Greetings! My name is Will Reichardt and if you are from Ozaukee, Washington, Manitowoc, Calumet, Sheboygan, Brown, Kewaunee or Door Counties, I am your Admissions Advisor! I also work with students from select schools in Milwaukee County.

I was not looking for just a place to go to school when I began my college search. I was looking for a community where I could engage in real and lasting relationships that would be life giving and help me grow. I was also looking for a campus community that was big enough to attract high caliber professors and staff while simultaneously providing real world opportunities beyond the walls of the school. While there are many colleges across the US that fit these parameters, it was not until I visited UWM that something clicked!

UWM’s close knit community crossed with cutting edge opportunities, delivers a hybrid experience that has shaped the way I interact with my community. As a student, my close knit community was experienced through service trips to Asheville, NC and the Gulf Shores, a campus job in the Center for Community Based Learning, Leadership and Research, intramural sports, Orientation Leaders and a Living Learning Community. Some of my best friends even today, I met through these experiences. UWM also offered me a chance to meet top names in my field as well as community leaders from around the city, state and nation. This type of networking and investment from professors and staff gave me a huge leg up in the job market.

As your admissions Counselor, it is my goal to play a small role in finding the right fit that “clicks” for you. I pledge to be open, honest and transparent with you and provide the necessary information you need to make the best decision possible!
