Winning School of the Year!

    It is my pleasure to announce that UW-Milwaukee won Large School Of The Year from the Wisconsin United Resident Hall Association (WURHA)! What does WURHA consist of you might ask? Well WURHA is an organization that some might say, is the meeting point where all information is collected and then promoted to reach different housing communities and all members on campuses located in Wisconsin. UWM attended the WURHA annual conference February 21st along with 17 other Wisconsin colleges at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI.

    UW-Milwaukee was in the running for Large School of the Year with numerous other Universities and this is the first time UWM won this particular award. UWM was chosen for this award with the display of the success and current growth of the residences halls, student organizations, and the campus as a whole. It was also taken into consideration that UWM is the first University in the UW System that has living learning communities available to residents. Commonly referred to as LLC's, LLC's are communities in residence halls that allow students to learn, study, and explore their major or interest with other residents with that same particular major or interest. With the combination of everything that UWM has to offer they won Large School of the Year and we couldn't be more proud!

Way to go panthers!
