Hello everyone! The Panther Military, Veteran and ROTC Living Learning Community is going strong! Most of our members have been hard at work with their studies. Midterms are over but the work still keeps going.
Everyone here in Purin in the LLC has grown very close over the last two months. It has been amazing to watch everyone build friendships and connections with each other that started with the common connection from the LLC. They all are doing homework together, going out into the city, attending common classes, and just overall doing social activities together.
The last event that was offered was in partnership with all of the other LLC’s in Housing! A debate watch party was organized with snacks and discussions with a political group here on campus! Unfortunately, our members were all busy at the time of the event but it was still an amazing event that connected the LLC programs throughout Housing!
In the upcoming weeks, I am working on organizing a few Hours were Sarah Terry, one of the LLC Stakeholders and part of the Military and Veteran Resource Center, will come to Purin and answer any questions that our LLC members have.
Also, coming up is Veterans Week which is a week of events specifically tailored to the Military and Veteran population on UWM’s campus. We will be making some part of that week an official event for the LLC. Also part of that week is the Military Ball which is offered to all of our students.
Keep an eye out for more of our activities! More will be coming soon! Talk to you soon!
