Update for the Architecture LLC

Hey Everyone!

This month, the Architecture LLC finished up their final projects. They had to come up with a design to better the park outside of the Sandburg dorms. In addition to coming up with the design they had to create a site model, model of their design, multiple drawings, a collage, and prepare a presentation. They then presented their work to a group of faculty to receive feedback. Their presentations not only allowed them to get direct feedback on their work, but it also gave them the opportunity to practice their presentation skills for next semester's studio critiques. Overall everyone did amazing work and I was very impressed!

It's crazy to believe that this semester is already coming to an end. It feels like just yesterday that Katie and I were having our first community meetings and our LLC welcome event. These past few weeks have been an exciting time in the Transfer Community though. At our end of the year banquet, Katie and I were honored to represent the Transfer Community as recipients of the LLC of the year Award! Last week we had two phenomenal events as well. We partnered with the Business LLC to throw an amazing cookout. We took full advantage of the nice weather (while it lasted) to play volleyball, frisbee, soccer, and enjoy some amazing grilled food courtesy of RA Jake. Then, last Friday we enjoyed the free admissions day at the Milwaukee Art Museum. 

All in all, it's been an amazing year working with the Transfer Community. I couldn't have asked for a better group of students to work with and I know that Katie shares the same sentiments. We both with you best of luck with your final exams! Have a great summer - RA Paul

Wow, this year has gone by so fast! 

Amidst our residents starting to move home, organizing final projects, and studying for finals we still took some time to go have some fun on the LLC trip to Chicago!

The Health Professions LLC started the day with a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. We went all around the museum, checking out different exhibits, especially the health related one where you could learn all about genetics, the different body systems, and much much more. 

After the museum, we all traveled to Chicago's Navy Pier to explore but the students were allowed to just explore the city on there own. Residents walked to the Bean, stayed on the pier, went shopping, and some got Chicago deep dish pizza. 

We ended the day, all pretty exhausted, but really happy to have gotten a fun day to spend together before Finals and the end of the year!

Hope to see you all here next year! Have a great summer!
