I have been serving the students and families of the Greater Milwaukee area for the past several years, and I am delighted to inform you about the programs and opportunities that are available at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. UWM offers students with a supportive environment where they have the opportunity to grow academically and personally. UWM is located on Milwaukee’s Upper Eastside. This is a beautiful and bustling part of the city where students can walk to restaurants, shops, the lakefront, theaters, farmers markets, parks, and more.

UWM offers many opportunities for students to learn, explore, and grow. As the second largest college in Wisconsin, UWM provides unique opportunities for students. Our students can choose from over 180 degree programs, and 300 student organizations to join. UWM is Wisconsin’s most diverse campus, and in order to support our students we have an Inclusive Excellence Center, an LGBT Resource Center, Women’s Resource Center, and more. Being located in the heart of Milwaukee, UWM students gain internships at over 600 organizations in the area. UWM is a fantastic school that offers students versatility, opportunity, and value; and I hope to help you discover if UWM is the right school for you.

I am proud to serve the students of Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha. My goal is to help each student find the college that is the best fit for their future. If you are interested in any of our programs, visiting campus, or have questions about the application process; please don’t hesitate to call me directly at 414-229-4082 or e-mail me at alsoika@uwm.edu. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
