Bonjour! C'est Juliana!

Hello everyone, my name is Juliana French, I am a sophomore at UWM, and have been an Outreach Assistant in University Housings since February. Working as an Outreach Assistant is super exciting, I love promoting events going on at UWM and giving housing tours to incoming students. 

On a personal note, I don't have the typical college story as every other UWM Panther. For starters, I'm not even a native of Wisconsin. My hometown is about 6 hours away from Milwaukee, in rural Southern Illinois. Its population is less than 6,000 people, and its area is approximately a 5 mile drive from one "Welcome to" sign to the other. Fun fact, my graduating class was only 88 people and I knew every individuals name. 

Volunteering at International Folk Fair
I chose UWM for one main reason; the Global Studies program. Currently, I am on the management track in that major, with French as my language component. (Tout le monde devriez venir à UWM!) I plan on studying abroad soon, and other than this summer I’d like to do a volunteer project abroad every summer until I graduate. After I graduate, I plan to go to graduate school, and then hopefully become a Public Relations specialist for a global company. My dream job would be to work as Press Secretary for the White House. 

Some of my favorite things at UWM are Lyrical Sanctuary, Pantherfest, and the Grind. As for the city of Milwaukee I’ve gotten to experience and enjoy Summerfest, the South Side (Me encanta el Supermercado el Rey!), B&B's (Build-a-Breakfast/Build-a-Burger), Café Hollander, Ians’s, the Basilica of St. Josaphat, the Islamic Society of Milwaukee, Bayshore Town Center, Rochambo, Colectivo Coffee, and of course, all of the awesome beaches! 

Overall, I am delighted to be an Outreach Assistant and a representative of UWM! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at

P.S. I hardly ever take photos, so most of these are from over a year ago!
