    I went on-campus back in 2008-09. It was okay at first, but they treat you like a child. You cannot use the bathroom during some classes and have to ask permission to in others. Plus, they count absences and if you are late to classes on their huge/large campus it can count as an absence too. If you miss 6 classes, at least back then, you failed the class and had to repeat it at your cost. I made good friends for a while with two of my teachers that lasted past my going here. They were helpful and influenced me a lot. I guess, there wasn't the "warm" feeling I wanted and the help that I personally needed. Especially at the Peck School of the Art. I once had a piece in the Milwaukee Art Museum as a high schooler and their art professors acted like I couldn't even draw correctly. It was a horrible experience. The biggest problem was professors trying to talk me out of my dreams. And, one Black Economics teacher was teaching us that there is no God and our parents made us, not some God. I don't understand how that fit into Black Economics, or why he also stated that communism is better than socialism and capitalism, too, several times. This is America, we are free to think what we want religiously, and we are a capitalistic society, they shouldn't be brainwashing the youth like that. I was older and learned to think critically of other's views by then, but someone straight out of high school and their parent's home would of easily fell for the stuff pushed there. Like, "Go for the career that makes money and forget your passions". That was preached by a lot of teachers and parents there!

    I have a lot of Milwaukee Pride and love going to school in my home but I have had many problems with the Advising staff. My current Advisor in the Education Department is wonderful and extremely helpful but the Advisor I had prior to her was horrid. She knew nothing and every time I asked a question she would hand me literature to read myself. Zero help and ended up in the wrong major because of it. Otherwise the school is great and I really do enjoy it. I just run into staff that are bad at their jobs sometimes. My advise is just make sure your advisors know what they are talking about so you don’t waste time and money.

    My experience with UW-Milwaukee's Study abroad program was absolutely terrible. I was discriminated for my age, sex, and gender, and because of those factors, was told I was not a good fit.

    I have no experience with living on campus, so I can't speak to that. However, I found the staff to be very helpful and the instructors knowledgeable and understanding. It was easy enough for me to figure out my own schedule thanks to their online resources, but I never had trouble getting ahold of my advisors, either. Lots of classes are offered online. The library is great. They also have shuttles you can ride for free to avoid parking on school grounds.

    Overall, I would absolutely recommend UWM to any adult/returnjng student.

    Daughter had a great experience attending some courses through the Youth Options program at her High school.

    The management in this University is truly awful!
    The chancellor seems to be busy with things that don't matter at all and is completely oblivious to the basic needs of the graduate students in this University.
    Hope another one gets chosen, one that pays attention to what students really need!

    UWM not only offers some of the lowest rates around, our AE Mike Halagian, helps to make the process so simple! I just got an approval in 48 hours on a high balance conventional with almost no conditions! I LOVE the way UWM makes me look so good to my clients and referral partners!

    Received excellent education in math and sciences. Prepared me well to compete with my contemporaries in the nuclear navy.

    The University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee is a hidden gem. Some people from the Madison area don't have the best perception of Milwaukee as a city, but the truth is Milwaukee is very nice. The campus is situated on Milwaukees North East side just a few blocks south of Shorewood and a few blocks west of beautiful lake drive. As long as you stay east of the river you are in a fantastic area.

    Especially compared to Marquette, UW - Milwaukee has little issues in terms of safety. I feel safe around campus and it is patrolled regularly.

    The campus has both older style brick buildings as well as newer modern buildings. The freshman dorms are nicer than most colleges and they are all suite style so you only share a bathroom with other suite mates.

    The sports teams are D1 and are very competitive in the Horizon League conference. Just last year, they beat the Badgers basketball team at Madison. This year they were just shy of winning the conference championship with a chance to go to the NCAA tournament. Overall I have enjoyed my experience so far and highly recommend.

    Just came here for a year and found quickly the poor teaching quality. There isnt much to do here and the school is surrounded by ghetto. There's a reason it's cheap and accepts almost anyone.

    I'm giving them five stars just to spite everyone who gave one star for a ridiculous reason.

    Racist admissions office, will take notes about what you say over the phone to the student employees that actually play a role in your admission. Very biased towards anyone who is not from the small town this university is in and if you are from a Canadian University no credits will transfer over. I suggest a different university with all my heart.
