Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Life @ UWM blog. Here you will read what our students (and occasionally our staff) have to say about University Housing, UWM, Milwaukee, or just residence life, in general.
In University Housing, we are proud to have wonderful student employees. Did you know we hire over 300 student-employees each year (academic year and summer)? This summer, some of our more experienced student staff members will be writing blog entries to give our readers a glimpse of life around UWM during the summer. Others are working on tour videos of each of our buildings, so you get a feel for them before making your first visit to campus. Here's a teaser for the videos they are currently working on.
We were proud to see so many of our students (over 3,700) have their degrees conferred at our Commencement Exercises, held last weekend at the U.S. Cellular Arena, downtown. But now that we’ve sent our most recent group of alumni into the world, it’s time to turn the page to the entering class for Fall 2012.
If you are entering in Fall 2012, remember: we have a summer full of New Student Orientations, Preview Days, Move-In and Fall Welcome to complete before we start the Fall semester. Our goal for this blog is to continue those experiences and provide a wider-lens look at life at UWM, beyond the one or two-day Orientation or Preview experiences you may have had previously. We are excited for you to join us in August, and call University Housing your home.
To the rest of our guests and readers: please share your thoughts and recollections. UWM is a great community, and the wisdom of those who have experience around campus and around Milwaukee is always appreciated.
