Fall Welcome and New Classes!

Happy Friday!

As fall welcome comes to an end, I know I have personally had a blast going to various fall welcome events!! Don't forget there are still a ton of ways to keep getting involved in and around UWM. UWM has absolutely amazing centers and offices that can help you academically and socially!  Some of my favorite offices around campus include The Center for Student Involvement which offers a whole list of available student organizations you can become apart of. Another great office is The Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership and Research, which includes volunteering opportunities around the UWM campus. The Office of Undergraduate Research can help you find various research opportunities around campus and The Recreation Center can match you up with different sports clubs! These offices are great starts to kicking off your school year and hopefully keeping you very busy during all of your down time! As classes continue, remember all of the resources available to you to help you academically excel. PASS tutoring, The Writing Center, Mentors, professor office hours, and of course your RA! All of these people can help make your year at UWM the most successful it can be. As always if you have any questions about anything please feel free to ask below!! I know it's only three weeks into the semester but don't forget to get involved!!

Sunday Funday!

The Residence Halls are looking exuberant after a fun, busy move-in this week! It was awesome to see all the smiles, sweat, and tears that come along with moving away to college and I had a lot of fun helping out at Sandburg and Cambridge!

Now that the work is done, it's time to have some fun! We have a couple events left yet this evening. The next event up is the RecFest in Klotsche starting at 7:00pm. Come check out all of the recreational opportunities UW-Milwaukee has to offer! This was one of my favorite Fall Welcome events last year and if you're lucky you might bump into me and get your picture taken!

After that we have another awesome event at Target! We're taking over the whole store, playing loud music, and shopping for anything you may have forgotten at home. I'll be there as well taking pictures, doing a little last minute shopping myself, and quite possibly showing you how not to dance!

And of course don't forget about the Brewer's game tomorrow morning or the Milwaukee Art Museum trip! 

See you all there!!
