Transfer Community - Out and About

I have quite a few updates from the South Tower Transfer Community! First of all, we just wrapped up our event called "The Hunt". Throughout the month of October, RA Katie and I posted pictures of locations around the UWM campus and encouraged residents to go take selfies with that location in the background. Residents got points for turning in photos of the correct location and earned bonus points for taking pictures with other residents from the community!

Another event the Transfer community just had was "Explore MKE". I took residents on an in-depth exploration of downtown Milwaukee. Katie and I wanted to get residents off campus and let them experience all the great sights and wonders that we have in Milwaukee. We got to see the Gold Fonz Statue along the River Walk, check out the Milwaukee Public Market, and navigate around the Historic Third Ward. All of us that went really enjoyed ourselves. It was a perfect way to start of this Fall season.

This month we'll also be taking a group of Transfer Community residents to an Admirals Hockey game at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Katie and I are both extremely excited for the event! Some more events the residents took part in the past few weeks was the LGBT Film Festival and the on-campus Glow Zumba event hosted by UWM's GroupX program.

Stay tuned for our next post to see how the Admirals game goes!
