Affordable Things To Do in Your New
If you're new on campus, you may be wondering about what your life will be like outside of classes. As you move forward in your college
career, you'll probably discover more and more about what your campus and the city you're living in have to offer. For starters, here is
a small sample of some of the free or inexpensive experiences you can take advantage of while living on campus.
Picnic Point is a nearly mile-long peninsula along Lake Mendota's south shore. Just follow the Lakeshore bike path to this sanctuary
of trails, picnic tables and fire pits. If you’re overwhelmed by the hectic world on campus, remember that this natural area is just a
short distance from where you live.
The University Center offers lots of recreation opportunities for UWW students. The Warhawk Alley features bowling, pool, video games,
darts and more. It's a great place to hang out after classes or on the weekends.
UBike is a semester-long bike lending program hosted by the UWM Union Adventure Center. The group offers 75 bikes to UWM students to use
for free for the entire semester. If you don’t own a bike and want to take advantage of the great recreational trail systems in Milwaukee,
or want to have an additional means of transportation, check out this program. Just visit the Adventure Center during distribution weeks,
which happens around the second week of classes.
Head to the Christie Theatre in the University Union, which hosts the Cheap Seats Movie Series, where admission is just $2. That way, you
can get the movie experience without spending a lot.
The Schmeeckle Reserve is a 2,750-acre natural area, which the College of Natural Resources at UWSP uses as a field station. It's an ideal
place for hiking, jogging, biking, canoeing, fishing, wildlife watching or just relaxing.
