Finally at UWM :)

 Off to college

Hello everyone! I moved into Cambridge Commons on Saturday at 9:30am so I left home at 7am.  My boyfriend and my two younger sisters came along.  I was nervous and excited at the same time.  So, we're finally in Milwaukee and I'm trying to spot the residence hall but it was actually easy because I've seen the pictures before and there were colorful flags on the rooftop :D Thank you staffs!

This is a view of the courtyard

So unloading for me was less than an hour. I'm glad I didn't bring too much.  Remember: Don't bring octopus lamps, microwaves, and mini-fridges...into Cambridge at least. It varies in different residence halls, I believe.  And when you're there, they give you two carts :)  As you enter the hallway, the walls are decorated with activities, maps, warnings, etc so its very welcoming !

Outside of my suite and going to enter for the first time!
And finally unpacking :D

-After I unloaded my boxes, me and my family went to explore Milwaukee.  It was a great day but after they left, it's heartbreaking. You're officially alone but don't think about it too much because there are other students that are going through the same thing that you are :)  Honestly, when it came down to "unpacking" I didn't know where to start....but I started on my clothes and next thing you know, you are finished! Lay in bed...and sleep.  I hope you (freshmen like myself) had a good experience as well and a great year :)

  1. i remember that day when i first moved into the parkside residence, and i was like, I don't know anybody except for Yang. So like, officially, alone but at the same time, i was glad that i'm out on my own and deciding what is coming next? So i hope you're happy and complete what you are starting.
