A lesser known campus in the UW public school system, the University of Wisconsin Parkside was founded back in 1968. It's one of the newest UW schools, and because of that it is greatly under appreciated by the majority of the state. Unlike schools such as UW-Madison or UW-Milwaukee, UW-Parkside hasn't had a chance to establish it's reputation as a quality and worth-while school to attend, so many people use it as a fall back option. However, Parkside is a fantastic school with a diverse campus.
Greg's parent's weren't thrilled when the only school he was accepted to was University of Wisconsin Parkside, but four years and a bachelors degree later, they realized he had been in good hands.
