Admitted students were invited to attend an event at UWM in advance of National Decision Day, which is traditionally May 1. The UWM event allowed admitted students to visit campus, pick up some UWM swag, tour campus and have a chance to win a $500 or $250 scholarship. The event was held at UWM’s Milwaukee, Waukesha and Washington County campuses.
Future UWM students checked out Panther Pride stations, took Decision Day photos, explored campus with an in-person tour and chatted with college representatives at outdoor booths. Families and admitted students also had the alternative the option to stay in their vehicle while picking up UWM swag.
