I love it here. Even going through this pandemic, UWM does a good job of keeping people involved. I really enjoy the voice program here. Everyone is so supportive of each other. It is not too competitive where they pin people up against each other. I really enjoy the supportive environment that only helps me improve myself.
This is my first year at UWM and during a pandemic. All my classes were online. It was difficult at times because it seemed to be a lot more work than an in-person class, but I appreciate the safety precautions. I like all my professors and most were openly available. I have not been on campus except for the library but it is a good size.
Some amazing teachers are trumped by the complete mess of an online system UWM has. 3 separate times they have deleted all of the classes I have taken that I wished to have gone back and just look at to brush up on my skills out side of school. D2l is laggy and consistently had dropped me from courses and had issues with clicking the back button which doesn't exist. I still pay my debt but can't have access to my previous courses makes 0 sense. I have requested multiple times to be able to download it, but atlas no effort has been made on their end- their attempt was to have me apply again for school in hopes it may allow me to access it.... Some really great professors again, but a horrible experience overall please pay the extra money to go to a school that actually tries to help you find a job and cares about you.
I enjoy all the facets of life on UWM's campus. The students are amongst the most diverse and friendly individuals I've gotten to know ovrr my time here. The facilities are stocked full of both learning materials and active students. I enjoyed all the many public events that take place on campus. There is never a full moment that takes place on campus.

Don't go to a college based on its name. Just because it may sound great on your resume in the future wont make a world of difference if you absolutely hate it there and eventually drop out.
Don't let others make your decision so they can display you as some sort of trophy to brag about. I cannot emphasize this enough but this is YOUR future, and although they may not be content with your decision for a bit, they will come around and be absolutely PROUD of you when you finish your career.
Pick a place where you'd think you'd be happy, whether that's a place that only offers a two year program, or whether it's situated out of state or even out of the country, don't be scared and go to a place that best suits the type of person you are.
One thing I'm disappointed in school is the class atmosphere. Many people kept to themselves, barely talked to others. When I did try to make conversations, many times people would only either just smiled, or gave short replies. This made me dread to go to classes since there were nothing much exciting to look forward to, other than the subject of the class.
Lots of help availble if you need it from students, professors and tutoring centers
The lack of mixture between my field and other fields. Being an architecture, I rarely socialize with people my age of other majors.
The University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee is a very active campus.
How we have a very big variety of classes and the size of the campuse, for how many students there are.
UW-Milwaukee is a very diverse school - urban lifestyle. I come from a small town so to go to UW-Milwaukee is an adventure and an experience all in one that I don't feel I could have received from some of the other schools I was looking at.

I wish I had known my way around the campus and the city before my first day of classes. It is not a large campus but when you don't have any prior knowledge it can be difficult to navigate.
Someone who thinks that they are going to be able to not go to class and still get throught. Although I would not say that this school is extremely demanding, it does require attendance for many of its classes.
University of Wisconsin Milwaukee is best known for having the nation’s number one freshwater College. This is very important as water is an essential that we all need.
My overall opinion of UWM is positive.
I think that the University of Wisconsin: Milwaukee's best asset is it's teachers. Although I am only a freshman, I have been very impressed with my professor's love for the subject they are teaching. I think that the University has so many resources for students to explore things they love. There selection of clubs is wide, and if you can't find one it is very easy start one of your own.
Milwaukee is considered to be a back up school by many. It usually doesn't even register on people's radar most of the time. Because of Milwaukee's diverse background, it's seen as a school full of people from a wide range of backgrounds. I have found that most people going to UWM are from the Midwest (Twin Cities, Illinois, Ohio, and Wisconsin).
To be blunt: I think it attracts a lot of hicks.
Basketball and all the other sports are rather big like swimming. The sports people whom I have met are a bit stuck up.
Um..we don't have a football team, (and henceforth a marching band). A ton of students think (rumor mill) that it's because UW-Madison, pays the university for not having one, which not only makes a lot of students mad, but also you can see that our "team spirit" or "school spirit" suffers for it as well. But if you and you're clique don't really hear about games, or are into sports, then it's really not a part of your life. It's kinda sad, but that's just the way it is.
My particular program has been challenging, but I'm taking 18 credit hours and working two jobs, so that might be just my situation. I have liked almost all my professors a lot. Many are very personally interested and don't mind answering questions through email.
I'm involved in the Deaf community groups because I'm an ASL major, and I've been to several Christian groups, too. I'm not really sure what other people do. There are things to get involved in if you want to.
