    I think UW-Milwaukee is a pretty good low costing school that still gives you the great college experience. You can meet great people, and have fun experiences and make new memories, with not have to pay as much as private colleges.

    It's cheaper than most universities and you've got a lot of professors who are amazing. However, since I don't know what other universities are like I have nothing to compare it to, so three stars it is.

    UW-Milwaukee forks a lot out of pocket, and if it isn't used then there goes the student's money down the drain. However, I've personally been able to use many different services (No extra charge) and have been getting positive results. The Writing Center and SI have helped me so much already helping me through tough topics and essays. There's also many events for free that students can experience on campus. Welcome week is the week where no one needs to go to the cafeteria because there's amazing free food everywhere! Free movies and shows are another big part of getting a bang for the buck. However, if the student doesn't use them, then the experience is wasted. I would definitely recommend going to each and every one that you can!
