The Power to Experience UWM - on a whole new level!
The 2011 UWM Open House
Friday, October 28 2011 9am - 5pm
UWM Union, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd.
- interactive displays
- speak with advisors and staff from each school and college
- view samples of student work
- take specialized tours of buildings and departments, the campus and trolley tours of the neighborhood
- and so much more!
No advance registration is required, though you do have the option to pre-register at openhouseprereg.uwm.edu - this will help get you on your way faster after a quick check-in on the Union Concourse. If you don't pre-register, you can register that day on the ground level of the Union Concourse. And you can do it all at your own pace - stay an hour, stay the day or attend both days, whatever it takes to get the answers you need!
This year we are excited to be able to offer additional special presentations on topics important to prospective students and their families, as well as some fun entertainment and informative exhibitions. The layout of the event has been designed with an exciting new look and feel, making it even more inviting for visitors to explore and experience all that the Open House has to offer. Not only will participants be able to learn about areas in which they are already interested, but they'll be introduced to new and different possibilities they may not have previously considered.
