In Their Own Words

Mackenzie Sima, LLC Student:
“It is very important that you that this seriously. This is your education, your life and what you want to do. That being said, this LLC course helped me to discover my major and what I love doing.”

Jamesetta Davis, LLC Student:
“This LLC course has not only helped me learn about different careers and possible career paths I can take, it has also helped me learn about myself, my values, my interests, and what I truly want to accomplish in pursuing my bachelor’s degree at UWM.”

Ian Clavel, LLC Student:
“I enjoy my LLC because we do fun activities. My favorite part about it is the college scorecard. It allowed me to explore ideas for exploration in new careers! I also like both the teacher and mentor. I believe my parents showed me the LLC’s which is how I signed up.”

Lauren Lessac, LLC Instructor:
“I truly enjoy watching my students gain a deeper understanding of who they are and learn how their unique self fits into the world of work. Through activities we do in and outside of the class they develop a stronger self-concept and an awareness of their role in gaining skills and experiences while in college, that will make them marketable to employers in the future.”
