    Of course I am learning a lot, this school throws you enough required classes you have to take before getting into your major, so it is impossible to take any class and not learn a thing. What is different here, is that I don't just learn from professors but from my classmates who I study with or the discussion section that meets once a week for the class. You do not solely learn from classes but also from the environment surrounding you. You learn how to cross a street properly and not get run over; You learn to use the bus system efficiently and not get stranded a mile off of campus at 2am; You will have numerous heated political debates with friends (in wake of recent protests) that spark learning and thinking. You will learn the best study habits (looking out over the lake)--and the worst study habits(a redbull energy drink at midnight). You will learn to study your butt off while trying to plan three days worth of halloween costumes. You will how to Jump Around at football games without falling over. I've learned all these things and indeed, learning can be fun. read full review

    I would tell new students to really open up and try getting involved in activities. The more activities you become involved in the more people you meet and more opportunities will arise, such as an officer position or a job on campus. Even if you only get involved in one club, have fun with it. UW-Waukesha has a very supportive student body and faculty staff that will do nothing but encourage you to have the time of your life. read full review
