Bonding over Friendly Competition, Spa Nights and Midterms!

Hello! It has been a great first month in the Health Professions LLC, and we have an amazing group of students. It has been a quick few weeks from move in, to residents finally starting to have their first exams. Our volleyball tournament kick off event was a huge success with over 40 residents attending. We even had our own LLC cheer squad! Everyone got a chance to go to Klotsche, meet the entire LLC Team, and have fun together.

The residents are very social and love being in the lounge. They are always having study sessions and working on Anatomy and Physiology or Chemistry. One Friday night the residents even stayed in to put on a spontaneous spa night and watch High School Musical. Also, we couldn't be true future health professionals without celebrating the premier of Grey's Anatomy together. 

In the Nursing LLC Class, students are all vying to get the most points in their Team Challenge Competition. The students get points for attending LLC events, meeting with their Peer Mentor, and for doing various things that are above and beyond. The winner gets a huge party thrown at the end of the semester, and they are all working hard to get it!

We are very excited about everything that has already happened in the LLC, but we are looking forward to an exciting month ahead. The Health Professions LLC will be hosting a presidential debate watch party, and we are inviting other LLCs to join us. We will be listening to the League of Women's Voters of Wisconsin talk about various issues, watching the debate, and having some great snacks. Make sure to add 'uwmilwaukee' on snapchat because we will be taking it over to showcase all of the LLCs at the debate event! We are aiming for all of the students to be registered to vote and to make an informed decision.

With just roughly a month down, we can't wait to continue the success of the LLC throughout the year.
