I largely believe the college depends on the person. For me, Whitewater felt like home. It still does. I wake up with a smile on my face and I know no matter what, today will be a good day. For prospective students, you should attend for these three reasons:
1. We're a family here.
You will never be alone. Someone will always seek you out to be friends or a companion or lend a hand. I know I was skeptical of this prospect at first, but after being here a few months, I feel like I have a family here as well.
2. It feels like home
I walk down the sidewalks everyday with a smile. I call this place my home, not where I grew up. I feel free to be myself in this environment. It truly has become my home.
There's no way not to be involved in something at Whitewater. There's at least two dozen clubs, sports teams, intramural sports teams, musical ensembles, fraternities, sororities, and much more. What ever you choose to join, it's guaranteed that you'll succeed and you'll find a family and friends along the way.
