'm Khalid Abdl-Haleem, a freshman here at UW-Richland, one of nine siblings and the fourth to come to UW-Richland. Going to school here at UW-Richland has been a great experience for me. I was home-schooled all my life and the teachers and staff here made the transition from being taught in a living room with two of my younger siblings, to sitting in a class room with more than ten times that as smooth as glass. Some things that helped in the change of environment were the possibilities to get involved. I am a Student Senator and a Campus Ambassador, so if you arrange a tour I might just be the one giving it. I recommend UW-Richland to any student from any where.
From: South Korea
I am a YFU international exchange student, a sophomore and a Student Senator at UW-Richland. This is my first experience studying in the USA. At first, everything was unfamiliar to me. Even worse, I was not comfortable with English. Many professors and friends helped me to improve my English and I am getting better. Now, I feel Richland is my second hometown :) I am planning to transfer to UW-Madison after graduation from UW-Richland. UW-Richland is the best place for studying--especially if you want to transfer to another school--because UW-Richland offers the Guaranteed Transfer Program and faculty are willing to help students. Since UW-Richland is not a big campus, you can ask questions to professors more easily. UW-Richland is perfect place to study. Start your college life at UW-Richland!
Student Senate President
I’ve lived in Richland Center all of my life. I am a sophomore at UW-Richland and the Student Senate President. The UW-Richland teachers are extremely supportive and willing to help. We have a wonderful tutoring service and fun activities for students all year long. It's a great place to meet new people and start your college experience. After getting my associates at UW-Richland, I plan to go to UW-Platteville to study Criminal Justice. No matter where life takes me, I will never forget my experiences at UW-Richland.
