Busy Preparing for Final Exams & Exploring Milwaukee
As we finish up the month of
November we find our Transfer students gearing up for the end of the semester.
Final exams are almost upon us which means plenty of late nights in the Golda
Meir Library putting those final touches on thesis papers and cramming for
final exams.Amongst all the end of the
semester chaos, the month of November held an opportunity for our Transfer LLC
students to get out and explore by visiting one of the local Milwaukee museums,
Mid November a group of our Transfer LLC students ventured
to Discovery World, an interactive museum found on Milwaukee’s lakefront. There
we were able to visit the Science and Technology wing and the Reiman Aquarium. It
was obvious that the most popular exhibit was the touch tank where we were all
able to pet stingrays and sharks among other fish (pictured below). We
concluded our tour at Discovery World and after little debate we opted to go
explore the Historic Third Ward. The Third Ward is full of small shops,
restaurants and the well-known Milwaukee Riverwalk. After exploring for some
time we grabbed lunch at the Milwaukee Public Market and concluded our day by
catching a bus back to campus.
This month most of our focus will be on preparing for finals
and finishing the semester strong. We are also planning a tailgating event to
get hyped up before the UWM Men’s Basketball takes on Western Illinois.
Best of luck to our Transfer LLC students on their final
