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, Discovery World.


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 exams!


Yours truly,

 RA Zoe Schulz
