After taking them to Riverwest, I continued on to show them a few highlights of the area, including Fuel Cafe, Walmart, Culver's, and Mike Crivello's Camera Center. We walked to each location ending at the Union where students shuttled back to Riverview.
The ultimate goal of this event, which I believe was met, was to introduce residents to the area they have access to and familiarize them to Milwaukee. I wanted to show that it isn't really that difficult to navigate the city and most everything you would need is a feasible walk away. Furthermore, I wanted to encourage group travel to locations outside of the Residence Halls not only for safety but also for community bonding as well. We all learned a bit about each other that we never knew before simply by taking a walk together.
