3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They're helpful for when you don't understand something. Help you get on track

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities after college, but you can only get it once you graduate. There are not many during, people cannot get the experience they need.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are people that will walk me back to my dorm

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms and hallways are cramped

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know anything about them

Overall Experience: Everyone is so friendly and inviting

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My experience this year was extremely pleasant. I was in the Honors LLC at the top two floors of the west tower of Sandburg. We had a pretty tight-knit community after the few couple of days. People were quick to socialize and gather in our common area whenever they had some down time. Many of the people I was close with tended to plan all kinds of outings throughout the year. We even came up with a frisbee game called "Fury Disc" which we held tournaments for on Saturdays. I don't recall many conflicts in our LLC, but I'm confident that if something came up, our RA, Hunter V., was able to help resolve the issue.

Overall Experience: In my first year of college I've managed to make several new friends, start a student organization, contract with the United States Air Force, and regularly shadow a physician at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. I've determined what it is I'd like to do after college: serve in the Air Force as an Emergency Medical Specialist. Juggling school work with all my other activities and social life required a bit of adaptation through time management, but ultimately I feel that I've grown as an individual and am more capable to perform in my academics and other activities. If that can all be accomplished in just one year, I'm looking forward to seeing what I'll gain from my experiences over the next three!

Overall Experience: Courses on this campus is great their are so many options you can choose from, like yoga for an art credit or film for humanities, so many different things and unique options fit for everyone.Classroom sizes vary from large to small, but it will tell you and even if the class is big the professor still likes to get to know their students and talk with them.

Overall Experience: Well the peck school of the art has a 92% job rate after you graduate. They offer different internships and other opportunities for different majors, and we have a huge alumnae network who love to be involved in our school.Their are ton of jobs around campus and easy to get one, and the career develpoment and resource center can help you as well. Uwm is one of the top research universities in Wisconsin and they offer different research opportunity their. That why joining different orgs and getting involved is important because you make connections and gain the skills you need to succeed.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Uwm does have its issues as any other school or neighborhood with theft, sexual assault etc, but they take certain step to make the campus as safe as they can and provide great services that help people who have been affected. The police station and the Norris health center works together to educate and protect the students. I have never felt unsafe nor have I ever had any issues on this campus and I am happy I got to a school that cares.

Campus Housing: I really enjoy living in in Sandburg one because it the cheapest resident hall and its right on campus, living in the resident halls is great if you want to make friends theirs always someone around to talk to and you have a lot of food options. You have two options for laundry one area is in north tower and the other is in east tower and cost is affordable, they have machines you can add money onto. The cost of living there is ok I'm struggle a bit paying for it especially east tower, but financial aid if you get some can help cover it. The housing process is easy and quick and after the first year you can pick where you wanna live faster and easier. Overall its a great place to stay and have great services.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I am a part of the Greek life so I know how it is, at uwm our Greek Life isn't huge its pretty small but we do try, Mine in particular tries to educate the community on social justice topics, and also give back to our community. Also of Greeks do volunteer work and help you build your leadership skills, its a great way to get involved and make new friends. I suggest getting to know all the different ones out their and find one that works best for you, by going to the org fair or the fraternity and sorority showcases they have. We include everyone and just because your not Greek doesn't mean we don't want to talk to you, come hang out and be friends we include everyone don't be shy. Also this campus does not let Greeks have houses it was banned a long time ago, we currently have 1-2 houses that are still there but they had it before the law.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We are Division one which is really nice, most people when they go to a school look for a football team in which uwm does not have. But people do attend basketball and soccer and they do a great job getting times and dates out there and giving stuff for free. I wish uwm school spirit was a bigger deal, but if student work together that can happen. The teams do great and work hard and are acknowledged here, and there are people that go to every game and support our players.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I came to UWM undecided and not sure what I wanted to do, uwm has helped me grow as a person and really helped pave the way for me. Thanks to the wonderful advisors they helped me stay on track and helped me find things that worked for me. I had an amazing experience over the summer being an orientation leader, helping welcome new incoming freshmen learn about our school and why it is so awesome. Every year I attend Panther fest and every event during welcome week, its my favorite part you meet tons of new people and get tons of free stuff and really get a feel for uwm. I founded a sorority here at uwm in 2014 and became the vice president for that. UWM is a very diverse school and is welcoming to all, you will never feel left out. Over all I have had the best experience here at my school and I would do it all over again if I had to.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In a city so easy to find jobs. Close to Chicago so should be easy to find internships in my field.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life does not rule the campus but it is present.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I dont think they're that important.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am a transfer student so I may not have the same experience as other students but I am very impressed with the school. It is very diverse with a great film program. The city of Milwaukee is great; the school is right in the heart of the city.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe and secure on campus, even when walking to my car at midnight. The services available on campus are excellent and range from security walking you to your car, or even giving a ride to where you are living via B.O.S.S. Safety is constantly promoted on campus.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The student career prospects and value of a degree from UW-Milwaukee is probably the best. From what I've seen and heard, employers value and seek out those who have earned a degree from UW-Milwaukee because they know the rigor of the courses and how much the students are prepared for post-graduate employment.

3 College Senior

Athletics: To be honest, I am not sure about the athletics at UW-Milwaukee. I know quite a few students participate intramural and club sports, but I rarely hear about varsity sports teams.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee! The student body is diverse and there is an array of majors/minors/certificates to choose from. It's a great place to attend if you wish to live on campus or choose to commute. In my experience, the professors and teaching assistants care about your success.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am entering my freshman year for college. What makes a school unique is the diversity, and activities that joins the community together.
