UWM is a terrific school for returning students. I spent most of my adult life in the military before going back to college at 35 and never once really felt out of place. This was due mainly to the fact that only in very rare cases was I the oldest student in a given class. All of my instructors where easy to talk with and very considerate of my situation as an older student and war veteran. There were a few times where I felt overwhelmed by some of the courses I took since I was the "old dog learning new tricks", especially in some of the more advanced technical classes I had to take as part of my major. After sitting down with the instructor of a particularly difficult database course I was able to get back on track. I also remember struggling with a math heavy class I had to take as part of my business minor and stressing out that I wasn't going to pass. I finally decided to meet with the instructor to tell her that I knew I wasn't doing well and that I might have to drop the course to keep my GPA from falling. She really listened to my concerns, set me up with some extra tutoring and told me not to worry. I ended up passing that class with no problems. The only real problem I had was that as I neared graduation I wasn't receiving the sort of career guidance I would've liked and in the end found work on my own without any help from the school. Though it may have more to do with the stalled economy of the state than anything to do with the school; they can't help you find a job that isn't there. If you live in the metro Milwaukee area and want to send your kids to an inexpensive, top rated university in a clean safe area of the city OR if you're an older student looking to advance our career UWM is the school for you.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

UWM is a great place to learn and live. Professors were great, and classes and people were fun. The advisers could have been a little more informative.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Milwaukee was a great choice because the professor's are really invested in seeing you succeed and push you to explore new thoughts and ideas. I really value the professors who encouraged me to dig deeper in my research.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

It was fine I suppose. Cheaper than other colleges. I know it's respected in the community. Just don't get a stupid major where you won't be able to find a job easily when you're done. Ask people in the field where they see the job outlook going, ask about pay. When I did my research prior to enrolling, i found out when i started to apply to jobs that the salary is VERY different from what online says.

I loved being a student but found the academic advisors to be awful and unhelpful.

It was a wonderful school that helped me be as prepared as I could be for the world of teaching. I enjoyed every minute of school. My professors were wonderful and very helpful.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014

Overall, UW-Milwaukee is an expensive, but good school. I loved the campus and culture, but was often left disappointed by my marketing teachers - I learned more through internships than I ever did in class.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

Good school to go to. Expensive but good. Parking is a nightmare so be prepared to either pay or use the bus.
