Two Houses... One Community... The Transfer LLC
Since our last blog update, the Transfer LLC has continued to explore Milwaukee and adjust to life at UWM. As the end of the semester continues to approach, the work load for students has multiplied, and school has become more time consuming for them. This however does not prevent the residents from socializing and enjoying the different areas of campus and Milwaukee. The great weather that we have been having has also allowed residents to be out and about much more than typically allowed for November.
One of the major events that have occurred for the Transfer LLC is a group outing to the BMO Harris Center. Residents were presented with the opportunity to travel to downtown Milwaukee to see the Milwaukee Admirals play against the Rockford IceHogs in a game of ice hockey. Wisconsin has a large hockey culture, so this event was exciting for both hockey fans and people who have never been exposed to it before. Residents reported enjoying this activity greatly and some have even expressed interest in attending another game. This event required residents to take public transportation down to the BMO Harris Center, something that many residents have never done before. Not only were residents exposed to a new atmosphere during this event, but they were able to become more independent when exploring downtown Milwaukee.
As the semester comes to a close, residents are preparing for finals and winter break. Between now and then, there are plenty of campus and Sandburg events to keep them entertained. In the upcoming weeks, there will be both house events and tower wide events for residents to participate in. One thing to keep an eye out for in the next couple of weeks is the Campus Food Drive. This is a great way to give back to the community, and bring about some friendly competition by among the different floors of South Tower.
