Hey everyone! My name is Eric Sundquist and I am glad to be one of the new University Housing Outreach Assistants here at UWM! We’ve been working hard to organize the absolute best tours of our residence halls here and as the first few tours start I can tell it’s going to be a lot of fun meeting all of you and introducing you to our awesome facilities.
A little background about myself; I am a 21-year-old Accounting and Finance double major transfer student from Burnsville, MN (SKOL VIKES!) and the 2012-2013 school year was my first at UWM. I lived in Cambridge Commons last year and had a blast. I got involved with the South End Council, which governed Cambridge and RiverView, and got some really cool things accomplished through that like getting foosball tables in the residence halls and throwing a huge end of the year/pre-final carnival and grill out for residents to take a step back and relax before attacking their finals and also to have some more enjoyable time with all of the friends they made throughout the year.
I am also a part of the Sigma Chi Rho Fraternity on campus. Keep an eye out for our car smash during Fall Welcome to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation and the UWM Scholarship Program!
This will be my first summer in Milwaukee and I could not be more excited! I’ll finally get to experience Summerfest as I’m sure many of you will. I also plan to spend a lot of time exploring the numerous festivals that will be occurring throughout the summer, specifically German Fest and the Fireworks Kite Festival, as well as touring the disc golf courses around the area.
I hope you all have an exciting and safe summer and I’ll be checking back in soon!
