The best thing about UW-Milwaukee is the diversity. Being a minority, I felt that it was important for me to find a college that I would feel comfortable in. At UW-Milwaukee, you feel accepted and there are so many resources to help you along the way. It's exciting and an eye opener seeing different people from different states, even countries! I feel that I can relate to a lot of people on several different levels; rather it be culture, food, music, fashion and style, make up- anything really!


My favorite thing about UWM is its location. It is located near Lake Michigan in Wisconsin's biggest city. There is alot of things to do on campus and in the city because Milwaukee is not only a college town.


I would say the diversity is the best thing about the campus learning and meeting new people and growing to love new cultures and traditions.


The amout of activites and clubs to get involved in


It is a large university but located in a compact space for the most part. The school has been expanding in recent years which means housing and classrooms have moved off the main campus.


The best thing about UWM is the campus. The campus is beautiful, and is in a great location.


I think the best thing about this school is the research opporunities. They are not advertised for that well but if you seek them out yourself there are quite a few opporutnities available, and research with a professor is a great way to get good recommendation letters!


I would definitely have to say the best thing about my school is the friendly atmosphere. Often times, people are so subject to staying within the box, not being themselves. But at my school, there's no way to do that. You have all types of colors, races, and backgrounds. In life you have to adjust. You have to play the hand you're dealt, and because of my diversity I can now go beyond the barriers that society has unfortunately tried to place before me. That's the best thing about my school.
