Exploring Majors through New Experiences, Events and Friends

Hello fellow Living Learning Community lovers! This past month, Career Quest has decked the halls, stuffed their faces with candy, hung snowflakes with care, dreaded midterms, and explored majors together. Residents have decorated for halloween, mourned the loss of some destroyed decorations and overcame as the turning of holidays neared by once again, decorating our home! (I may have a bit of a bias, but this place looks fantastic if you ask me.)

Throughout the month of October, residents have bonded with one another in ways that my co-Resident Assistant and I could not have imagined. They have created their own bowling league, attended a weekly pie day where residents gather and consume pies of all different varieties, and spent endless hours in our community lounge anticipating just how much more they have to endure prior to leaving for winter break. They challenge each other, they motivate each other, and they educate each other simply because they want to see each other succeed.

As an event, my co-Resident Assistant and I joined a few residents and stopped in at the Exploring Majors Fair hosted on campus. Those who attended spoke highly on the knowledge they gained through this experience. Residents felt comfortable and confident that they belong here at UWM, and are realizing that there is an opportunity out there for everyone to be a success in a career that best suites them.

Our community is finally a home for all, and we could not be more excited to share our home with everyone.
