Welcome! I am the Transfer and Adult Student Admissions Representative here at UW-Milwaukee. I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Communication from UW-Parkside in 1997 and have been working in higher education admissions ever since. I am so excited to be working at UWM because Milwaukee is where I was born and raised. The city was ranked in Forbes magazine as one of the top 15 emerging cities, and I can tell you that being connected so closely to an amazing city has its advantages. From the amazing internship and research opportunities that are spread around our urban area to the cultural and fun activities to take part in, UWM has it all. As a representative who works primarily with adults and transfer students, I encourage those populations to reach out to me so we can discuss how UW-Milwaukee can be a home away from home for you. Feel free to get in touch with me at buschma2@uwm.edu or 414-229-4318.
