My name is Alyssa Biersack and I am the mentor for the Community Leadership LLC and also the Wisconsin Covenant LLC. I am a senior majoring in Communication and seeking a certificate in Community Leadership. I am originally from Grand Marsh, WI which is an unincorporated town and went to high school at Adams-Friendship High School.
I chose UWM for a few reasons:
1) I have a lot of family in the area.
2) I LOVE Milwaukee.
3) I absolutely love how diverse and accepting of others our campus is,
4) UWM has about 29,000 students but campus is only about 4 large city blocks which takes only 10 minutes maximum to get between the two farthest ends of campus, and still doesn't feel crowded.
Cheers to the beginning of a sure to be fantastic year!
