The Aggregate: The UWM Honors College Newsletter

The mission of The Aggregate reflects what is unique about the Honors College: stories featuring the people of the Honors College and the many activities taking place within the College.

As contributors to The Aggregate, we work toward achieving balance in our voices. Members each bring their own style to the pieces they write, but we all exist as part of a whole.

The Aggregate contains recurring sections, including “Starting Out” and “Moving Forward,” featuring current and past Honors students, “Foreign Correspondence,” a dispatch from an Honors student abroad, “Familiar Faces,” short interviews with the members of the Honors College faculty and staff, and content that will vary from issue to issue.

We hope that our words and pictures engage people throughout the incredible community of the Honors College.

Alternative Spring Break Travels to New Orleans

New Orleans is a city of passion, history,
culture, love, and art of all kinds, but it is also a city with staggering need.
In March 2018, fifteen students and two faculty members left for the first ever Honors College Alternative Spring Break, bringing aid to New Orleans thirteen years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city. Honors College faculty member Benjamin Schneider organized the trip with volunteerism as its primary focus, but also as an attempt to show interested Honors students the varying cultures that can be found within their own country.
