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 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?!

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!
