Welcome back, students – campus is way too quiet without you! Lucky for us, Milwaukee was alive and rocking this summer. Watch these Viddys for a 15-second glimpse at some of our favorite places, then grab your running shoes, bike or UPASS to explore this dynamic, diverse and eclectic city that UWM loves to call home.

Explore MKE: Sunset kiteboarding
Forget the California coast - a strong southeast wind turns Milwaukee into a kiteboarder's paradise.
Explore MKE: Summerfest
11 days. 700 bands. 4 miles from UWM. 'Nuf said.
Explore MKE: The Third Ward
Creativity on display: Milwaukee's art and fashion district has the most galleries in the city. Grab your UWM UPASS for Gallery Night events this October.
Explore MKE: Brady Street
We found Naima Adedapo (UWM & American Idol alumna) performing in one of Milwaukee's most eclectic neighborhoods during the annual Brady Street Festival. 2 miles from UWM.
Explore MKE: Milwaukee Art Museum
Watch the iconic Calatrava open in this Viddy, then grab your bike (for a 3-mile ride) to check out the 30,000 pieces of artwork inside. PS. Don't miss UWM Day at MAM on Sept. 30, 2012. UWM students get in free.
Explore MKE: Jazz in the Park
A Thursday night tradition in downtown Milwaukee's Cathedral Square Park. The free concert series runs June - September. Bring your bike or grab your UWM UPASS. Jazz is 3 miles from campus.
Explore MKE: Downtown
A bustling place for more than just play: Join the hundreds of UWM students who find employment and internships here. PS. Your UWM UPASS will take you straight down Wisconsin Ave.
Explore MKE: The Lakefront
Find everything you see here along a two-mile stretch of Lake Michigan from Bradford Beach (less than 10 minutes from UWM on your bike) south to Discovery World. We just can't guarantee the rainbow.
Explore MKE: Milwaukee Air Show
Jets roared over Lake Michigan (and UWM!) as thousands flocked to Milwaukee's beaches and lakeshore to check out the free show.
Explore MKE: Wisconsin State Fair
Oohs, aahs, and moos: A record-breaking 127,000 people stopped in for UWM Day at the Fair. Doesn't hurt that we were right next to the cream puffs!
