In Their Own Words

Ashley Matter, LLC Member – First-Year Program
“Living in the Honors House LLC my freshman year allowed me to transition to college life seamlessly. From day one, I was able to meet engaged students who encouraged each other to strive for academic success, while living in a community that ended up feeling more like a family by the end of the year. I would highly recommend this first year experience to any student in the Honors College looking to enhance their experience here at UW-Milwaukee.”honors2

Alyssa Zasada, LLC Member – Honors House 2
“I joined the Honors 2 LLC because I wanted the same feeling of community I had experienced three years ago in the Honors LLC. By living among others with similar academic mindsets and goals, everyone is more open to meeting their neighbors and forming new friendships. There is a great sense of respect for each other and the living environment, which makes the floor feel more like a home and less like separate rooms and suites.”

Alan Singer, Honors College Senior LecturerHonors12015
“Each year I am able to quickly spot the LLC students in my Honors classes. They form friendships and discuss the course material before coming to class. Their collaboration greatly enhances our seminars. I am continually impressed by how the students create such a vibrant social and intellectual community for themselves. I always look forward to taking part in programs with the Honors LLC students. Recently, we visited a special exhibit on pirates at the Milwaukee Public Museum and on another occasion, we screened a music documentary. These events are always fun and they are a great way for students and faculty to connect and share ideas outside of class. The LLC provides a wonderful environment for students to get the most of their Honors experience!”
