Margaret Elborough - 5/25/2018
Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2015
"Lubar's School of Business was a high quality program with many dedicated faulty members. I highly recommend the school to anyone who wants an affordable education with many outside the classroom opportunities. Milwaukee is a great city and it is very easy to get around the compact campus. The summer months offer the most cultural activities including Summerfest, one of the biggest music festivals in the world. Their Honors College is also top notch and pushes you to work and think outside of your comfort zone."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019
"I would not recommend the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Nursing program to anyone. Clinical skills are taught (mostly by watching videos), practiced, and tested in the nursing lab resource center on the student's OWN TIME. Student's are given very little time to practice, ON THEIR OWN TIME, then expected to pass a check off of that skill. The teaching assistants (TA's) that "instruct" in the nursing lab are rude, crabby, play favorites, and are inconsistent with each other and are inconsistent with the student's learning materials. With tuition being as expensive as it is at this University, students deserve better."

"I enjoyed but also disliked certain aspects of life at UWM. The campus is in a populated and busy city which can lead to difficulty with parking and living expenses off campus being a little high. However the campus provides many transportation services and recently even placed bicycles around the city that can be used by students which can make this easier to deal with for parking. The cost of the university is understandable however the price for parking and parking passes for campus are rather outrageous when you consider tuition and I believe this should be considered into tuition by the university to allow students free parking in structures on campus. I also dislike the fact that taking an online course costs more seeing as it should be less work for the teacher not to lecture in person to students, this is just my opinion on the matter. Many things such as the university email and site for homework are great advantages to the university to keep organized. There are also many resources available for all different students on campus, the Norris health center aids in STDs, mental health, or just the flu. There are also many resources for LGBTQ students, and students of every nationality/ethnicity. The culture on campus is also a bonus, it is not strictly one minded, or one culture- the campus is extremely diverse and welcoming and this is one of the best benefits of the campus. I overall enjoyed my experiences on campus, even with some slight things I wish had been different! Great campus, Great educators, Great resources, and Great experience!"

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2016
"The UW-Milwaukee is a great school not only for its location and facilities, but also its academics. I knew I wanted to pursue my Doctorate in Physical Therapy after getting my undergraduate degree. UWM does not have a pre-physical therapy path, however, many people interested in physical therapy choose to major in Kinesiology as it prepares you for many of the classes that are needed in order to even apply to any Physical Therapy program after graduation. Now in PT school, I can happily say that the classes I took at UWM, my major, and my professors really helped prepare me for what I needed to learn in the future and now. Coming into my doctorate program I felt as though I had a strong foundation to build upon. Anyone interested in Physical Therapy after obtaining their undergraduate degree would be more than satisfied with what UWM has to offer."

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013
"I am Panther proud! I loved every minute I experienced at UW-Milwaukee. I always had a passion to search the youth of Milwaukee and the Urban Education program provided me with the skills to do so. I encourage many of my students to consider UW-Milwaukee due to the quality of education they would gain, the inclusive and diverse community, and the price point of tuition is a sound financial investment."

Kelly - 6/21/2017
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2010
"If you are working toward a bachelors in Art Education I would suggest looking into other schools. During my time there, my professors were (what seemed like randomly picked out of hat) not open minded, rude, and played the Favorite game with students. If you were not there favorite or questioned what was being taught, which I did, they rudely told me to go to a different school and did not even listen to what I had to say. What school supports the watching of "The Lion King" and "Precious" as educational for art education?? and very little real life scenarios like classroom management????-UWM allowed this garbage and I learned very little about daily tasks of teaching art. I would never go back."

Nathaniel - 3/30/2017
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2009
"The Educational Policy program at UW-Milwaukee is a small program that mainly serves graduate students, although they do provide an undergraduate degree, as well. This program emphasizes issues in modern urban education and challenges students to present real solutions, particularly in the city of Milwaukee. This program is largely tailored to students who want to stay in and improve Milwaukee, so may not be the best choice for someone looking to leave immediately after attaining a degree."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014
"University of Wisconsin Milwaukee is a cultured university that makes everyone feel welcome. The campus is compact, which makes it easy to get from class to class in a short amount of time. The nursing program is rigorous and competitive, but also rewarding. There are many hospitals in the area to network with, making it easy for most students to have a job lined up before they even graduate."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"UW-Milwaukee was a great program. There were a few speed bumps with the updated courses but overall very well. They took into consideration our input and I personally believed prepared us for a career outside of school. Teachers and clinical sites were exceptional."

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2012
"I fairly enjoyed my time at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The program and faculty are excellent. If you don't mind snowy cold weather, UWM is the place to go to save some tuition while receiving high standard education. My only problem with the school was that the students the school accepts every year is not very competitive. I didn't meet many inspiring souls and all my friends are faculty members."
