Brewers surprise UWM students with ‘pop-up’ tailgate

The Milwaukee Brewers surprised UWM students Wednesday with an impromptu tailgate party in Spaights Plaza. “We were just chilling in the Union and we saw all this commotion,” said junior Samantha Ostrowski, who was joined by her sister Nicole Ostrowski, a sophomore, in the crowd of students gathered in the plaza. “There’s a lot of people, and I got a free bobble head.”

Robert Smith, UWM’s associate vice chancellor for Global Inclusion & Engagement, helped write the Milwaukee Public Schools new “Black Lives Matter” resolution. Smith also mentors young black men at Wauwatosa West High School through a voluntary program that offers a safe, confidential place to talk about everything from becoming a man to sexuality to integration to academics.
