After University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee
- Very Good949
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!

Milwaukee is a great city to grow, explore, and live. UWM is just minutes away from the natural wonders of Lake Michigan and the social experience of Bradford Beach. The city offers something for every personality type; nightlife, feastivals, and diverse restaurnts. The campus is compact and beautiful too! My favorite aspects are the gym and library. Choosing UW-Milwaukee again and again is an easy choice. With so many interesting majors, choosing just one is the hardest part. That is why I double majored!

You Have Your Choice of Drinking Streets – Freshmen will all begin with a dangerous amount of pregaming in the dorms, and if you're not smart about how you present yourself (both visually & audibly), you may end up with a violation thanks to Housing security (underage drinking doesn't get ticketed unless you resist, marijuana possession, however, typically results in police interaction.) After the pregame, house parties for underage students are pretty easy to find. Make friends in the first week, and you'll all walk in packs of 10-20 from Sandburg (or off the shuttle from Cambridge or RiverView) up to an address that one person in the group got invited to by a sophomore or junior that will be happy to sell keg beer for $5 a cup. You'll make friends and have fun. Parties get busted regularly but Underage Drinking tickets are seldom handed out. For of-age students, where you drink gets determined by the weather, how much money you have, or how lazy you are. There is a number of popular options for drinkers: our on-campus bar The Ghasthaus in basement of the union (no drink specials, but students are bartenders so you get some freebies), Black Rose or Axel's (4 blocks from campus, drink specials every night), North Ave (1 mile, drink specials), Brady St (1.75 miles, deals during week & few on weekends), 3rd St & Water St (downtown 3.25 miles, deals during week). Bars are packed on weekends usually 60/40 guys to girls, sometimes even more dramatic. North Ave and closer are almost exclusively populated with UWM students. Brady St has a little more intellectual and wealthier crowd. Downtown has everything from dive bars to dance clubs to college bars. If these aren't your scenes and prefer quieter bars, RiverWest has a number of fun (but unpopular) bars. Cathedral Square downtown has sophisticated establishments for the more adult crowd. Milwaukee St has stereotypical night clubs. Enjoy the Brew City!
