What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
classes and academic programs are great. i enjoy my classes and the people and teachers i have them with.
RaNetta from Milwaukee, WI
university of wisconsin-milwaukee is enriched with much diversity, and really gives the college experience. with a small college campus you feel like you can really get to know students, but yet there is still many opportunities to succeed surrounding you. if i were to rate uwm, i would give in a 8.
