Overall my experience is great! I am learning things everyday, making friends and experiencing college life. Plus, the food in the dorm towers is awesome! Not necessarily a good thing for the freshman 15! The only issue that I have is getting in and out of the dorm buildings. The elevators don't go to all of the floors and I have to take the stairs to the floor above or below in order o get on the elevator. There is no button on the elevators on my floor. Who designed this?!

I chose UW-Milwaukee because I wanted to stay in the city I grew up in. UWM is so diverse and I really love that about this school. I'm currently studying to be a nurse and the professors and different resources that UWM has to offer has helped immensely.
