Transfer LLC Fall Highlights

The Transfer LLC has been hard at work since the beginning of the year adjusting to life in the Sandburg Residence Hall and UWM. 

We started September with a scavenger hunt program “Introduce Your Selfie” getting to know prominent spots on campus like the fountain or the panther statue (Shout out to Pounce!).  The Transfer LLC has also been working on introducing ourselves to all the different resources offered on campus.  We held an event that asked residents to explore the numerous offices on campus that provide the resources that help us thrive here at UWM.

The Transfer LLC has been active in registering to vote in the upcoming election and have participated in lively discussion and healthy debate. 

Floors 17/18 of the Transfer LLC were nominated for a Community Of The Month Award Recognition and won not only the Campus process, but also the regional process as well.  The nomination highlighted the communities sense of supportive spirit, value of friendship, and their pride for being a student.  The South Tower Community Council (STAR) even has representation from the Transfer LLC.

The Transfer LLC has focused on helping residents with their academics and identity as a UWM Panther and even as a South Cat.  Now that we feel introduced and comfortable as a member of the UWM community, we are branching out to explore Milwaukee.

The Transfer LLC will be attending an event centered around exploring Discovery World located in Downtown Milwaukee.  This event will help our transfer students a chance to get to know the city and the bus system (U-PASS) included in their tuition.  The Transfer LLC is focusing on how we can utilize our resources and succeed in the UWM community and the Milwaukee community.

I’m excited to be part of the Transfer LLC community and can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.
